Entertainment and boost now 14.99 (9.99 + 5) making it dearer than Netflix Premium tier for less concurrent streams and no UHD included oh and the small matter of no Movies included in that option of Now TV unlike Netflix.

I think those are the upper prices - I'm sure Now will continue with its discounting policy.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2021)

That's quite a lot of changes in one go on Now

Single stream unless you pay an extra 5 effectively combats password sharing your account.
A paid service with Adverts is taking the mick though. I tolerate it on the terrestrial catch up streamers as they're free but on a paid for service is hard to accept.

Disney+ is only 7.99 a month, with 4 concurrent streams, 4K options, 1200+ movies (including Disney, Pixar, MCU, Star Wars), documentaries, Fox/ABC libraries. Plus premier access to theatrical films for an extra fee. Makes the newcomer more lucrative.

Re: Changes to Virgin TV (2021)

This price rise for Boost is completely out of order.
Except for Mare of Easttown there's been nothing of note on Sky Atlantic this year. I've been offered Now Entertainment for 5/m until the new year but I'm not sure I'll bite. Hate the way the HBO content is whisked away so soon after broadcast.

Exactly so rounding of numbers lol D+ 8p/m, Netflix 10p/m (can be got cheaper), Amazon prime video 6p/m total = 24p/m you get quite a nice selection of shows and movies and a bit of live sport for that.

So vote with your feet and leave if your not happy its the only way they'll realise problem is many times people complain but then just continue to pay.

1andrew1 HQ suspects they may launch on 28th June as that's the first day of Wimbledon.

Base on past BBC Red Button "Summer" channels both Virgin and Sky launch them about four days before the first day of Wimbledon.

They did launch on the Thursday before the launch on Wimbledon 2018 & 2019.
