I’m a big fan of NOW TV (we’ve got one to watch Sky Atlantic shows) as a cheap way to watch Sky channels. If you are a fan of the Premier League, golf, cricket Formula 1 or dozens of other sports but can’t afford Sky, it can be a real money saver.
What is NOW TV?
Think of NOW TV as a pay per view iPlayer for the Sky TV channels. The sports pass give you access to all 10 Sky Sports channels without a contract, so you can watch per day, per week or per month.
Though Sky has recently updated its channel line up to specialist channels such as Sky Sports Premier League, Sky Sports Cricket and Sky Sports Golf, NOW TV doesn’t let you just pick one channel. But this can still work out cheaper than subscribing monthly via Sky, Virgin, BT or TalkTalk.
NOW TV can be streamed on your computer, tablet, some smart TVs, Chromecast or via special NOW TV box.
The passes don’t include TV or movie channels, which you need to buy separate passes for – though there are plenty of discounts to be found and I’ve summarised the best on my NOW TV deals page.

Both cashback sites offer up to £8 cashback on the different sports passes. It’s not always the best deal so do check the other options further down this page.
However, what does generally make these offers unbeatable is if you are a new user of either of the cashback sites.
Quidco: £10 new customer bonus then up to £8 extra
You can get a £10 bonus from Quidco when you spend £5, This is on top of the other cashback. You can obviously make that first spend at any shop listed, not just NOW TV.
So there’s the potential to get a total of £17 back for a week pass via Quidco, meaning you’ll make £6 profit!
Sign up via the link below then search for NOW TV. Make sure you’ve closed any open browser windows for NOW TV before doing this.
TopCashback: £10 new customer bonus, then up to £8 extra
The bonus rate also £10 with TopCashback but you need to spend £10, which rules out the day pass. Again you need to be a new TopCashback customer, and then a new NOW TV customer too.
You can sign up via the link below then search for NOW TV. The actual rates for the NOW TV cashback can change on a daily basis so it’s worth looking at both to see which has the best deal. Do read all the terms and conditions to make sure you don’t miss out.
Far better than a Sky contract is a £6.99 Day Pass and £10.99 Week Pass. Even at full price, I think these passes represent really good value for money.
However there are almost always discounts to be had. Here’s the pick of current deals
You can get 20% off a day pass until 29th December. It’s for new NOW TV users only, and it’ll cost you £5.59. This offer ends 29th December 2017.
Or existing customers can save 15%, This deal ends 28th December 2017.
These passes don’t start until you activate them, and they don’t auto-renew.
Free day pass with Pringles at Tesco
Buy two packs of promotional Pringles at Tesco and you can get a free Sky Sports Day Pass for NOW TV. Online it looks like it’s now £2.25 a pack, so the pass will cost you £4.50 – though you do of course get two tubes of crisps.
The promotion ends while stocks last, and you’ve until 31st May 2018 to claim your pass. You can only claim one pass per NOW TV account.
Again you can usually save at least 10% on the week pass.
10% off a week pass for new customers
You can get a week pass for £9.89 direct from NOW TV if you’re a new customer. Ends 29th December.
£9 NOW TV Sky Sports week passes – existing and new customers
I’m a big fan of the gift card reselling website Zeek and it’s just started selling NOW TV passes. For sports, it’s the week-long pass and you can usually get one for £9 rather than £11 – cheaper than most places. Stock comes and goes but it’s worth a look.
If you’ve never used Zeek before you can also save an extra £3 with the code CLEVERCASH, however there’s a minimum spend of £23 meaning you might need to buy more than one pass, or use that code on a different voucher (there are dozens of big brands such as iTunes and Amazon).
£10 Amazon week gift card – existing and new customers
Existing customers can get a slight discount by ordering a physical gift card from Amazon. It’ll cost you £10.
Free week pass for Npower customers
If you get your energy from Npower, you are entitled to a free week Sky Sports pass. You need to claim it by 31st December 2017. However, they have run out of stock at the moment!! Hopefully more will come available soon.
If you are going to watch a lot of the action on Sky Sports it’s probably cheaper to get a subscription via Sky, Virgin or BT. But if you want to dip in and out month by month you can buy a month pass for £33.99.
Get 50% off a month pass for new and existing NOW TV users
There’s no expiry date listed, but this is a cracking deal as existing users can get it too! It works out as £16 for the first month.
Unlike the day and week passes, this does auto-renew at full price, so remember to cancel to avoid this.
If that deal has ended it is possible to save 10%, but I think the week or day passes are better value.
Get two months for £20 a month
If you think you’ll want it for a couple of months, then this isn’t a bad deal either. You pay £20 a month for two months. If you carry on after that it’s full price, Ends 10th December 2018.
