Hi, I am looking to buy a now tv box.
The other people in my house have a sky subscription for broadband and phone line. I want to buy a now tv box but would need to set up a new sky account as I will be paying for this service separately.
Is it possible to have two separate accounts at the same address? I cannot find a definitive answer anywhere!

Also if I just buy a now tv box for £9.99, and use the free movies trial pass and cancel it straight away will I be able to use it for a month and then still use the catch up stuff such as iplayer and itv player for free afterwards or do you need an active subscription?

Many thanks
Star

    not sure in the 1st question .
    However on 2nd yes the iplayer etc will still work
  • A Sky account for BB and phone are usually separate from a NowTv account. You could/can order now TV when setting up broadband and talk and have it all on one bill but, if you sign up to nowtv via their website https://www.nowtv.com, then there will be no issue at all. Your account will be totally separate and nothing to do with Sky or the current home phone and broadband account.

    You don't need an active Now TV subscription to watch iPlayer etc.

    I wouldn't pay £9.99 for the box, as for £19.99 from Argos you get two months movies or three months entertainment, on top of the free sign up month. So for £10 more than getting the box you can get £20-£21 worth of subscription as well.

    Also you CAN share the one account with both NowTV boxes. ;)
