NOW Sports Membership Q&A: How do I stream Sky Sports? Is it instant? Is there a contract?

What is NOW?

NOW is an instant streaming service offering all 12 Sky Sports channels and access to every single live Sky Sports event*.

It's an app, so customers can sign up and stream instantly across over 60 devices. It offers contract-free memberships, so customers can cancel anytime!

You can choose between a Month or Day Memberships. The latest prices for each Membership option can be found here.

Sounds great! What channels do I get?

Memberships gives you access to:

*Customers cannot access Sky Sports Box Office events via NOW. Only NOW Sports Month members have access to Bonus Streams to watch any live events not on Sky Sports channels

NOW Sports Memberships also give customers access to Sky Sports documentaries and selected replays and highlights on demand within your Membership period.

So, I don't need a smart TV, stick or set-top box to get NOW?

No - you don't need one. You can watch NOW on over 60 different devices, including selected smart TVs and sticks, but also on smartphones, PC or Mac, plus PS4/PS5™, Xbox One & Xbox Series X/S consoles.

Watch online at NOWTV.com or download the app to watch on your smartphone, smart TV or games console.

See our full list of compatible devices.

If I sign up to NOW on one device, can I watch it on another?

Yes - you can sign up on one device and watch on another device of your choice. This sign-in journey varies by platform, but on Smart TVs for instance, you will be given a QR code function to sign in quickly.

However, customers without Boost cannot watch NOW on two devices at the same time.

The match I want to watch starts in 10 minutes, is the Membership instant?

Yes!

What if I am purchasing a Day Membership for a future date - does it have to start right away?

No - it'll begin whenever you activate your membership and end automatically 24 hours later. It can't be paused. Until you start watching, your Sports Day Membership will be available for a year.

Is there a contract involved?

No, NOW offers contract-free Sports Month & Day Memberships, so customers can sign up and cancel anytime.

For your fully flexible Sports Month Membership, you'll still be able to stream until the end of that 30-day viewing period. If you don't cancel, it renews automatically at the end of the 30-day period.

To add Boost to your Day and Month Memberships, head over to the NOW Membership area of My Account and select Start free trial or Add Boost.

What are Bonus Streams?
