Sky News HD

Sky News HD has appeared on ch 385 and you don't need the entertainment pass to view it.

Re: Sky News HD

You need to have the NOW TV Entertainment Pass to watch it.

Re: Sky News HD

@RIC9380 

Just checkeed, and confirmed that I cannot get Sky News HD on 385, or in SD on 313 either. I do not have a NowTV Entertainment pass registered with BT.

I didn't get any short teaser view either, so I don't know how @Andys1980 is able to get it if they haven't subscribed?

Re: Sky News HD

What @Andys1980 means is that it does not matter which pack you get from BT, only that you have a NowTV subscription of some kind from them.  I myself have the "Big Sport" pack, and am able to watch Sky News HD perfectly fine.

Re: Sky News HD

Yes me too (and I'll be sticking to it for as long as I can!).
Yep, I just tried channel 385 earlier and the message said I needed to set it up by subscribing to a NOW TV package.
If I want to watch $ky News I can do so in SD on channel 233.

Re: Sky News HD

If it's anything like the regular NowTV, you need to have a valid pass of any variety to view sky news. I think the same applies with Sky Sports News as well

Re: Sky News HD

@david1982 The Now TV (app) on the Youview box "has" the live  Sky News channel . For several months it seemed to default to a "coming soon" message but I believe that it is now being streamed.
