NOWTV provides broadband and streaming service packages. If you are on the hunt for a new broadband provider, you might be considering NOWTV. Its excellent streaming service has taken the UK and Ireland by storm, so let’s see what their broadband packages have to offer.
Does NOWTV have freeview channels?
Unfortunately, you cannot access Freeview channels with the NOW TV stick. However, you can use it to stream all your NOW TV channels directly to your TV as well as accessing all your favorite streaming apps, including Netflix, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and YouTube.
What are ‘passes’?
NOW TV has the dual benefit of being a streaming platform and a TV channel provider. You’re able to mix and match subscriptions, which are known as TV passes, to get the channels and shows you want.
NOW TV offers five TV passes: Entertainment, Sky Cinema, Sports, Kids and hayu.
These are the basic packages, however NOW TV also offers bundles with TV Entertainment passes, for example: With the Fab Fibre plan, you can get a NOW TV Entertainment Pass for just £5.99 / month for 12 months. When you are placing your order you can ask about possible combination deals.
With NOW TV, although you can register up to four devices on your account, only two can watch TV at the same time. That being said, there’s nothing to stop you from signing up for another account, buying the same TV pass or passes, and getting a further two devices to watch up to four screens at the same time.
If you’re a flexible kind of person and you prefer rolling contracts to yearly subscriptions, NOWTV is a great choice. The different passes offer access to popular TV shows including Game of Thrones and The Wire, as well as classic movies or Kids movies, or reality TV, depending what you’re into. It can get expensive if you want to watch movies and TV shows in HD rather than SD, and on more than two devices at once. This is because you’ll need a NowTV Boost, which costs £3 and lasts for 30 days.
For travelling, the download mode is handy and allows you to watch your favorite TV shows without WIFI. However, you can’t download movies. Also, there’s no option to watch in 4K, even though these shows are available in 4K on a Sky package, and the search function isn’t as easy to use as on other streaming services. For example, you can only search by titles, not genres, characters or actors, and it doesn’t correct your spelling errors when searching either.
For queries regarding broadband packages with NOWTV, you can get support online via NOWTV’s website or ring 330 332 3050, or +44 330 332 3050 if you are ringing from outside the UK.
