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 including line rental, or fibre broadband from £20 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 period.

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.

Long issue. Basically Upgrade to Now Fibre, since moving service has become patchy & slow. Email to ask for a new hub after 15 emails NOW have sent me a list of things to do which takes up to 13 hours. I don’t have that time in my day/week/month. I found them to be very unsupportive no customer service at all no one to call & talk thru things. So even they are more expensive I’m going to look at BT.

Avoid this rubbish company customer service are nothing more than big liars. I cancelled my contract with them during the first 14 days and till now did not receive my refund. Called them 3 times they pretend during the call they are processing the refund, going to escalate with my bank. Thank god I cancelled before getting involved. If there was a no star option I would have gone to it.
