The Best NOW Deals for Broadband, TV & Mobile

NOW Broadband explained

With NOW broadband you can get a wide range of premium TV, broadband internet, and home phone packages. You can bundle all services into one package with NOW.

NOW is a subsidiary company of Sky who offers on–demand TV programmes and services, a bit like Amazon Prime video and Netflix. You can get Sky’s popular TV programmes or sports channels without a long-term contract and you do not need a satellite dish to stream NOW.

NOW offers superfast fibre broadband and standard broadband, which you can take out without a contract or as a fixed term contract.

Is NOW broadband any good?

  • Flexibility – Unlike other broadband providers, you are not required to sign up to long-term contracts or a fixed term broadband package. You can choose a broadband contract option for 12 months or you can simply agree a monthly rolling contract that you can stop at any time.

    NOW broadband can be ideal for tenants or someone who is looking to move frequently as you can end NOW service at any time without being forced to pay cancellation charges.

  • NOW Subscription – You can simply subscribe to monthly or daily subscription passes to watch a specific channel or a programme. You can also choose a day or weekly pass to watch Sky Sports for any sporting event such as Test cricket, Premier League football or Formula 1 motor racing. NOW monthly pass is ideal if you are looking to watch a month long sporting events such as the premier league because you only need to pay for the months you want to watch.

    To watch NOW TV, you are not required to have NOW broadband services; but you do need to have a broadband service as all NOW TV services are available via online stream.

  • Can be expensive - Rolling contract are often slightly more expensive than long term fixed contracts. You are also required to cancel your rolling contract otherwise; they will simply roll you over for the same period.

    NOW services are flexible but can be expensive, it will depend on your individual need on how you prefer to use NOW services.
