NOW TV is a division of the Sky group that runs across Europe, with operations in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain and Italy. It offers subscription-based television via the internet (similar to Netflix) and a video-on-demand service. NOW TV has also branched out to broadband and phone services, and it was one of the first to offer contract-free broadband in the UK.
NOW TV offers several different broadband packages at different speeds. These are known as Brilliant Broadband, Fab Fibre and Super Fibre. All of these can be purchased as part of a 12-month deal, or for a slightly higher price tag you can get them on a rolling monthly basis.
NOW TV’s Brilliant Broadband option offers an average speed of 11Mbps with unlimited downloads. Brilliant Broadband is an ADSL package, meaning it makes use of traditional copper wiring rather than high-speed fibre optic cables. This option is best suited to households with lower usage, so if you’re part of a small family who uses the internet mainly for browsing and sending emails this is probably the best choice for you.
Fibre is the latest in internet technology and helps to deliver faster connection speeds. It makes use of new, fibreoptic cables that are able to transmit data at much higher speeds than the traditional copper wiring that is used for phone lines and ADSL broadband connections. This makes for smoother streaming and faster download speeds.
You should think carefully about your internet usage before you sign up for a fibre package. If you’re part of a small household that only uses the internet for social media, checking emails and browsing, then it’s probably not worth the money that it costs to upgrade. However, if you’re in a household with multiple users that take part in high-demand activities like streaming in HD or file sharing, then you’ll probably want to opt for fibre.
NOW TV offers a couple of fibre packages at two different speeds: Fab Fibre and Super Fibre. The majority of UK homes have access to fibre broadband, but you may not be able to access this if you live in a remote area or one with particularly high demand. Make sure to check whether there’s fibre coverage in your area before browsing deals.
With an average download speed of 36 Mbps and unlimited downloads, Fab Fibre offers an upgrade on the speed of the more standard Brilliant Broadband package. If you’re part of a slightly larger family and like to stream in high definition or download large files, then it’s worth considering this slightly more expensive option for the speed upgrade.
Super Fibre is the fastest and most expensive NOW TV internet package, offering speeds of up to 63 Mbps as well as unlimited downloads. If you’re part of a large household or tend to use the internet for high demand activities such as streaming video games or file sharing, then it might be worth opting for this higher speed package.
Yes, it is possible to switch providers if you’ve found a better deal with NOW TV. As the provider wants to encourage you to do this, it has a dedicated customer support team that will deal with your old provider so that you don’t have to. Bear in mind that you may still be subject to early exit fees for your old contract, so it’s important to factor this into your price comparison.
Yes, you can. NOW TV offers a range of phone options that can be added to your broadband package, and line rental comes as part of the monthly contract price. You’ll have a choice of three different phone options:
Pay as you use: This is subject to standard call rates and comes with no inclusive calls
Evening and Weekends: You’ll get free landline calls on the evenings (between 7pm and 7am) during the week and all day on the weekend
Anytime calls: NOW TV’s most inclusive phone package allows you to make free landline calls at any time of the day
Yes, you can. NOW TV was originally set up as an online streaming service, and this can be easily combined with your broadband package. You’ll have to choose which TV passes you want access to, with options including a Sky Cinema pass, Sky Sports pass and a kids’ pass with several channels to keep little ones entertained. Bear in mind that the cost of these can add up, so make sure to choose carefully.
Currently NOW TV does not offer any mobile phone services, so you’ll have to look to other providers if you want to combine mobile and broadband.
Yes, NOW TV was one of the first internet providers in the UK to offer a ‘no-contract’ broadband service. Remember that this isn’t strictly a no-contract service, it just means that you renew on a monthly basis and can be cancelled with no early exit fees. These contracts come for a slightly higher price than your standard 12-month contracts.
If you’re looking for extra flexibility with your broadband package then a no-contract deal could be right for you. However, you should consider carefully before signing up as they will end up costing you more than fixed contracts. If you’re planning on moving soon or are living in a temporary situation then it’ll probably be cheaper for you to go no contract than to pay hefty early exit fees.
The latest NOW TV broadband router came out in 2017 and is known as the NOW TV Hub 2. If you’re having any issues with installation, you can find a detailed set-up guide on NOW TV’s website.
This is a dual-band router, meaning there are two frequencies, at 2.4GHz and 5GHz. The advantage of this is that you can reduce the demand on your internet service by connecting different devices to different frequencies. It’s best to use the 5GHz frequency for high demand activities like streaming or file sharing, while 2.4GHz is suitable for browsing and mobile devices.
The NOW TV Hub 2 also has two 1GB Lan ports, allowing you to plug in and establish a local network between different laptops or devices.
If you’re wondering whether you can cancel your NOW TV broadband then the answer is yes, but it usually comes at a cost. If you’re signed up to one of NOW TV’s no contract home broadband deals then you’ll be able to duck out of the contract without paying any hefty cancellation fees.
However, for NOW TV’s 12-month broadband contracts, you’ll be subject to early exit fees if you decide to cancel before this term is up. The amount you’ll have to pay will depend on how much of your contract is left and which broadband plan you’re signed up for. Contact NOW TV directly to find out how much you’ll have to pay for early exit.
In this case, it’s best to get in touch with NOW TV well in advance of your move to ensure that your service is ready for your move in date. NOW TV recommends letting them know at least two weeks before if you want to have things up and running for your arrival. You’ll also have to check whether your service plan is available in your new area, as some fibre packages may not be available in certain areas of the country.
Yes, you do. If you don’t currently have a landline in your home then you’ll have to speak to NOW TV and ask them to arrange an engineer visit. This is a requirement even if you don’t plan on using your landline to make calls.
There is no additional fee for line rental when you sign up with NOW TV. Technically you are paying for this, but it’s bundled in with the monthly price of your plan, so you won’t have to factor in any additional costs when selecting this.
