How to get an Entertainment Pass
Already got a NOW TV account?
If you’ve already got a NOW TV account, but you’ve never had an Entertainment Pass, you can easily start a free trial.
Just go to My Account, and then My Passes (you'll need to sign in, if you haven't already). Then just click on START 7 DAY FREE TRIAL next to the Entertainment Pass.
If you’ve had an Entertainment Pass before or you’ve already used your free trial, select BUY instead.

As a new member, you get a 7 day free trial and then it’s €15 a month, or cancel anytime.
You get these live channels: Sky 1, Sky Witness, Sky Atlantic, Sky Comedy, Sky Documentaries, Sky History, Sky Nature, Gold, Sky Crime, Comedy Central, Sky Arts, Fox, MTV, Nat Geo, Discovery Channel and SyFy.
Plus, you get box sets for shows from all of these channels, as well as VICE, Challenge and Pick.
You’ll also find the live Sky News channel in the Entertainment section, although you don’t need a NOW TV Pass to access it.
We’re constantly updating and adding to our catch up shows and box sets.
You can browse our catalogue to see the shows and box sets we currently have available.
To take advantage of the NOW TV Entertainment Pass you'll need:
- One of the devices listed here
- Minimum 2.5Mbps broadband download speed
- A NOW TV account.
You'll need a Parental PIN to watch 3 of the live Entertainment channels (Sky Atlantic, Sky Comedy and Sky Documentaries) between 5.30am and 9pm.
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 shows they can watch on your Entertainment Pass, you can turn your PIN ON and set an age rating here, too.
If you've got an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet, you can download shows 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 show 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 shows
We aim for shows to appear on catch up within 24 hours of first broadcast.
Catch up episodes are usually available for at least 7 days from the date they were first broadcast.
We'll take your first monthly payment 7 days after you sign up for your free trial. Your next payment will be taken on the same day the following month, or sometimes (if you also started a trial of a different Pass at the same time) a day or two later – in which case you get any extra days for free.

If you've also got one of our other NOW TV Passes, your NOW TV Entertainment Pass will appear as a separate payment on your statement.
