Stream the best Sky channels with NOW TV for less than £5 a month

You can now watch Mad Men, Game of Thrones and that Karl Pilkington show with no need for a Sky package or satellite dish. You just need broadband fast enough for streaming and a NOW TV subscription...

If you're tired of missing the most talked-about telly because you haven't got Sky TV, there could be happier times ahead as the best of Sky is now available to stream online.

Whether it's Game of Thrones or Mad Men you crave, new Entertainment Month Pass for NOW TV, Sky's movie and TV streaming platform, will let you watch Sky Atlantic shows at any time on-demand - and for less than a fiver each month.

For just £4.99 there's unlimited access to Sky Atlantic, Sky 1, Sky Living, Sky Arts 1, Discovery, MTV, Comedy Central, Gold, Disney and Fox. It's considerably cheaper than a Sky TV package, but you'll only be able to watch if you have a suitable broadband set-up.

However, you won't need a Sky box or satellite dish and there's no lengthy contract or hidden costs to worry about.

Gidon Katz, from NOW TV, said: "Millions of people can now go online to watch some of the best entertainment channels, including Sky 1, Sky Atlantic and Comedy Central.

"NOW TV offers pay-as-you-go access to brand new episodes of home-grown British shows and the biggest and best US series for anyone with broadband."

As well as new episodes of current shows, such as Mad Men, Game of Thrones and Karl Pilkington: The Moaning of Life, you'll also be able to stream entire 'box sets' of older favourites including The Wire and An Idiot Abroad.

The Entertainment Month Pass is available from today on the NOW TV box, PlayStation 3, Roku, PCs and Macs, but other gadgets, like the iPhone and iPad, Android smartphones and Xbox 360 will be added to the list in the coming weeks and months.

NOW TV already offers pay-as-you-go access to Sky Sports and Sky Movies, through the Sky Movies Month Pass and Sky Sports Day Pass, costing £8.99 and £9.99 respectively.

If you want to watch on the big screen, the NOW TV box plugs into your telly and broadband connection for straightforward streaming in the living room.

It's available on the high street, from shops including Currys, John Lewis and Argos, for a one-off payment of £9.99 - but you'll still need to pay the monthly subscription.

Whichever you choose, you'll only be able to watch online and video streaming uses lots of data - so you'll need to make sure you have a generous usage limit, or, if you'll be taking full advantage of what NOW TV has to offer, an unlimited broadband package.
