Watching NOW TV on Windows

Want to watch NOW TV on your Windows PC, laptop or tablet? No problem – you'll just need to download our NOW TV Player. It’s really simple and only takes a few minutes.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to watch NOW TV on Windows smartphones. But don’t worry – there are loads of other devices you can watch on.

How to install the NOW TV Player

Step 1:

To trigger the Player download, you’ll need to choose something to watch. Head over to the NOW TV site, find a showmoviesporting event or kids’ show, and hit play.

Help tipDon’t want to watch anything right now? Just pick something at random to start the download – it doesn’t matter what.

(Don’t have an account yet? You’ll just need to start a free trial or buy a Pass first.)

You’ll then be prompted to download the Player.

Next time you watch...

The next time you go to watch something on the NOW TV site, your computer should remember you’ve already installed the NOW TV Player and start playing straight away. If it doesn’t, and you see this screen again, just click I’ve already got this to continue.

Next time you watch, if you see the download screen again click 'I've already got this'.
