Catch all the action in HD with NOW Boost

Add NOW Boost to get all Sky Sports channels in full HD, plus:

  • Watch all Sky Sports channels at 50 frames per second
  • Get awesome audio with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound
  • Stream on 3 devices at the same time, instead of just 1
  • Watch ad-free.

Yes, you can. To watch in Full HD, you'll need to upgrade to NOW Boost. It costs just €5 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
  • Ad-free streaming.

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 your favourite 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.

Keep in mindYou'll need a compatible device and an internet speed of at least 12Mbps to stream in 1080p. NOW Boost isn't available with the Sports Mobile Membership. Find out more about NOW Boost

The Sports Mobile Membership gives you 5 channels:

  • Sky Sports Premier League
  • Sky Sports Action
  • Sky Sports Mix
  • Sky Sports Racing
  • Sky Sports News.

Keep in mindAs Carabao Cup matches are shown on Sky Sports Football, you won't be able to watch with a Sports Mobile Membership.
