Cinema Membership is £9.99 a month. You can cancel at any time.
If you're on a minimum-term plan and you ask to cancel during your minimum term, your cancellation will only take effect when your plan ends.
NOW Cinema Membership gives you over 1000 movies to watch on demand, and access to all the Sky Cinema channels: Sky Cinema Select, Sci Fi & Horror, Premiere, Hits, Action, Thriller, Greats, Family, Drama, Comedy and Animation.
We add 3-4 premieres each week, spread over the weekend, with the Friday premiere being the main movie of the week.
We're constantly updating and adding to our on-demand movies. You can browse the movies we currently have available on our catalogue.
The Paramount+ app won't be available on NOW. However, as part of Sky Cinema’s continued relationship with Paramount, NOW Cinema members will be able to stream most of Paramount’s latest blockbusters, as well as continuing to enjoy Paramount’s library of on demand movies at no extra cost.
All you need to get started is:
- One of the devices listed here
- Minimum 2.5Mbps broadband download speed
- A NOW account
If you've got an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet, you can download selected movies (excluding 20th Century Fox and Disney movies) to your device and watch them anywhere.
Each movie can be downloaded twice, and will be saved on your device for up to 30 days. Once you start watching, you've got 48 hours during which you can watch it as many times as you like. Find out more about downloading movies
If you prefer to watch without ads, you can add NOW Boost which lets you stream on-demand movies ad-free. Find out more about Boost
If you've got NOW Boost, you can watch all the live movie channels and most on-demand movies in 1080p with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.
To boost your viewing experience, just head to My Account and NOW Membership to start a free trial. At the end of your trial, Boost will roll on for just £5 a month (increasing to £6pm from 28 February). Find out more about Boost
Help tipIf you buy Boost via our website, your account could take up to 4 hours to reflect the fact that you've added it. To get around this, you can trigger your account to update by signing out of the NOW app and signing back in again.
You might be asked for your Parental PIN when watching the live Sky Cinema channels between 5.30am and 10pm, depending on the movie or show you’re watching, and the device you’re watching on.
If you haven't set up a PIN yet, it's quick and easy to do. Just head to the Settings & PINs section of My Account. If you've got kids in your household and you want to restrict what on-demand movies they can watch with your Cinema Membership, you can turn your PIN ON and set an age rating here, too.
Keep in mindYou’ll need to enter your Parental PIN for some live movies even if you don’t have any age restrictions set up.
Watching on YouView?
You don't need a NOW PIN – just enter your YouView PIN. Don't know it? Try the default PIN of 1234, or head to the YouView site for help.
Your first monthly payment will be taken on the day you buy your membership (or if you have a free trial, 7 days after you start your trial). Your next payment will be taken on the same day the following month, or sometimes (if you also added another membership at the same time) a day or two later – in which case you get any extra days for free.

If you've also got another type of membership, your Cinema Membership will appear as a separate payment on your statement.
If you're a BT customer, when you add the Cinema Membership as a bolt-on the cost will be added to your monthly BT bill. To check what you'll pay and when, log in to My BT and look for Billing & Usage.
