Now TV do you have to enter credit/debit card details to set up account

Found 21st Nov 2014
I have been given a small TV and was going to put it in my spare bedroom, unfortunately there is no TV Ariel socket and the indoor Ariel reception is poor. So I was thinking of getting now TV to watch the catch up TV channels. I do not want any of the subscription channels. It's not very clear on web sites how to set up now TV , is it literally plug and play or do I have to go online and set up an account, I didn't really want to put my card details in. Would be grateful for any help. Thank you

need to set up account with bank details etc
You can use a prepay card like orange cash.
NowTV on a NON-HDMI TV requires a £5 cable from Sky (you can get it from links off the nowtv site) which connects to Yellow (Composite) and audio RCA - typically either directly or use one of the older game consoles scart converter. You might also be able to use 4 ring trrl camera to tv adapter but you need to check the configuration as some of them swap audio R/L to L/R and some change gnd position, etc.

Thank you. The connection to tv is not a problem then as have the leads as mentioned by mark_ed. I just thought as I do not want the subscription channels I could do it without bank details. Wonder if I just put all zeros in if it would work. Had trouble in past cancelling subscriptions for things that's why I didn't want to put bank details in just in case I get charged and the hassle
It causes. Thanks for the replies, much appreciated
To set up an account you need your card details I believe.
But you can contact NOWTV via a live chat and have these details removed whenever you want.

I signed up to NOWTV for a free Movie pass, cancelled the Auto-Renew and got my card details removed from my account!

You can get a 30day movie trial here:

YOU WILL NEED TO CANCEL THE AUTO-RENEWAL TO ENSURE YOU'RE NOT CHARGED. If you do not know how to do this, then i'll be happy to assist.

Have you considered a ChromeCast/Nexus Player as alternatives to the NOWTV Box?

Chromecast is a very simple streaming device. Requiries a smartphone to work.
nexus player is similar to the nowtv box but has different apps.

Look them up and see if the apps are what you require.
Sky want you to put your credit card details in to prove your over 18.

They will not charge you for the 1st month, I cancelled after 48 hours.

Thank you, if you cancel so quickly I will do that.
A standard a/v cable won't work on now tv box, you'll need a NOKIA CA-75U cable from ebay or now tv website will sell you one!
Also consider http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321553462398?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
The picture shows an a/v output too
It's basically a mini computer using android and there are thousands of free apps you can install for free (all you need to set up is a free google email address)
