    Now TV entertainment pass 19th May 17 at 2:30 PM
    I have a new contract with Vodafone and have a choice between 12m subscription to now tv or spotify. I am leaning towards the latter as now tv doesn't look to be anything special v what I already have (Netflix, sky and freeview) - anyone used it and able to offer their thoughts?

    I have all of them, if you enjoy music then go for Spotify {if you have or get the Amazon Echo or dot then you can connect the two}

    I think you'll feel more value by going for Spotify.

    NowTV is just Sky(ish) over the net.

    A lot cheaper when you pick up the cheap deals can do entertainment and movies for <£100.

    You don't have the ability to listen while off-line, but you can access Spotify free (supported by adverts, which are more frequent at peak times). The quality of sound from subscription is claimed to be better, but that won't show if your speakers aren't up to standard.

    Any ideas why Vodafone dropped ( or the other way round ) Netflix as part of the entertainment offer withn certain price plans ?

    Depends on what you want. NowTV entertainment pass is good if you watch a lot of tv. It has the channels not available elsewhere and box sets hard to find elsewhere. On the other hand if you listen to lots of music Spotify is the way to go.

    It's worth noting that on broadband unlimited is advised for both and I would further advise fibre.

    Don't watch an awful lot of TV so felt that freeview, Netflix and Sky is enough therefore went for the Spotify Premium. It is free, after all.


    Ah yes, I have unlimited and would never, ever consider getting capped broadband.
