What if I cancel my Passes?


If you cancel all your Passes, you can still use your NOW TV Box to access most of the extra channels and apps that are available, including catch up channels such as BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub.

Apps on the NOW TV Box


You won’t be able to use the Sky Sports News HQ app without an active Pass.

If you’ve cancelled a Pass and want to watch movies, entertainment, sports or kids shows on your NOW TV Box again, you can restart your Passes easily at any time.

 

Can I still watch on demand movies and shows without a Pass?


You can’t watch NOW TV’s on demand movies and shows or the live channels if you cancel your Passes.
 
However, you can still buy on demand movies through your NOW TV Box using the Sky Store app. With Sky Store you can rent the latest blockbusters, or choose Buy & Keep to receive the DVD in the post.
