Sky Bringing Now TV To Consoles

New Service Launching in Summer

Sky has announced that it will be launching the Now TV service for various devices, including consoles. Jeremy Darroch, Chief Executive of Sky said:

“We’ll offer two distinctive ways to watch: the market-leading full Sky service for the whole family, complete with the widest range of channels, high quality products like Sky+, HD and Sky Go, and the peace of mind of a monthly bill; or the flexible, more spontaneous, pay-as-you-go service.  Starting with movies, it will soon expand to offer sport and entertainment as well.”

The service is expected to launch this summer, with Sky encouraging people to sign up for news on the new service here. This move will see Sky coming into direct competition with Lovefilm and Netflix in regards to movies. A pricing structure for Now TV is yet to be revealed.

    Wonder if, as a sky subscriber, I’ll get this free? Probably not :(

      It’ll be like Sky Store that’s on Anytime at the moment.

    Might have to cancel my sky subscription and go for just this, wonder if I can get it to work on two consoles, one upstairs and one downstairs rather than have to pay for additional sky boxes?

    Sounds like an alternative method instead of releasing a Sky Go app for consoles. If the pricing is good though, I may well consider it.

    This could be really good for people without Sky (me), who’d like to view occasional Sky programmes (me again).

    If there’s a free trial then I’m in but if now then I’ll just stick with Netflix.

    Sounds like a good idea, especially as I cannot get Anytime+ where I live.

      if you have broadband (and a HD box) you should be able to get Anytime+. It was opened up to any broadband provider a few days ago

    I’d get really frustrated as a Tsa writer, taking my time to research and write articles only for 3 or 4 people to leave comments that clearly show they didn’t bother to read beyond the headline!
