It's the introduction within the NOW TV app entertainment genre that's new, previously it was it's own standalone app. It would be interesting to see whether the availability is the same within the NOW TV app as was with the standalone product. I can't currently test this as I'm signed up to entertainment for now.

Sky News isn't attached to a particular pass - as long as you have A pass of any kind, then you can watch it.


Ah ok, a similar arrangement as with Sky Sports News on Now TV devices.

Sky News is working on the Chromecast via the NOW TV app, so if you had problems accessing it, try again.

Sky Sports Red Button streams confirmed as coming soon to NOW TV. Arrival dates being dependent on device type.


Can I watch Bonus Streams and use other Red Button or interactive services with NOW TV?
If you've got a Sky Sports Month Pass and one of the devices listed below, you can access Bonus Streams for selected sports events, including additional EFL matches and F1 Race Control.

YouView box
PS4
Xbox One
Supported LG or Samsung Smart TV.
When a Bonus Stream is available, you'll find the option at the bottom of your NOW TV app homepage.

Keep in mindYou can't watch Bonus Streams with a Sky Sports Day, Week or Mobile Month Pass.

Bonus Streams will be coming to the NOW TV Smart Stick and Boxes (except the white NOW TV Box) later this year.

Other interactive services
If you've got a NOW TV Smart Box with Freeview, you can use Red Button and interactive services on live BBC channels. Just hit the red button on your NOW TV remote to get started. (If your NOW TV remote doesn’t have a red button, just use the star (*) button to access interactive services through your NOW TV Smart Box instead.)

What about NOW TV through Windows?

Good news, although interesting that they've gone for other devices first instead of implementing them on the NOW TV devices first.

As a triallist I shouldn't perhaps say this, but maybe that's just as well, considering the status of a couple of these I'm currently engaged in. (Nothing further to say!)

BT had promised earlier this year that Sky Sports red button content would be coming to their Youview platform in "Spring 2020", so glad to know the launch date hasn't slipped too much given current events.

Though ironically, Sky are no longer able to show EFL matches on the red button for the rest of the season, so it's a feature that will see little use.

Anyone know when the next red button event actually is? Austrian GP I'm guessing?

Hopefully, BT will implement it as linear (recordable) channels. I'm not sure they actually have capability to run a red button service with hidden streams... their own certainly doesn't!

BT Sport is now available to NOW TV customers via a standalone App. Looking good too.

I've got a Sky Sports Pass to look at the additional 50fps streams and my goodness, it really does make all the difference to Sky Sports F1.

I'm tempted to buy a BT Sport Monthly Pass from BT (Now TV don't sell them) to see how it looks on the 4K Box.

Giving the Arminia Bielefeld - Dynamo Dresden match a try on it. Not quite up to the BT Sport on Apple TV standard, there appears to be some very fine graining visible, however to most this will be very acceptable.

Bremen - Bayern on BTS Ultimate in 4K is superb via NOW TV tonight.
