Sky's on-demand movie service Now TV launches
Anyway, their new view-on-demand offering, Now TV, is launching on Tuesday, going up against Lovefilm and Netflix. You’ll be able to get it for PC, Mac and Android from then, with iOS, YouView, PS3 and Xbox availability promised later in the year.
Subscription will cost £15 per month (with a 30-day free trial available initially) and Sky say that for that you’ll get access to over 600 movies, including new releases and classics, with up to five new, exclusive Sky Movie premieres each Friday. One-off payments will also be available for consumers of the service, with individual films available for a fee of between 99p and £3.49.
Sky have blabbed that sports and entertainment channels will also be available through Now TV in the not-too-distant future, although weirdly, none of it will be offered in HD, for now anyway.
