Picture not described

If you’re a sports fan without cable, you know how difficult it can be to keep up with your favourite competitions. You can either find a pub to watch select events or look for poor-quality streams online, which have the tendency to stop working just when things get interesting.

With SKY Sport Now, you can watch all of SKY’s sports channels live via the Internet on your preferred device, so you never miss a minute of the action ever again.

What is SKY Sport Now?

Formally known as FAN PASS, SKY Sport Now is an online platform that enables you to stream 12 SKY Sport and ESPN channels live via the Internet. Users can tune in with computers or download the app on compatible devices. You can purchase a week or monthly pass or make a 12–month commitment to pay a lower monthly fee.

Additionally, SKY Sport Now offers select pay-per-view events which are available to purchase separately. You can also catch up on a selection of SKY Sport highlights from some of the latest games on all passes. Replays aren’t available on SKY Sport, but you can scroll back to watch an event that occurred in the past 24 hours.

How much does SKY Sport Now cost?

Depending on how long you want a SKY Sport Now subscription for, you can pay as little as $19.99 for a one-off week pass or $49.99 for one month.

If you want to sign up for 12 months, you’ll pay a reduced price of $39.99 per month.

The month and 12-month subscriptions automatically roll over until you decide to cancel. Each month is 31 days, so if you sign up for 12 months you’ll get 370 days of SKY Sport Now.

Pay-per-view events are an additional cost.
