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: £12 new customer bonus then up to £8 extra
You can get a £12 bonus from Quidco when you spend £10, 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 £20 back when buying a month pass or £15 for a week pass via Quidco,
TopCashback: £10 new customer bonus, then up to £8 extra
The bonus rate is £2 less at £10 with TopCashback, also when you spend £10. Again you need to be a new TopCashback customer, and then a new NOW TV customer too.
You can sign up via either of the links below. 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 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
£4 or £9 NOW TV Sky Sports week passes
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 £5 (so £7 overall) with the code CLEVERCASH, cutting it to just £4, saving 64%!
£10 Amazon week gift card
Existing customers can get a slight discount by ordering a physical gift card from Amazon. It’ll cost you £10.
You can get 20% off a day pass until 28th September. It’s for new NOW TV users only, and it’ll cost you £5.59.
These passes don’t start until you activate them, and they don’t auto-renew.
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.
Unlike the day and week passes, this does auto-renew at full price, so remember to cancel to avoid this.
