Yes, selected matches will be shown on Bonus Streams. When a Bonus Stream is available, you'll find it on the relevant sports page in the NOW app - for example, rugby Bonus Streams will be on the Rugby page. You may also find Bonus Streams under New & Trending on the NOW Homepage and under Sport Top Picks on the NOW Sports Homepage.
Don't worry if you can't see any Bonus Streams right now – they'll appear automatically by the time the event starts.
Keep in mindYou can't watch Bonus Streams with a Sports Day or Mobile Membership.
Yes, selected catch up content will be available on demand on the Rugby League or Rugby Union pages in the NOW app.
On demand content isn’t available with a Mobile Membership. You’ll need a NOW Sports Day or Month Membership to watch rugby matches on demand.

Yes, you can. To watch the Sky Sports channels in full HD, you'll need to upgrade to NOW Boost. It costs just £6 a month, and for that you get:
- All Sky Sports channels in 1080p with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound
- Selected Bonus Streams in full 1080p HD (where the video feed allows for higher stream quality. Bonus Streams are available for Sports Month Members only. Dolby 5.1 surround sound not available)
- All Sky Sports channels at 50 frames per second (except on LG TV and Xbox One & Series X/S)
- Extra devices, so 3 people in your household can watch at the same time
- Plus you can stream on-demand sports ad-free (as well as ad-free shows and movies if you've got Cinema or Entertainment Membership). Find out more
Help tipIf you buy Boost via our website, your account could take up to 4 hours to reflect the fact that you've added it. To get around this, you can trigger it to update by signing out of the NOW app and signing back in again. You'll then be able to enjoy Sky Sports in full HD.
NOW 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 Sports Day Membership on your account, your Boost will only run for one month, and won’t auto-renew – so you don’t need to remember to cancel it (unless you're subscribing via a third party, like Apple).
Good to knowYou'll need a compatible device and an internet speed of at least 12Mbps to stream in 1080p. NOW Boost isn't available with Sports Mobile Membership. Find out more about NOW Boost

- Sky Sports Premier League
- Sky Sports Action
