Sky is world famous for providing top notch entertainment. They power NowTV, an online provision for streaming movies and TV shows directly into your home. You can even watch movies on up to 4 devices using a single account, switching between them effortlessly. There are a few packages to choose from through Now TV, but the one which is probably going to be of most interest are SkyMovies Month Pass. This allows you to watch over 800 movies, with more being added every month. If you're interested in combining movie and TV packages then we recommend looking at the website's bundles, which will give you more details as to the sorts of combinations you can make and the range of deals available to you. These can offer great value if you’re an avid movie and TV show fan.
If we’re honest we were a bit let down by the number of movies available from NowTV. 800 is fine but it's not particularly competitive, and Sky only add 16 or fewer premier titles per month. A big movie fan could easily watch all of the new titles every month and still be wanting more. Okay maybe we’re being a little over the top, in reality 800 movies is a lot to choose from, it's just not as many as you will find elsewhere. All videos are streamed rather than available for download, so you can’t watch them if you’re offline. This is often standard practice but some sites do allow you to download movies or get a copy on disc. The production quality of the selection of shows and movies is pretty good, you ought to find a lot of critically renowned content, although the choices are a little predictable. There have hardly been any risks taken here, it's all fairly mainstream and there are few surprises. However, if you are looking to watch popular shows at a pretty affordable price then you won’t go far wrong.
Finding a movie is overly simplistic and it would be helpful to have more options and filters to help you to pin down what you're looking for. Once you've found a movie you can read a little about it and view ratings from other users, although the amount of information is a little limited at times. If you look around you’ll find websites that really offer a great deal more information, including interviews and links to external review sites. If you don’t know what to watch next, the website also offers recommendations based on the films you're interested in viewing.
Now TV is a decent system but it is quite underwhelming in terms of its selection of movies and the fact that many of the TV shows are accessed and paid for separately. If you're interested in a TV and movie package that suits your particular preferences then one of the bundles might be worth considering, particularly if you primarily want to see the latest Hollywood releases. The options are there, but they might start to get a bit expensive.
