    NOW TV - Anyone Help ? 12th Mar 18 at 9:18 PM
    I have the opportunity to acquire a Now TV box NEW with a 4 month free Sky cinema Pass for a few quid.

    I have read some reviews and see that people say its not that good and very difficult to cancel so I am a bit apprehensive?

    I've never had anything for example Sky or otherwise like this before so unless I become addicted I plan to only use it for the 4 month "free" period.

    Has anyone got NowTV ? Or would recommend it?

    Thanks in advance

    You login to your Now account via a pc, choose My Account then Your passes, click cancel on Your Movies, might be told you get x amount of films for x amount a month and theres a button for cancel/still cancel and boom its cancelled.

    As to what these complaints are, maybe they are from the uneducated generation.

    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    Oh Lovely thank you for your reply, I am very grateful.
    I am quite excited to be honest - was unwanted gift to a friend so they are practically giving it away to me :-)

    Really appreciate the reply.
    Thank you.

    Agree, it's easy to cancel through the online account. Enjoy your free months, just diary to cancel before it expires - they won't remind you, just start charging you!

    With Now TV you can cancel immediately after sign-up, and the pass still remains active until its original expiration date. You can always change you mind later - it is very flexible in that respect.

    If you end up cancelling because you don't think it is VFM, have a look for Black Friday deals, which have been pretty good for the past couple of years. (They offered 12 months Entertainment and Movies for 99 in 2017, which is about 8/mth).

    That's what I do never had any issues with cancellation. New passes if required are usually available elsewhere cheaper or with a another box.
