Sky TV’s streaming service Now TV has revealed a new bundle that will enable customers to access Sky channels, broadband and phone packages without a contract.
Called Now TV Combo, Sky says it has created the “UK’s first ever contract-free triple play bundle”, which will enable customers to access Freeview TV as well as up to 35 Sky channels – including the firm’s movies and sports offerings – at a monthly rate alongside broadband and phone packages that will start at £9.99 a month plus line rental and a broadband set-up fee.
A new Now TV Smart Box is included as part of the set-up, providing access to live TV as well as on-demand content, with the service becoming available in July.
Gidon Katz, Now TV’s managing director, said: “Now TV has got something for everyone – TV they love to watch, when they want and on their own terms. It’s why we’re not stopping there.
“We know people want the freedom and control of a no-strings relationship when it comes to choosing their TV, broadband and call package, so the Now TV Combo is the product and service they deserve.”
Sky is also offering a range of monthly passes for its pay TV channels – including cinema passes that start at £12.99 and Sky Sports passes that begin at £36.99 a month.
The broadcaster launched Now TV in 2012 as a way for consumers to ‘pay-as-they-watch’ some of its channels and on-demand services, in an effort to compete with the rise of on-demand and streaming services such as Netflix and Blinkbox.
As with existing Now TV bundles, users of the new Combo service will be able to tweak or cancel their packages at any time.
