NOW TV offers & deals (March 2020): How to pay less for Sky Atlantic, Fox, Sky Cinema and more

now tv offers and deals

Get Sky Atlantic, Sky Cinema and Sky Sports without getting Sky – and pay less with these great NOWTV offers.

I’m a big fan of Sky’s NOW TV and I’ve been using it for years, saving me a fortune as I’ve been able to stop paying for TV via my broadband provider, whether that’s Sky, Virgin, BT or TalkTalk.

What is NOW TV?

NOW TV is essentially an on-demand video streaming service, just like Netflix and iPlayer. The big difference is it lets you watch Sky channels. Why bother when you can do this direct? Well NOW TV is so much cheaper. And you’ll see below there are always deals to bring the price down further.

Another great thing is that you can subscribe month by month, rather than tie yourself into a year-long contract as you would if you had satellite or cable TV.

It works best if you don’t watch ALL the different channels. That’s because films, TV and sport are all on different packages. Very cheap if you get one or two, but it can be pricey if you get more. And of course you need to consider if you’d be better off picking Netflix or Amazon Prime instead – there’s not enough time to watch all three!

You’re able to watch it on two devices simultaneously, and register on six different devices.

New NOW TV customer offers and deals

The best offers are pretty much always for new customers. If you’ve never used NOW TV before always start with one of these. If there’s a free or very cheap pass featured further down you can always add that at a later date. I’ve ranked them in the order of how good I think they are.

Up to £29 cashback

You can get some decent cashback when you buy a NOW TV pass via a cashback site, often up to £12. These are usually only for new NOW TV users. Do double check the cashback rates as they can change on a daily basis. If you don’t want to continue with NOW TV at full price, make sure you cancel before the prepaid package is up.

And if you’ve not signed up to cashback sites Quidco or TopCashback you can get a £10 bonus when you first shop via the site. There’s a minimum spend of £5 for this added bonus with Quidco so you can get all the passes, but it’s £10 with TopCashback which limits the passes you can buy.

Or if you sign up for my newsletter, then there’s an increased £17 bonus from Quidco for new members (min spend £10). That would mean a max of £29 cashback!

First-timer special offers for NOW TV Cinema or NOW TV Entertainment

If you’re a newbie and there aren’t any short-term offers, these deals are worth considering, though the cashback offer above usually represents better value.

You can get six months of Entertainment for £31.99 (so £5.33 a month). If you buy six months of both Sky Cinema and six months of Entertainment you’ll get 52% off. But remember it’s only a deal if you actually want to watch both and you want them for that amount of time.

These offers are only for new NOW TV subscribers. Make sure you cancel before the prepaid package is up or you’ll pay full price for the following months.

Existing NOW TV customer offers and deals

Most of the special offers are only for new customers, but there are lots of ways existing customers can save each month. Usually this involved either buying a gift card pass, or buying a multi-month pass with a NOW TV box or stick when these are on offer (which happens quite a bit).

With the passes you will get a code which you can enter into your account. Go to the view passes page and you’ll see where to add the code. If you are buying the passes with a NOW TV stick or box then the newer ones have the passes preloaded and are added to your account when you activate the device and log in.

Here are the best deals:

One month for NOW TV Entertainment or Cinema for £2.99

I’ve spotted this price over on Amazon, though bear in mind these can change at any time. Pay £2.99 and you’ll get emailed or posted a code for a NOW TV Entertainment or Cinema Pass. 

> Get a cheap entertainment pass on Amazon

> Get a cheap Sky Cinema pass on Amazon

Multi-month pass (no box) deals – including two months movies for £15

You can usually buy a gift card for multiple months which works out cheaper than paying full price direct with NOW TV.

You can usually pick up a two-month movies pass from Amazon or Currys for £15, or two months Entertainment pass for £10. Sometimes there are four or six-month passes available too. Amazon occasionally has third-party sellers with even bigger discounts.

NOW TV cancellation trick

If you go to cancel your NOW TV pass, you’ll be asked the reason you are cancelling. Select the option saying it’s too expensive for you and you might be offered a discount to stay. If that’s as good or better than the existing customer deals I’ve listed above, then you can accept it and pay less. This will be for a limited time, often three or four months, so don’t forget to repeat this process.

Do keep an eye on your emails too. It’s not unheard of for NOW TV to offer a discounted price after you’ve ca

Free NOW TV Passes with VeryMe and Vodafone

Right now Vodafone customers can get free passes from the VeryMe loyalty scheme. You can access this from your MyVodafone app. The passes on offer are one month of movies, one month of entertainment and one month of mobile sports. It’s while stock lasts. 

If you’re not on Vodafone there’s a trick to get access for six weeks for £10. More here.

Free Now TV passes via fitness app

If you download the Sweatcoin app there’s a chance you’ll find a deal to get a free two-month Entertainment pass or one-month cinema pass, for new and existing NOW TV customers. They can come and go, so if it’s not there right now, it’s still worth signing up and keeping an eye. However, there hasn’t been one since late January 2019.

The idea behind the app is to reward you for walking and running. Linked to your phone’s step measuring app, you earn one “sweatcoin” for every one thousand steps you take. In return you can exchange your coins for different offers. These seem to change over time, but I’ve heard the NOW TV offers tend to return quite frequently if it’s not there when you look.

You actually need 6.95 in coins to get the pass. I received 0.95 coins for joining up, so you can either get out there and walk 6000 steps to get the six additional coins needed. Or you can watch a short video each day worth one coin on its own.

Give the app a few minutes to update then go into the offers tab and you’ll hopefully see the NOW TV offer. Simply buy the offer with your coins, and you’ll be given a code to enter into your NOW TV account.

Remember to cancel at NOW TV before the free months are up if you don’t want to pay the full amount after the freebie period. Oh, the offer is limited to one code per person.

Latest Sky Sports NOW TV deals

Check out the cashback offer at the top of the page for the best deal, but if you’ve already signed up to Quidco you often can save between 10% and 50% on month, week and day passes.

There are usually quite a few of these so I’ve listed them on my bespoke deals page for Sky Sports.

Latest NOW TV stick offers

Even if you don’t need the NOW TV box or stick, buying them on offer with a pass included is often cheaper than paying full price. You can always sell the unwanted box at CEX, or use it on a different TV.

There are two types of device. The NOW TV Stick and 4K box. Both let you watch NOW TV, Netflix, iPlayer, All4 and ITV Player on your TV if you don’t have a smart TV. You can even play premium Spotify through one. 

I tend to stock up on boxes and passes when I spot decent deals. You can’t apply more than one pass at a time, so just add another when you’re in your final month.

Though it’s not always the case, the best prices are generally at Curry’s, Amazon and Argos. I’ll update this page regularly, but it’s worth checking the links to see if there’s been a new price cut.

NOW TV 4k box and multi-pass deals – £24.99 (Save 50%)

Though the box is 4K, NOW TV channels aren’t just yet. You can get one of these with a bundle that contains one month of Entertainment, Cinema and kids and a day Sports pass. I’ve seen deals selling this for as low as £24.99 rather than the rrp of £49.95.

Older NOW TV box and pass offers

You might see older NOW TV boxes in clearance sales, and I’ll share decent offers here. The boxes will still work fine and the passes should be valid too. If you’ve found they’ve expired when you enter the code, go to the NOW TV help live chat and as long as you can provide proof of purchases they’ll give you a replacement code.

It will upgrade the quality on all your passes for the single price, except the Hayu pass, and there’s only limited content on the Kids pass.

How do you watch NOW TV?

You need a decent internet connection to stream programmes via NOW TV. If you can do this already with iPlayer then you’ll be ok for NOW TV.

Lots of smart TVs will have a NOW TV app built-in, and this is the easiest way to watch NOW TV. If you don’t have the app then it’s worth buying a smart stick to plug into your telly. These don’t have to cost much, starting at £15, though there are often deals to get these for far less (see further down this page for the latest offers). They also have apps to let you watch Netflix, iPlayer and other on-demand services.

Alternatively NOW TV can be streamed via your computer, phone or tablet. You can register up to six devices, and you can change one device every month. You can watch on two devices at the sames time.

  1. Can I take the Currys two month deal for the Entertainment Pass every two months throughout the year? I.e. buy a two month Entertainment Pass for £10 then cancel just before it expires, then buy another two month Entertainment Pass at £10 and activate it the day after the previous one expires.

    1. Yes! You absolutely can. Though when you cancel see if Now tv offers you a better discount. You can cancel at the start of month two and still get it for the full month. So if you don’t get a decent offer there’s time to pick up a discounted card

  2. I found that you can use Tesco club card vouchers for now tv credit. This at 1.50 per 0.50 p

    I then did the cancellation trick and had the movies for less than £5 for 3 months without spending a penny I will have had it for 6 months.

  3. Hi

    I took out a monthly Sports Pass for December to watch the football. I am on vacation for all of January and planned to cancel before end of month.

    Sky billed at 15:45 on 24 December and I received bill on 27 December for JANUARY.

    Called Now TV and they said nothing could be done!!

    If I want to cancel today then I cannot watch rest of DECEMBER.

    Not good way to retain customers!

    Hi, existing customers may already have discovered this, but if you’re on the full price £9.99 per month cinema pass, or your existing deal is about to end, it’s worth clicking the ‘cancel’ button to see if they will offer you a deal to stay.
    I’ve just been offered 4 months at £3.99 per month for Sky Cinema, just because I opted to cancel my renewal. You get a couple of those ‘Are you sure? Look what you’ll miss’ type pages, but carry on cancelling and when you reach the page that asks your reason for leaving, choose the ‘I can’t afford it at the moment’ option. Continue to the next page (which looks like they’ve accepted that you’re going, but stay strong!) and click cancel on that one, too. Then if they offer you the deal.

    Obviously I have only done this for myself, so I can’t guarantee it works for everyone, but so far I’ve always been offered a discount whenever I’ve cancelled my renewal.

  9. Hey Andy, Do you know if the £10 bonus is only for when you buy a pass? Can I buy the Now TV Box ONLY and still get the cashback? That would make the Box £4.99!

    The terms say “£10 cashback bonus is awarded on transactions on or over £5.99 at Now TV only.” and “You must make a minimum order value of £5.99 to qualify for this cashback offer, including any cost of delivery.”

    That makes it sound like you get £10 cashback on ANY purchase from NowTV as long as it’s over £5.99.

    It’s the rest of the info that refers to buying ‘passes’ and ‘packages’ which makes it confusing as to what you have to buy to get the cashback:

    “Sign up to Quidco and get 3 months of Sky Cinema or Sky Entertainment for FREE!
    Earn 100% cashback on selected 3 month passes until 12th January!”

    “Here’s how to claim your £10 bonus…
    1. Join Quidco, for free
    2. Once directed to Now Tvs website, simply pick the package you wish to purchase- whether that be Entertainment, Cinema, Sports or Kids- sign up to the trial or purchase your pass.
    Current Now Tv Deals:
    3 months Entertainment for £6.99
    3 months Cinema for £9.99
    Sky Sports 1 month for £20
    3. We’ll credit a £10 cashback bonus to your account (on top of any cashback you will earn from Now Tv) by the 14th February 2017.”

  10. Hi I’ve bought now TV box with 6 months entertainment pass and free sky sports if I registered by November 30 but I can’t access the sky sports

    1. Was this at Argos? Have you tried contacting NOW TV? I think they only have live chat but they are generally quite helpful

  11. Hi,
    Have bought the Now TV box with 4 month cinema pass. Haven’t signed up to Now TV before.
    If I buy the 2 month cinema pass from Now TV (in their Black Friday sale) for £5, can I use that first then use the 4 month voucher that came with the box?
    Thanks for any guidance!

  12. Hi
    You state I can get a 6 month Entertainment Now package for £24.95 from Amazon but when you click your feeder link the Amazon price is £28.95.

    By my resigning – that is over 10% more than you information????

    1. Hi Linzi,

      Prices change daily, so it looks like it’s gone up a little. I’ll update the page this week with the latest offers.

  13. Hi. I’ve picked up a box with a 4 month movie pass from Argos. Haven’t signed up yet. Can I sign up with the 6 months of movies at £35.99 and add the pass to get 10 months of movies?

    1. Hi Neil, yes you should be able to add the second code when there is less than one month left on the pass. These normally last for a year, and I’ve stacked them in this way for the last two years. It’s worth checking there aren’t any new terms and conditions on the pass though, just in case.
