Between its eleven dedicated channels, Sky Sports provides some of the best coverage of the Premier League, International Cricket Council, Formula One, Ryder Cup, and more. The satellite broadcaster has poured investment into its channels, introducing clever tech like the ability to pick camera angles when watching live F1 – so you can decide to stick with the view from a specific drivers’ cab, rather than whatever the director decides is the best view of the race.
It’s all impressive stuff… but it doesn’t come cheap. Adding the Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Football to an existing Sky Q subscription alone costs £18 a month, and those who want the complete collection of channels will need to spend £25 a month.
Thankfully, there is a brilliant new deal that unlocks all 11 Sky Sports channels for less than a tenner.
NOW, formerly NOW TV, is offering new customers the chance to watch all 11 Sky Sports channels on the big screen for 24-hours for a one-off payment of £9.98. If timed right, that could be enough time to catch two football fixtures. NOW has dedicated streaming apps available on Smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV dongles, games consoles including the PlayStation 4 and Xbox, as well as set-top boxes like the Apple TV.
But what makes this deal particularly special is the fact that NOW also includes a five-month subscription to five Sky Sports channels, including Sky Sports Premier League, on your iPhone or Android smartphone. So, whether you want to stream the footie in another room at home, watch on a train journey, or stream the latest action on an upcoming staycation – you’ll be able to enjoy full access to the five Sky Sports channels for almost half a year …for £9.98.
It’s a stellar deal. And as such, it won’t be around for much longer.
NOW has confirmed that its one-off £9.98 Sky Sports deal will expire on September 27, 2021. So, those who want to stream the action from Sky Sports on a smartphone or tablet will want to add the offer to their basket as soon as possible!
If you’d rather watch on a bigger screen, it’s worth taking a look at the latest discounts and deals available on Sky Q. Virgin Media, which has its own Sky Q-rivalling TV 360 service, also offers access to the complete collection of Sky Sports channels. Like Sky, Virgin Media constantly offers new bundles and deals on its broadband and telly packages.
And if you’re tempted to avoid all of these options and look into free livestreams online…. it’s worth remembering that the Premier League, Sky and a number of other companies are clamping down on these illicit streams. Last month, police officers and investigators from FACT – the UK’s leading intellectual property protection organisation – have been visiting addresses across the UK to serve Cease and Desist notices.
Kieron Sharp, chief executive of FACT, said: “We employ a range of tactics to prevent the provision of illegal streaming. Our continuous activity targets different elements of the global piracy landscape, with consideration given to the scale of the offending to ensure effective and proportionate action is taken. By taking these measures we are sending a clear message. Piracy is fraud and anyone motivated by financial gain from doing this needs to know that this is a crime which will be taken seriously by Police.”
