Sky Sports News HQ has landed on the Now TV Box via an app that brings you all the latest sports news in one place.
However, the app is only available if you have a monthly entertainment or movies Now TV pass, or you sign up to the company’s Sky Sports Day Pass or Sky Sports Week Pass.
Sky Sports News HQ was launched in August to coincide with the new football season and brings a new schedule, upgraded studio, dedicated social media coverage, redesigned apps and new programmes to avid sports fans across the country.
See how the Now TV Box compares to Apple TV, Chromecast and RokuGidon Katz, director of Now TV, said: “Sky Sports News HQ is always right at the heart of the latest breaking sports news and the new app on the Now TV Box means sports fans can now get even more from their Now TV passes.”
The announcement couldn’t come at a better time for sports fans. All the latest gossip from deadline transfer day on Monday will be available on the app up to and beyond 11PM when the gavel will fall and all transfers are final.
Those who have signed up to the Sky Sports Day Pass or the new Sky Sports Week Pass will also be able to access Sky Sports News HQ up to 30 days after their pass is activated meaning even if you don’t have access to the Sky Sports package, you’ll still be able to keep up to date with the latest news from the pitch.
The Now TV Box features a whole range of apps and for £9.99. Some of the more popular apps on the service include iPlayer, 4oD, ITV Player and Demand 5 for all your catch up needs, plus YouTube, Facebook and Spotify.
