Now TV on YouView

If you take a look in the On Demand Players section of YouView, you’ll find “Now TV”… but what is it?

What is Now TV?

Now TV LogoThis is a service operated by Sky that’s available on the YouView platform. You can think of it as a rival to other on-demand movies services such as Netflix, Lovefilm and Blinkbox.

The Now TV service scores over some of the competition by offering blockbuster movies before other services. It can do this because it’s run by Sky, and gets movie content from the various Sky Movies channels.

The Now TV service adds up to 20 new movies a month to the service, and you can sign up either online at, or via your YouView box.

At the time of writing, the cost is £8.99 a month, and a 30 day free trial is available. There’s no long-term contract.
