Now TV’s monthly price for a Sky Movies Pass has dropped from £15/month to £8.99/month.
The on-demand movies service, available online and on iOS, Android, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and YouView, has fallen in price following the launch of Now TV Box bundle deals in stores.
While expensive compared to the likes of Netflix and Lovefilm Instant, Now TV’s edge on the competition is that it’s got access to Hollywood titles a year before they’re available on other platforms.

Now TV also offers access to Sky Sports on a daily basis at £9.99 for 24 hours.
