Sky's Now TV gets a £32 monthly sports subscription

If you want to watch Sky Sports without a satellite TV subscription, Now TV is one of your best options. In addition to its daily and weekly passes, the broadcaster has now launched a monthly streaming subscription for £31.99. As usual, that gives you access to all seven Sky Sports channels: Sky Sports 1-5, Sky Sports F1 and Sky Sports News HQ. The package arrives just a few weeks before the new Premier League season and in the midst of England's feisty Ashes Test cricket series against Australia. The broadcaster faces tough competition from BT though, which is still pushing BT Sport 1 as a free perk for broadband customers. Now that it's snatched the exclusive rights to European football, however, its pricing model is evolving to look a little more like Sky's. No matter which you way tackle it, acquiring both (legally) is still going to cost you a serious sum each month.
