That's not a problem. You don’t need Sky to use the NOW TV Pass – it's separate, and allows you to watch some Sky movies, shows and sport without having a Sky contract. You can watch NOW TV on loads of devices including PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones, as well as games consoles. Find out more at
You need to sign up with your NOW TV Entertainment Pass code first. When you've done that, a pop-up will appear where you can enter your NOW TV Kids Pass code.
This is just our standard trial offer and doesn't apply to your prize – please disregard it. Once your voucher has been applied, this wording will automatically update. If you can see the voucher is applied, continue to sign up by following the onscreen instructions. If you're not sure, you can start again and create your account from the beginning.
Your voucher code will only become used and invalid after you enter and submit your payment card details. If you start creating an account and you're interrupted before submitting your payment details, your code will still be valid.
There are a few reasons why a code may be invalid:
  • You can only have one of each of the three types of NOW TV Pass – Sky Cinema, Entertainment and Kids – per account.
  • Each code is valid up to and including 31 October 2016. If you’re trying to apply a voucher after this date, you’ll see an invalid code message.
  • Lastly, if the code has already been used, you won’t be able to use it again.
This means you’ve already created an account with NOW TV, or a Sky service such as Sky Go, using the email address you provided.

You can still use this email address for your NOW TV account – just sign in using your existing Sky iD username and password. Or you can use another email address to create your NOW TV account.

You might also see this message if you started to create a NOW TV account with this email address, but didn’t complete all the steps. If so, it’s easy to finish setting up your account and claim your prize.

When your pass ends, the entertainment will keep on rolling unless you cancel. It's easy to cancel your pass:

Step 1:

Sign in to your account by going to My Account, which you’ll find in the top right-hand corner of the screen.

Step 2:

Go to My Passes and click on the grey Cancel button under the type of pass you don’t want to pay for.

You can do this anytime – you'll still be able to enjoy the rest of your offer. And if you change your mind, you can come back whenever you want.

Grab your offer by 31 October 2016. You won't be able to use your code after this date.
