Sky might offer one of the best ways to watch television but its award-winning Q service does come with one big catch. Anyone wanting to tune into this popular service has to sign up for a lengthy contract with most deals demanding that customers join for at least 18 months. That’s a pretty big commitment especially as most plans start from around £27 per month.
Luckily, there is another way to watch Sky without having to sign on the dotted line with the recently re-branded NOW (formerly NOW TV) offering a contract-free way of beaming content straight to your telly.
NOW is a streaming service which means everything you watch arrives via the internet rather than a dish drilled into your wall but, as long as your web connection can take the strain, it’s a simple way of gaining access to a swathe of extra channels.
If that wasn’t enough to get you thinking about switching to NOW, the Sky-owned service has rebooted some deals which offers full access to Sky Sports, Entertainment and Cinema at much cheaper prices.
Firstly there’s a deal which features a Sky Entertainment and Cinema pass for £14.99 – that’s a whopping 40 percent off the usual cost. This discount is available for one month and includes a 7-day trial of NOW Boost which offers content in full HD quality and the option to view on more devices at once.

If it’s Sky Sports you fancy watching then there’s another bargain to be bagged.
NOW’s limited-time offer includes 11 Sky Sports channels for £25 per month – that’s a saving of £8.99 off the usual price.
You get that discount for the first three months and you can cancel at any time. Along with the cheaper cost, there’s also that 7-day free trial of NOW Boost.
Here are all the channels included in the deal
Sky Sports Premier League • Sky Sports Football • Sky Sports F1 • Sky Sports Cricket • Sky Sports Arena • Sky Sports Racing • Sky Sports Golf • Sky Sports Mix • Sky Sports NFL • Sky Sports News • Sky Sports Main Event.
It’s worth noting that along with a good web connection, you’ll also need a smart device to access NOW.
This Sky service is available on devices including Samsung, Sony and LG smart TVs, PlayStation and Xbox consoles, smartphones, Apple TV, Roku and Chromecast.
