(If your NOW TV remote doesn’t have a red button, just use the star (*) button to access interactive services through your NOW TV Smart Box instead.)
Yes, you can. To watch the Sky Sports channels in full HD, you'll need to upgrade to NOW TV Boost. It costs just £3 a month, and for that you get:
- All Sky Sports channels in 1080p with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound
- 6 channels – Sky Sports Main Event, Premier League, F1, Football, Cricket and Golf – at 50 frames per second (except on LG TV and Xbox One)
- An extra device, so 3 people in your household can watch at the same time.
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 it to update by signing out of the NOW TV app and signing back in again. You'll then be able to enjoy Sky Sports in full HD.
NOW TV Boost will renew automatically each month (unless you cancel it) as long as you’ve got an active monthly membership. But if you’ve only got a Sky Sports Day (or Week) Pass on your account, your NOW TV Boost will only run for one month, and won’t auto-renew – so you don’t need to remember to cancel it.
Keep in mindYou'll need a compatible device and an internet speed of at least 12Mbps to stream in 1080p. NOW TV Boost isn't available with the Sky Sports Mobile Month Pass. Find out more about NOW TV Boost
