NOW Broadband Features

Does Sky own Now TV?

In short, yes it does! Now TV was founded in 2012 as a division of Sky Limited. Now TV was originally just a TV streaming subscription service trying to rival Netflix. But, in 2016 Now TV launched 'Now Broadband' to it’s UK customers with phone and broadband packages starting from just £18 per month, and fibre broadband and line rental from just £23 per month.

Is Now TV as good as Sky TV?

It’s hard to see why anyone would join Sky TV when Now TV can stream Sky cinema, Sky sports, and 1000’s of ad-free children TV episodes without a contract. Now TV can also offer other channels that won’t be found on Freeview like: Sky One, Sky Atlantic, MTV, Gold, Discovery channel and more.

Now TV is all about flexible, hassle-free TV. One of the advantages of Now Broadband over it’s sister company Sky is the option to sign up without a contract. Customers who are happy to sign up to a 12-month contract will get a reduced rate. Dip in and out for a month whenever you choose. It’s perfect for keeping children entertained during the summer holidays. Or, add Sky Cinema pass for a treat over the Christmas Holidays.

Compare Sky Broadband and Now Broadband

Both Now TV and Sky offer a broadband package, but to be honest - they are practically the same. They both use the same Openreach network and offer an average download speed of 11Mb for standard broadband and between 36Mb-63Mb for fibre broadband.

NOW Broadband Pros & Cons

Key features for NOW Broadband packages

NOW Broadband Pros

  • Broadband without a contract available, £60 setup fee applies. Or no setup fee if you opt for a 12 month contract
  • Cheap broadband with a guaranteed download speed. If you don't receive the speed your contract states you can leave without a charge!
  • Free phone line installation (if applicable)

NOW Broadband Cons

  • If you want to download movies or on demand programs you'll need a Wi-Fi connection. You won’t be able to download via 3G or 4G broadband
  • TV service is not comprehensive compared with Sky TV
  • If you want to watch Now TV you will need a compatible device, it does not come free when you join Now TV

Compare Now TV with Sky TV

When it comes to the amount of TV channels available, SKY wins hands down. Now TV will work out cheaper if you only want select channels, or only want Sky cinema passes to entertain the children during the holidays. Other things to consider are that Sky TV generally offer a free Sky box (installation fee may apply). Now TV does not come with a Smart Box device, so watching Now TV would require the additional purchase of a Now TV device (prices range from £14.99 to £45.99). Before you splash out, you may already have a compatible device. Now TV supports over 60 devices including: iPad, iPhones, Samsung Smart TV’s (from 2015), Apple TV, PS4, Xbox One, EETV, LG Smart TV’s and more. The key feature missing from Now TV is the ability to record streamed TV - less of a problem with TV on demand, but there’s no guarantee your program will be there when you want it. Sky however is the master of TV planning and recording, so if recording TV programs is important to you, Now TV may not be the best option.

FREE 7 day trial available on all Now TV passes

Can I watch BBC and ITV on Now TV?

If you want to watch freeview channels, this can be done via apps like: BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, My5, & 4OD, which are built into the NowTV Smart Box. Other paid TV services like Netflix are also available via apps (additional subscription required).

How do I switch my broadband to NOW Broadband?

Switching your broadband provider is a less painful exercise than it used to be. Before you begin the process, it's definitely worth making sure that you're outside of your contract tie-in with your current broadband provider. If you aren't then you will face a financial penalty and will probably be required to pay for each month that you have left on your contract. If you would like to switch to NOW Broadband and your contract has ended, there is no need to contact your existing supplier. The switching process will be triggered by NOW Broadband. The exception to this is if your current provider is Virgin Media. In this instance, you will need to contact both NOW Broadband and Virgin Media to co-ordinate the start of your new service with the end of your old one. If you're ready to start looking for a NOW Broadband deal, just enter your postcode into our broadband availability checker to find the best deals in your area.

Review
I sign up with them using the comparison site for 63 Mb broadband and exclusive anytime calls. After 15 days my home phone stopped working, called customer service and was told to pay call charges before we can make any calls despite signing up for anytime call plan. Misleading broadband speed, sold as 63Mb and all we are getting is 40Mb, no wifi signal up stairs in kitchen etc avoid at any cost.

Review
I applied online to move from Sky Broadband & Phone (following the March 2021 price hike) to Now. All went through and got a confirmation e-mail at 12:48. Charge was processed and debited from my bank two days later. The e-mail asked me to verify the account, which I did and an hour later my account changed from 'processing' to 'cancelled'. There has never been any issue with payments to my Sky account, so I phoned Now who apologised and reinstated the order and I got a second 'welcome' e-mail at 14:28. Checking this later I saw that this too had changed to 'cancelled'. Phoning again I was informed that the problem was transferring the telephone number to Now. But again it was deemed sorted, and I got a third 'welcome' e-mail at 19:46.

On the day of the expected transfer I had not received the new Now Hub, the cost of which had been debited from my account two weeks earlier. So I phoned Now again to find out that the transfer had gone nowhere and they still could not retain the previous telephone number - which naturally is important.

Given that Sky and Now are ultimately the same company this is unacceptable.

Sky say there is absolutely nothing wrong at their end. Now say that Sky are blocking the transfer. One of them is lying.

I am sick to death of both.

Review
Moved to NowTV from Virgin who were a price rip off. NowTV phone and Broadband deal is good value for money financially, but having had it now for a month, I would like the public to know - that for some unknown reason the BroadBand could drop anytime during to day (may be 3 or 5 times) in a day - normally for around 5 minutes each time. So if you use live video calls or streams for your job, I would not recommend this company, as its internet is good but unreliable. You cannot be going in and out of Meetings, because of Internet Service Provider, not being able to deliver a sound service.
When I am not in company meetings, the Broad Band is brilliant and best deal ever.

One of the worst decisions I made to choose NOW Broadband.
I am a Key Worker for an IT company and they made my days worse. Very slow speed, poor customer service, now resolution till now. Don't go with their cheap pricing deals.
