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 £21 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, 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.

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.

If I could give -100 then I would. Placed an order. Asked for the service to be supplied in my new home, but the hub to be sent to my current address. I wanted to have the hub arrive at my current address so I would be able to accept the delivery and have my internet available for the day I moved. Apparently they did this. I logged in to check on the hub delivery and it was being sent to my new address, 503 miles away. Called to have the address changed. Clearly that was stupid of me to think that was an easy fix. Had to cancel my order because the hub delivery address could not be changed!!!!!!!!! I was told if I placed another order, my internet active date would be 6 days later to what I had ordered. That is utterly idiotic considering my date was already booked. Ended up complaining. A manager was supposed to call me today, but obviously that was far too much work. Called just before 5 to find out when the manager would call and I was told I could get my chosen date. Placed another order. Then I got an email with them delaying it 4 days. Called and complained again. The agent, for the third time, requested a manager to call but he could not amend my active date. Again I cancelled. BT can get me online the next day, and I do not get why it was impossible to change my hub delivery, nor keep my original date. Apparently the manager who couldn't be bothered to call me today will call me tomorrow. I have a feeling hell may freeze over first. If they are this incompetent in placing an order, I've had a very lucky escape. I would rather pay an extra £5 a month to BT than deal with this incompetence, inconsideration and pure ignorance. Good riddance.

I placed my order for broadband on the 8th March. 6 weeks later and I'm still yet to be connected. They don't seem to have any clue as to the problem or simply don't care. I've phone up and emailed countless times but it's like trying to get help from a goldfish. Nothing is remembered, acknowledged or followed up. I keep getting told it's a priority, so God knows how slow they'd normally be. This company fills me with despair. And to top it off, I pay for their TV packages which I'm unable to use without internet.

I've had Now TV broadband for about 3 years and up to now they have been relatively problem-free. However my phone line and broadband went dead 3 days ago and I reported the problem. A day later my phone line was working again (dealt with by Openreach) but internet still not working. NowTV reckon my router is faulty and I have to pay £39 before they'll send me another one. Apparently being a loyal customer and not still under contract means they won't do anything to help. I told them I would sooner find another provider than pay for a router which presumably got damaged as a result of the line problems. I'm paying £25 a month for very average broadband speeds (the cheeky s#ds even tried to suggest I should upgrade !!!) I'm now waiting for a manager to call me back but I'm not holding my breath. Very poor customer service. Their website is a complete joke too....just try looking for a phone number so you can actually call and speak to someone real. It'll take hours. Very Dissatisfied 😡😡😡

Don't go with this company for your internet. I've been with them for the last 12 months and I would have been lucky if for even one of these months the internet in my home worked.

Review
Over 5 weeks, there was 6 delays in getting my broadband connected. I had to call 3 times, and they kept blaming Openreach, but I live in a small town and know an Openreach engineer, who said they're talking rubbish, Openreach had barely any work on (in fact, the day I spoke to the engineer, he said at 9am that morning, they had literally run out of work for the day), and he said if the order was through, it would have been done no bother.

So multiple delays, lying to me, and now I have to cancel my order and go with another provider. Oh and if you want to cancel, you have to speak to a team who then send the cancellation to the cancellation team, you can't talk to them directly. It takes up to 3 days to cancel too!

Absolutely horrific experience and won't ever be having anything to do with them again!!
