Now Tv cost increase


[link to this post]
 
i have had an email saying that now TV entertainment is going up by a quid to £9.99, I think that is me out, I don't watch enough to make it worth nearly a tenner. I don't know if their film channels will increase in price, but I expect they will.

Thanks for the link

It's hardly a rip off if interested in content from Sky, Fox, CC and more.

It's better than £25+ a month and a contract to get a TV service.

My only hope is that they continue to bring new content and would love to see some 4K content come about,

I've been using Sky Q for the past few weeks with Ultra HD + HDR and pretty impressive but I have cancelled during cooling term as I'm moving home and won't be able to have a dish.

17 channels for £10 a month, £13 if including the HD and Screen Boost is pretty good.

I would not go for another sky contract, done that around 12 years back and it lasted 12 months and then I got rid of it, plus I would need a Tv licence.
I agree, now Tv is not a rip off as such, but I do think the cost now is too much for what you get, sure it has plenty of content and while I am not that bothered about 4K, I think they should at leats now have HD as standard without paying extra, but this is how sky works, as far as I know people still have to pay extra for HD on the sky packages unless you go for everything.
I think paying extra to get HD is a rip off, certainly in this day and age.

I have not been using Now Tv that much, there are a couple of things I like watching, but it is not worth keeping for that, at the end of the day there are too many services and sometimes one of them have to go.

Hi Adrian,

You are correct to be honest, its a tad expensive, maybe by about £1-2 a month comparing to Netflix premium cost.

As you say it depends on whats being watching, I've been enjoying content from the new Sky Nature, Documentaries and Comedy channels, and also watch programs on Fox a lot, I've actually found I don't watch much on Netflix anymore but I don't pay for that.

It is now pricey for what they offer and I'd dump it but the wife and grandkids use it so I'm stuck with it. I thought the same about Britbox but as its turning out there is more and more on there I enjoy but its not the best laid out site to be honest.

Who actually pays the standard pricing anyway?

Many seem to either buy cheap passes via the likes of cdkeys or Amazon or wait for offers from Now after cancellation.

Just gone in to cancel myself and it's offered me £5.50 for six months on the entertainment pack.

Your Mileage May Vary of course
