You can also subscribe to the following viewing add-on:
NOW Boost - If you have a relevant membership and a registered compatible device, this allows you access to a selection of on-demand content and live channel streams in full HD format with Dolby surround sound and ad-free video on-demand content, as well as allowing you to use three of the compatible devices registered on your account at once, instead of the usual one.
NOW Entertainment Membership
NOW Cinema Membership
NOW Sports Month Membership
NOW Sports Mobile Membership

Each of these is a “monthly membership”.
1.3 The NOW Sports Day Membership is a one-off purchase and does not automatically renew.
2. HOW DO I SIGN UP TO NOW?
2.1 Anyone aged 18 or over living in the UK (including the Isle of Man and Channel Islands) can sign up to use NOW.
3. USING NOW
3.1 Accessing the Content and Services
3.1.1 You may only access the content and services in the UK (including the Channel Islands and Isle of Man).
3.1.3 The time frames in which you may watch some parts of the content, access some parts of the services or use the features will be limited to certain periods (“access periods”). For example, 24 continuous hours, a month or a minimum term measured from the time you activate your membership or start watching any content included in it (there is no need to activate a monthly membership you purchase online or via an app, you’ll get access as soon as you complete your sign-up and make any required payment). You’ll continue to get access to monthly memberships and viewing add-ons (including after any minimum term), month after month, until you cancel the relevant membership or viewing add-on where you are permitted to do so.
3.1.4 Stopping, pausing or re-starting content won’t extend the access period for watching it. You can track when your current memberships will end or renew within the account section of the nowtv.com website (currently the ‘My Membership’ area of the ‘My Account’ section). If a membership does not renew automatically once the current relevant access period ends, the content will no longer be available to you. The applicable access period will be stated on the NOW website at the time you purchase content.
3.1.5 You must activate a NOW Sports Day Membership within a year of purchase otherwise it will be automatically deleted.
3.1.6 If you’re unable to watch content which you’ve paid for, for reasons beyond your control (like a fault with your line, or your broadband speed isn’t sufficient, or due to our fault), let us know within 28 days of paying for that content so we can run a test on your line and we may give you a refund for the relevant amount.
3.1.7 Some examples of things you mustn't do include, but are not limited to:
(a) Copy, rent, sell, reproduce, publish, republish, post, broadcast, frame, transmit the services or content (or any part of them), or make them available to the public, or authorise or assist anyone else to do so, except as permitted under the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988, as amended from time to time ("Act"). The exceptions in the Act are limited and you must make sure you are legally entitled to rely on one of them;
(b) Make any direct or indirect charge for watching or using any part of the services or content;
(c) Show any of the content or any part of the service in public to an audience, even if no direct or indirect charge is made;
(d) Access or use the service via a virtual private network (VPN), proxy server or any other system or technology that circumvents, or is designed to circumvent, the accurate geolocation of your device(s)or the content protection, digital rights management or other associated systems used by NOW to protect the content and/or service; or
(e) Access or use the services or content for any improper or unlawful purpose or allow anyone else to do so.
3.2 What devices can I watch on?
3.2.1 There's a full list of compatible devices on the NOW website. The services and content available via each device may differ. We continually review device support and as new operating systems appear we may stop supporting older versions. This means that to continue using the service you may need to update the software on your device from time to time. You should ensure that any device you use to access the service is compatible with the service.
3.2.2 You can register up to six compatible devices on your account. Of the six you register, only one device can be used at any one time unless you have purchased NOW Boost in which case you will be able to use three devices at once.
3.2.3 You must ensure that your devices meet the minimum hardware, systems and software requirements, as set out on the NOW website and updated by us from time to time. Occasionally, device manufacturers or the provider of the device operating system may impose changes that limit or restrict your use of NOW on that device. If this happens, we'll try to notify you of these changes in advance, but as we have no control over these manufacturers and providers it may not always be possible to do so.
3.2.4 For security reasons and to protect the rights of our content partners NOW may not be supported on a device where limitations included within the device operating system have been removed or tampered with (this is sometimes called 'jailbreaking').
3.3 What network connection do I need to watch NOW?
3.3.1 You need broadband or a mobile network to stream content from NOW. You'll need a fast enough line and an adequate broadband data allowance. To stream via broadband, we recommend a minimum 2.5Mbps connection or a minimum 12Mbps connection to stream selected content in 1080p HD if you have NOW Boost. Remember that your streaming rates depend on network load in the home and could be affected by other users using the broadband connection at the same time. If you're using a mobile network, you'll need a connection speed of at least 450Kbps (or higher - depending on what you want to watch and the device you're using).
3.3.2 Obviously, you'll be responsible for all costs charged by your mobile network and broadband providers and your internet service provider. Remember that streaming audio-visual content can use up a lot of data, so if your broadband package doesn't give you unlimited downloads you need to check that you have an adequate monthly data allowance.
3.4.1 You are responsible for the security and proper use of your NOW log-in details (username and password) and, if you have NOW Boost, all activities of members of your household using your account (“additional users”) including purchases. You must not disclose your NOW log-in details to anyone else, including any additional users. If you know or suspect that your password has been compromised, or you suspect or become aware of any other breach of security, you must tell us immediately, and you must also ensure that any such username and password is changed as soon as possible. If we believe that there's been, or is likely to be, a breach of security we may suspend usernames or passwords and require that they're changed, we may also restrict your use of all or any part of the service.
3.4.2 Any charges incurred on your NOW account, including by additional users, are your responsibility and will be debited from your credit/debit card using the details you provided when signing up. You must not let anyone outside your household access the service using your account or login details.

4. HOW MUCH DOES NOW COST AND WHEN DO I PAY?
4.1 All our prices are set out on the NOW website at nowtv.com. There's more information about how we can change our prices at the end of this paragraph.
4.2 With NOW, there's no sign-up fee. The amount and when you pay will depend on the memberships or viewing add-on you choose and how you want to use them (per day, monthly or with a minimum term):
4.2.1 If you take a NOW monthly membership, there's a monthly subscription fee which you must pay in advance for each month (unless we tell you otherwise). You'll normally be charged on the same date every month for each monthly membership, but there are some exceptions (see here for details); and
4.2.2 If you take a NOW Sports Day Membership you just need to pay each time you purchase a new membership.
4.3 You will need to pay for any monthly membership you choose by one-off or recurring debit/credit card payment (as applicable), either direct from your card provider or through any online payment platform we tell you we will accept. We do not accept payment by Direct Debit.
4.4 Unless we tell you otherwise, your debit/credit card will be debited on the day you sign up for any membership or viewing add-on.
4.5 Our prices include VAT and any applicable sales tax. We're not obliged to honour advertised prices that are the result of obvious errors and which you could reasonably be expected to know are mispricing. If we reimburse you for any reason (other than when you exercise your right to cancel a NOW Sports Day Membership within 14 days from when you first join provided you haven’t used it) we may credit your NOW account, or we may reimburse your payment card (in our discretion). Your legal rights aren’t affected.
4.6 We may use a third-party payment services provider (“PSP”) to collect payments on our behalf. During the sign-up process, you'll need to provide the information needed by us or our PSP to collect payments. You authorise us or our PSP to collect payments from you. If a payment fails, we or our PSP will try again in a few days. If we, or our PSP, are not able to process a payment, you won’t be able to use/access the part of the service that the failed payment relates to.
4.8 If you join NOW through a free trial offer, a payment will be authorised by your bank, but no payment will be taken by us. You should be aware however that this may affect your available balance or credit limit.
How your payments can change
4.9 How we can change the amount you pay for any membership or viewing add-on will depend on which memberships or viewing add-on you choose. All our prices are set out on the NOW website and may change from time to time.
4.9.1 NOW Sports Day Membership
We can change the price at any time and the new price will apply to all purchases made from the date of price change. We will publish details of any new price on the NOW website.
4.9.2 NOW monthly memberships that automatically renew each month (including after a minimum term)
(a) We can change the price of a membership or viewing add-on that automatically renews each month at any time, but where we increase the price, we'll notify you at least 30 days before the start of the affected access period (unless paragraph 4.9.2(d) applies), so you'll have time to cancel your membership or viewing add-on before the change takes place.
(b) Examples of when we may do this include: our cost of providing the services will increase (such as when we have to pay third parties more for their content); we are introducing new programmes, contentand services; we are changing the way we structure or provide our services; we are investing in improving our customer support; to introduce new charges where the cost of running our service increases; or other costs associated with running our services increase.
(c) In addition, we provide our services on an ongoing basis and we cannot foresee what may change in the future. This means we may increase our prices for reasons other than those set out above.
(d) In some cases, it might not be possible or practical to give you advance notice; for example, if an urgent price change is required because of a change in the law or a request or requirement from a regulatory authority (including any changes in the rate of value added tax). In such circumstances we will give you as much notice as we consider practical.
4.9.3 NOW monthly memberships with a minimum term
We will not change the price you pay each month during a minimum term. Please see paragraph 4.9.2 above for details of how the price might change after a minimum term.
5. CHANGES TO THE NOW SERVICE, CONTENT AND FUNCTIONALITY
5.1 The content available with any membership you choose will change regularly – that means on any given day, week or month, new or different movies, entertainment, channels etc. may become available (and other movies, entertainment shows, channels etc. will stop being available).
5.3 If we withdraw a membership or viewing add-on during a minimum term we’ll move you to the nearest equivalent membership or viewing add-on available, offering the same or similar content, features or functionality. If this happens, the price you pay will stay the same until the end of the minimum term.
5.4 It won’t be practical for us to notify you in advance of all content changes and instead you should keep checking the NOW website or the electronic planner guide for details of what’s available.
5.5 Some of the content we provide is supplied by third parties. The availability of such content is outside our control and we may be unable to make certain programmes available via the service(including live channels) or we may be unable to show certain content on certain devices. We'll use our reasonable efforts to notify you in advance (via the NOW website, the electronic planner guide or otherwise) about device restrictions and the unavailability of certain content. In addition, some features of the channels available via the service may differ from the features available with the same channels broadcast on other platforms. For example, features such as teletext and the red button may be unavailable on the service.
5.7 In relation to any service, membership or viewing add-on you’ve paid for but which hasn’t yet expired (e.g. if you’re a NOW Cinema Membership subscriber and you're in the middle of an access period), we'll try to make sure that changes to our services won't adversely affect you during the relevant access period i.e. during the access period that you've already paid for (unless it’s for reasons beyond our control). This may not always be possible if you have taken a membership with a minimum term but see paragraph 8.6 for your rights if we make changes that are likely to significantly impact you in a negative way during the minimum term. If changes are likely to significantly affect you in a negative way during future access periods, we'll notify you of any such changes at least 30 days before the start of the relevant access period in which the changes will take effect – so you can cancel the relevant membership or viewing add-on before the next access period starts.
5.8 In some cases it might not be possible or practical to give you advance notice: for example, if an urgent change is required for security reasons, or due to a request or demand or threat of action from a regulatory authority or other third party, or for any other reason which is beyond our reasonable control. In such circumstances we will give you as much notice as we consider practical and we may, in our sole discretion, issue you with a refund or part refund for the remainder of the access period which you've already paid for unless you continue to use the services or relevant part of the services.
5.9 After we've notified you of a change to the service, if you have the right to cancel your monthly membership but you choose not to before any change takes place, we'll take your continued use of the service as your acceptance of the changes we’ve made.
6.1.1 We change, alter, improve or add to any of our services;
6.1.2 We intend to change the way we structure our services;
6.1.3 We change the way we provide our services (for example, we develop new technology to provide you with a better experience);
6.1.4 To help improve the security and operation of our technical infrastructure (for example, to prevent misuse of our digital content platform);
6.1.5 We reorganise the way we structure or run our business;
6.1.6 For valid legal or regulatory reasons; or
7. HOW WE WILL CONTACT YOU
7.2 Notifications will be deemed to have been delivered on the day they're sent, provided we haven't received a failed delivery notice (in which case we'll post a notice on the NOW website (which you should check regularly) and they'll be deemed sent the day after they appear on the NOW website). We'll send notices to you using the contact details you've given us, so please make sure you've provided us with accurate contact details and keep us up to date if they change.
8. ENDING YOUR MEMBERSHIP
8.2 You can ask us to cancel a monthly membership at any time before your next access period is due to start. After you cancel, and unless we tell you otherwise, you'll continue to have access to the relevant membership until the end of the access period you've paid for, and in the case of a membership with a minimum term are yet to pay for, but it won't be automatically renewed after that. Where you take a membership with a minimum term, subject to paragraphs 8.6 and 8.7, this means you will continue to pay for and have access to the membership for the remainder of the minimum term. You can of course re-subscribe to any membership at a later point.
8.3 To end any monthly membership, follow the instructions set out on the NOW website. Once you end a membership, you won't be charged for any access period that hasn't yet started. Remember, once your current access period ends, you won't be able to watch anything you haven't finished (or started) watching. If you end a membership, you can always re-activate it on your account at a later date.
8.4 If you have NOW Boost but no longer have a membership that includes content on your account, we will automatically cancel NOW Boost at the end of the current NOW Boost access period unless you pay for it via a third party (such as Apple) where it will continue to renew each month until you cancel it.
8.6 If you take a membership with a minimum term, you may end this agreement and the affected membership during the minimum term (without paying any early termination charges), within 30 days of us telling you that we are going to:
8.6.1 reduce the overall level of service of your chosen membership under paragraph 5.2 and you reasonably consider that you would be materially disadvantaged by the reduction compared to the level of service on the first day of your minimum term; or
9. NOW’S RIGHT TO CANCEL OUR AGREEMENT AND YOUR MEMBERSHIPS
9.1 We can cancel our agreement with you (or any part of it) at any time unless you are in a minimum term(subject to paragraphs 9.4 and 9.5).
9.2 Except where paragraphs 9.4 and 9.5 apply:
9.2.1 If we cancel our agreement with you (or any part of it) after you’ve paid a subscription fee to use the service, you’ll have access to the part of the service to which the subscription fee relates for the remainder of your access period, but when it ends, your subscription won’t be automatically renewed.
9.2.2 we will not end your membership or this agreement during a minimum term if we continue to generally make the relevant service available or, under paragraph 5.3, a nearest equivalent membership. We may end this agreement and/or your membership at any other time by giving you notice to expire after the end of your minimum term.
9.4 In any event, we may immediately suspend or restrict your use of all or any part of the services and/or content, and cancel any membership and/or viewing add-on (including during a minimum term), without refunding or compensating you and will immediately suspend or restrict your access to any part of the service to which a subscription fee you have paid relates if:
9.4.1 You fail to make a payment you owe us or if your payment method fails;
9.4.3 We suspect or believe that you've committed or may be committing any fraudulent activity against us or against any other person or organisation through your or their use of the service or content or we have reasonable grounds to suspect any other unauthorised activity;
9.4.4 You have acted towards our staff or agents in a way which we reasonably consider to be inappropriate or unacceptable and sufficiently serious to justify restricting or ending your use of our service; or
9.4.5 It's not reasonably avoidable due to technical or operational reasons which are beyond our reasonable control.
9.5 We may also suspend, restrict or end your agreement and any membership and/or viewing add-on without notice if we are required to by law or to comply with an order, instruction or request of any government body, emergency service organisation or other competent authority, or if we no longer have the authority or ability to provide the service.
10.1 By signing up to use NOW, and using any part of the services, you agree that you'll be responsible for your actions and omissions and for the actions and omissions of your additional users. The services may present links to third party websites, ads or offers not owned or controlled by us – we're not responsible for these sites, ads or offers.

10.5 We are not permitted to exclude our liability for certain matters, for example we cannot exclude our liability to you for providing digital content that is not of satisfactory quality or fit for purpose or that does not match its description. This clause shall not affect any such liability that we have to you.
