    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 ?

    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?

    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.

    In what way is it pants? I've already gone for it now but interested to hear thoughts. I may get the Apple music free trial as well to compare the two.


    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.

    NOW TV deal
    Don't know if this is only in my local Tesco or not but they had NOW tv boxes with 4 month movie passes for £5!! I presume it's because they'll be getting in the new Smart boxes.

    I bought two. One for the spare room and the other for the passes alone. Maybe I should have taken a couple more ... ah well!

    Why, you would be buying passes and a box from Tesco not NowTV, just add the pass to an existing account.

    Sky Sports News on Now TV
    Hi, Looking to get shot of Sky and get a Now TV box with entertainment pass instead. Only thing is I'd like to get Sky Sports News, but donít want to sign up for a full Sports pass.

    Can I get it via the entertainment pass or is there an alternative avoiding the £34 a month? Thanks.

    It's available via an app on a Now TV Box, at no additional charge provided that you have an active Now TV Cinema, Entertainment, Kids or Sports Month Pass.

    If you buy a Sky Sports Day or Week Pass, this also includes 30 days access to Sky Sports News via the same app.
