    Cheapest way to watch sky sports 8th Apr 17 at 10:20 PM
    Hi - wanted to know from fellow viewers, what is the cheapest option to view sky sports package. Now tv had a 50% first month offer but can see it is not there anymore. Thanks

    On your mobile £5 per month for 1 2 and news or £10 for the full package. Not sure about TV.

    Any other cheaper ways to get Sky Sports on TV? I only watch the rugby and Sky has the rights to the Lions tour. I don't want to pay mega-money for just that.

    Now TV is no cheaper for sports unless you only want one event per month.

    I've just taken out Sky Sports.


    I already have Sky & Movies and have a 60% discount on those.


    This discount also applies to the Sky Sports so under £8 per month.


    I'm only planning to keep it a couple of months.


    Are you in a position to negotiate a discount on your normal Sky package (if you have one) then take out Sports?

    Amazon Firestick and some "creative" apps will get you pretty much every channel going in the world.

    A local pub showing the match.

    A friend who has sky sports, offer to bring some refreshments or snacks over.

    Pensioned - the Now TV sports passes are :-
    Sky Sport Day Pass - £6.99
    Sky Sports Week Pass - £10.99
    Sky Sports Month Pass - £33.99


    The cheapest way to get passes I've found, is to buy a new Now TV box when they are on offer with free passes, even if you don't need the box. I think Argos had some on offer last month for under £20 with over £20 worth of free passes. Sell the unneeded box for a £5 and you are quids in. The passes can be used on new or existing accounts, and don't expire until you use them.
    If you are watching the lions tour - work out when the games are and get which pass gives you full coverage for the best price. Last year I watched the F1 races on Sky that weren't live on C4 by combining different passes, plus I had some freebie day passes to use up.

    By my reckoning (based on JJ's fixture list), you could watch all the games with 1 day pass (3rd June), 1 week pass (7th June to 14th June), another week pass (17th June to 24th June), and another week pass (1st July to 8th July) = roughly £40. Might need to double check kick off times.

    I just got Sports added for £6.88 a month on a 31 day rolling contract, can cancel anytime, which I thought was reasonable.
