How to get a Sky Cinema Pass


Already got a NOW TV account?

If you’ve already got a NOW TV account, just go to My Account, and then Passes & vouchers (you'll need to sign in, if you haven't already). Then click on Start free trial or Buy next to the Sky Cinema Pass.

New to NOW TV?

You’ll need to create an account before getting your Pass. Follow these steps:

  • ​Go to and TV Passes
  • Select a free trial for the Sky Cinema Pass and any other Passes you may want to add to your basket
  • Complete your details to grab your Pass and start watching.

Are you a BT customer?

If you pay for your Passes through BT and you don't have a Sky Cinema Pass as part of your core TV package, it's easy to add one as a bolt-on. Just head to Passes & vouchers and select Start free trial (or Buy Pass if you've already had a trial) next to the Sky Cinema Pass. The cost will be added to your monthly BT bill.

As a new member, you get a 7 day free trial and then it's £11.99 a month. You can cancel at any time.

The Sky Cinema Pass gives you over 1000 movies to watch on demand, and access to 11 Sky Cinema channels: Sky Cinema Select, Sci Fi & Horror, Premiere, Hits, Action, Thriller, Greats, Family, Drama, Comedy and Animation.

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

To take advantage of the Sky Cinema Pass you’ll need:

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. (You might need to update your NOW TV app to make sure you've got the latest version). 

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've got NOW TV 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 Passes & vouchers to start a free trial. At the end of your trial, NOW TV Boost will roll on for just £3 a month. Find out more about NOW TV Boost

Help tipIf you buy NOW TV Boost via our website, your account could take up to 4 hours to reflect the fact that you've added Boost. To get around this, you can trigger your account to update by signing out of the NOW TV 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 on your Sky Cinema Pass, you can turn your PIN ON and set an age rating here, too.

Watching on YouView?

You don't need a NOW TV 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 Pass. Your next payment will be taken on the same day the following month, or sometimes (if you also buy a different Pass 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 one of our other NOW TV Passes, your Sky Cinema Pass will appear as a separate payment on your statement.

If you're a BT customer, when you add the Sky Cinema Pass 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.

Got NOW TV Combo?

If you're a NOW TV Combo customer, when you buy a new Pass we don’t take any upfront payment. It’ll be added to your next monthly bill instead.
