Sky have released a NOW TV app for the PlayStation 4 brining its pay TV channels to the games console. NOW TV is a subscription free, pay as you go service and with the app you can get content from Sky Movies, Sky Sports and Sky TV.
You don’t have to subscribe to get the content, you just pay for what you want to watch. NOW TV is available for the Xbox 360 and was announced as an app for the Xbox One during its launch but hasn’t turned up yet. I wonder what has happened to it? I checked on the app list at Xbox.com and it still says coming soon.
From today NOW TV becomes available to all PlayStation®4 (PS4™) owners as the internet streaming service from Sky arrives on the console. The service has been available on Playstation®3 since May 2013.
