There has never been a better time to sign-up to NOW TV. Seriously. The Sky-owned streaming service has unleashed a seriously attractive deal – you can stream from any of their channel bundles (known as Passes in NOW TV parlance) to watch for the next seven days without paying a penny. As the latest Government guidelines advise against all non-essential travel outside, you should have plenty of opportunities this weekend to take advantage of the hundreds of on-demand box sets, movies, live channels, and reality TV shows available on NOW TV.

This brand-new NOW TV deal is especially welcome at the minute as parent firm Sky is no longer able to undertake new installations. The precaution has been taken due to the ongoing public health crisis caused by coronavirus. So, if you were planning to get a Sky TV dish installed to watch the new season of WestWorld, or catch-up with every episode of Chernobyl, Game Of Thrones, Barry, Big Little Lies, and hundreds more – NOW TV is your best bet right now.

And secondly, the deal arrives just as NOW TV has added a brand-new channel.

The flagship National Geographic Channel has now landed on the Entertainment Pass, replacing Nat Geo Wild – a channel that didn’t have anywhere near the breadth of programming available on the main channel. National Geographic is now available as a live channel and on-demand. Sky-owned NOW TV has promised over 650 hours of documentary and human-interest programming. That should be more than enough to fill your weekend while socially distancing.

Content already available from National Geographic includes Cosmos: Possible Worlds hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson, as well as survival series Running Wild with Bear Grylls and popular series To Catch A Smuggler.

NOW TV’s Entertainment Pass costs £8.99 a month – although you can get a week free with the current bumper offer. As well as the new content from the National Geographic Channel, you’ll also be able to stream shows from Sky One, Sky Atlantic, Sky Witness, Sky Arts, Sky Comedy and Sky Crime.

There is also content available from Comedy Central, MTV, Discovery Channel, VICE, Challenge, GOLD and Fox.

Sky Cinema – offering access to the latest premieres – is also available as a standalone Pass. There is also Sky Sports, Kids and hayu Passes for the latest fixtures, children’s channels, and reality TV shows, respectively.

NOW TV can be streamed on your laptop, games console, iPhone or iPad, Android smartphone, or Smart TV. In total, there are over 60 devices that are now capable of running the NOW TV app, including the company’s own NOW TV Smart Stick and Smart Box with 4K.
