All about our Sports Passes
Whatever your sporting preferences, we've got you covered with up to 11 action-packed channels on our Sky Sports Passes – and our Sports Extra Passes serving up 6 more.
Each sports package has Day or Month options, and for Sky Sports there's also a mobile-only Pass if you just want to watch on your smartphone.
Sky Sports Passes
With a Sky Sports Day or Month Pass you get all 11 Sky Sports channels, while the Mobile Month Pass just gives you access to 5 (Premier League, NFL, Racing, Arena and News) on one smartphone only.
And on selected devices, you can now relive your favourite sporting moments or catch up on the ones you missed with over 2500 hours of on-demand sports content, ranging from match highlights to documentaries. Sports on demand is available to watch on PC and Mac, and to watch and download on smartphones and tablets, and will be coming to TV devices soon.

The coronavirus situation is changing rapidly all the time, and we're monitoring it closely. Read the latest here.
A Sky Sports Pass gives you access to huge live Premier League matches throughout the season, as well as action from the Sky Bet EFL Championship, SPFL and Carabao Cup.
If you've only got a Sky Sports Mobile Pass, you won't be able to watch any matches on the Football or Main Event channels. So before you choose which Sky Sports Pass to buy, it's a good idea to check which channels will be showing upcoming games here.
With a Sports Extra Pass you can watch Premier League and FA Cup matches, as well as Champions League and Europa League games (excluding Red Button matches). There's also the Scottish FA Cup, Italian Serie A, Dutch Eredivisie and Chinese Super League.
Keep in mindMatches on the Red Button aren't available with any of the Sports Passes.
You might see onscreen messages about using the Red Button or interactive services when watching the sports channels. Unfortunately these services aren’t available with NOW TV.
Month Passes will start right away, and auto-renew each month.
Day Passes can be started at any time that suits you. When you buy your Pass, it'll automatically be saved for you for up to a year. And it'll start automatically whenever you start watching a sports channel. (It doesn't matter what time of day you activate your Pass – you'll still get the full 24 hours).
Your Pass will run continuously once you start it. You won’t be able to pause your Pass.
You can register a maximum of 6 devices on your account.
You can watch on up to 2 devices at any one time, unless you've only got a Sky Sports Mobile Month Pass, in which case you can only watch on 1 smartphone at a time.
Head over to the Manage devices area of My Account (you might need to sign in), where you'll be able to see whether you've got any device swaps available this month. If you have, you can simply remove a device, then start watching your Sky Sports Mobile Month Pass on your smartphone and it'll automatically be added here.
If you've used all your device swaps for this month, you'll need to get in touch and we can remove a device for you so you can get stuck into your Sky Sports Mobile Month Pass right away.
No, you can only watch your Sky Sports Mobile Month Pass on your smartphone. If you want a slice of the sporting action on your big screen, you'll need to grab yourself a Sky Sports Day or Month Pass.
No, you can only watch the Sky Sports Mobile Month Pass on a supported Android or iOS smartphone. To watch on a tablet, you'll need to have a Sky Sports Day or Month Pass.
You can have a Sky Sports Pass and a Sports Extra Pass at the same time. And you can have a Sky Sports Mobile Month Pass alongside a Day or Month Pass.
- If you've already got a Sky Sports Month Pass, you won't be able to buy a Sky Sports Day Pass.

The one-off payment will be taken out on the day you buy your Sports Pass.

Month and Mobile Month Passes
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.
