Sky to offer football on pay-per-view

First published in Saints News

Sky is to offer football fans the chance to watch live Barclays Premier League matches on a pay-per-view basis via their internet TV service from the spring.

The broadcaster will give unlimited access to all six of its sports channels via 'Now TV' for a 24-hour period for £9.99, which will include taking in Formula One grand prix, England cricket matches or Masters golf. Previously, Sky Sports subscriptions operated on a monthly basis.

BSkyB chief executive Jeremy Darroch said: "We think that a day pass is going to be attractive.

"We think it will work well alongside Sky Sports and will complement (subscription packages) well, it a way to extend Sky Movies, Sky Sports and later entertainment channels to an entirely new set of customers."

NOW TV is available on a range of internet-connected devices as from personal computers and laptops to smartphones and some games consoles.

Sky's Now TV service leaves a lot to be desired. It has serous issues streaming with Silverlight and certain browsers. Sky Go on the iPad is ok but it's obv on a smaller screen.
