What do I get with NOW TV Boost?
  • Full HD: Watch all the Sky Sports channels, plus selected shows and movies, in 1080p video quality instead of the usual 720p.
  • Smoother sporting action: Two Sky Sports channels – Main Event and Premier League – are available at 50 frames per second (except on LG TV).
  • Awesome audio: Got a surround sound speaker system or soundbar? Boost lets you enjoy a fully immersive audio experience with Dolby Digital 5.1.
  • An extra stream: Another handy benefit is that you get to stream on 3 devices at the same time. Perfect for families that can’t agree on what to watch!

We are on about Now TV here.

Sky have signed a wholesale deal with BT to allow them to sell BT Sport to its customers this must be very close as the Now TV sports and entertainment channels briefly showed up on some BT You view boxes before disappearing.

So all in for £33.50p/m is cracking value i feel.

Will SKY make Skysports cheaper for BT customers in return?
To add though btsports is coming to the nowtv stick/box.

Exactly as so much for OB saying those trusty old Pay TV sports channels were going to go the way of the dodo.

They also have a 6 month Entertainment pass with Now TV stick for £29.99.

I think we’ve dodged a bullet, given the problems they’ve had. Hopefully by next spring it will actually work, and not leak subs details like a sieve.

Yes, I appreciate that it's not here yet, but it would be good to get it at launch.

True, although Disney has claimed it's not their fault, and that it's customers who are re-using their passwords that have caused this.

Not sure if I believe that or not, but it's what they have claimed.
