    Now TV's Entertainment Pass will increase by 1 a month - just before the end of the new Game of Thrones series - but you might be able to beat the rise...

    Easiest way to beat this is buy a box including a pass and then use the pass and ditch the box (I sell it on eBay). http://www.argos.co.uk/product/4146678 is 14.99 for 3 months entertainment, so 5 a month and a box I don't need.

    Now TV gave me an offer of 1.00 for a month and that included TV and cinema pass. I then wanted to cancel and they offered me 4 month at 3.49 for the TV pass. To me seemed a good offer.

    What do you get with the entertainment pass that is better than what's on Freeview?

    For starters, you get Sky One and Sky Atlantic, something you don't get on Freesat or Freeview.

    I currently have an Enterainment Pass. I got it specifically to watch Westworld when that was showing earlier in the year, a series I really enjoyed.

    Nat Geo is worth watching, but some of the other channels I just don't bother with.

    To be honest, for me, I may as well now cancel as I rarely watch stuff on NowTV save for shows like the the new Hawaii 5'o.

    Had NowTV for 12 months. Never paid full price. Always managed to get a discount when attempting to cancel. I just say I'm skint when they ask why i want to leave.
    Been paying 3.49 monthly for last 3 months - expires August - will try again and see what they offer. They might stick two fingers up next time .

    I had it free for 2 months (competition win). Cancelled it last week and before it would let me put the cancellation through, it offered me a "second chance offer" of 3.49 for 4 months. I cancelled anyway as I don't need it anymore, was just using it to watch box sets for free, but there is never any need for anyone to pay full price.
