    Content wise no difference, but you can'r record on Now, its all about on-demand/streaming.
    Now doesn't have 4k support I believe, and HD is charged extra.
  • As the other two posters stated, content wise is the same but the extra benefit to the NOW membership is its easy to cancel and they send out offers multiple times a year to resubscribe at a lower price, for example, they recently offered me for "Black Friday" £1 a month for 3 months. It has been a long time since I used Sky Cinema directly so I don't know if they now operate the same way.
  • You don't get access to Paramount Plus with NowTV Cinema.
