BSkyB has just announced that Now TV, an internet TV service, will be launched tomorrow. The service will compete directly with Netflix and LoveFilm in the UK. Now TV will be available on Macs, PCs, and on select Android devices. More devices will be available in the future including iOS devices as well as video games consoles. Users will be able to select from a catalogue of Sky content which includes nearly 600 films and 11 channels.
The service will set you back £15 a month or there is a pay-per-view option at 99p and £3.49 per film. According to the Guardian, Sky Sports content such as Premier League and Golf will be included later in the year as well as Sky1 and Sky Atlantic. The company plans on attracting customers who do not pay for TV and are looking for a no commitment form of entertainment. Let us know in the comments section below if you’ll be trying out Now TV.
