NOW TV added to incentives for Sky broadband packages

  • Thursday, September 26, 2013 12:00 PM

Sky has added a new element to its broadband offers for those signing up to their broadband and telephone service. There is the option for those that do not take the satellite TV service to have either free NOW TV Sky Sports Passes or a few months of Sky Movies at half price.

The full set of offers from Sky are in our provider listing. The ADSL2+ based services get the choice of 2 free Sky Sports Day Passes, or 4 months half price Sky Movies (£4.49 per month), if you have fibre available in your area and order a fibre product the offer improves to 3 Sports Day Passes and six months of half price Sky Movies. This is in addition to the reduced price offers and a £25 M&S voucher.

In other Sky news, the operator is set to increase its voice line rental to £15.40 a month from 1st December, and while it does not list a line rental saver product, if you are a customer it is worth a call to customer services to see if they will offer a reduced line rental for paying 12 months in advance.


It does list Upfront Line Rental in the small print like the others do.

Yes, there is an Upfront Line Rental option. I've used it for the last 3 years. It was £119.40 back in June 2013. It's always been a bit tricky to find the offer on the website, but it is there somewhere!

If Sky line rental saver still the same (unchanged) but not happy about BT line rental saver gone up from £129 to £141.

Why do we always find out here about price hikes and sky never tell us themselves? I dont use the phoneline so I'm not paying more for something I don't even use.

And shame on BT - if it's gone up and more expensive than the competition it's not really a line saver is it.

ALso no ides why people bother with sky sports passes at all when you can watch them all online for free.

@pcoventry76 - is that legal streams available for free? If not then people might prefer the passes to accessing illegal streams of content

@pcoventry76 sky sent out letters about 2 month ago with all the price rises so hardly them not telling any one

Legality does not equal morality.

Your email states that 'The days of satellite dishes and TV aerials are limited'. So are you saying that something I can get for free is outdated? Isn't that like ASDA asking £7 for a flu jab I can get for free on the NHS?
