Just go to the NOW Membership area of My Account (you'll need to sign in, if you haven't already). Then just click on Start free trial next to the Cinema Membership.

If you’ve had Cinema before or you’ve already used your free trial, select Add membership.

We're constantly updating and adding to our on-demand movies. You can browse the movies we currently have available on our catalogue.

All you need to get started is:

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. 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'll need a Parental PIN to watch any movie on most live Sky Cinema channels (except Family) between 5.30am and 9pm. (If you're watching on 2nd or 3rd gen Apple TV, you'll need it for all live Sky Cinema channels at all times). 

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.

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. Find out how to check your payment date

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.
