The full suite of NOW TV channels including Sky Sports are due to be available and recordable via a BT box in time for the start of the 2019/20 football season.

Only 8 weeks to go so you should hear something soon.

2 channels, one of which - Sports Extra - hardly ever has anything on it!!
We were watching cricket earlier on Main event when all of a sudden, with no warning, it switched to Formula 1
As you say, £36 a month and they decide what sport you watch. Its appalling.

Yeah I’d hope so. They’ve just put my contract up by £4 so if the announcement isn’t within the next month I’ll be putting a notice to cancel

Well that's the thing, it is optional, no one has to buy a NOW TV pass in the same way you don't have to have pay to watch Netflix or Amazon Prime, even though you can access it via your BT TV box

Currently, excluding discounts/vouchers/codes (of which you can find plenty), Sky Sports from NOW TV costs £33.99 a month.

What we don't know yet is whether or not NOW TV prices will stay the same or if they intend to charge more for any reason, especially as I suspect the streams from them will finally be available in 1080p and for the first time ever there will be the ability to record. We also don't know if you will be able to use passes you have bought from wherever you like or if you have to buy the passes through BT to use them.

Not long to wait to find out the answers, or that it has been delayed... 🤣
