Best pay-per-view way to access Ryder Cup for the weekend?

    We have a Sky box, but we no longer subscribe.

    So, we only have a handful of channels and Netflix.

    I’d like to watch the Ryder this weekend.

    What’s the best way to get it?

    Now TV has been recommended to me. Good? Or any other recommendations?

    €10 a month through the NowTV website, you can then cancel at month end. You should be a able to run it from whatever you are running Netflix from.

    I signed up to Nowtv.

    Perfect on iPhone and iPad.

    If it’s as good on tv for the Ryder cup, it will have been a bargain for a tenner.

    The huge streaming demand of the Ryder cup will be a real test of the quality of the service.

    Yes I think you can have either 3 or 4 devices connected, might be a restriction of 2 simultaneos connections, quality is pretty much bufferless. I regularly sign up and cancel, works cheaper than having permanent subscription.

    Been watching all day.

    Superb reception; at least as good as Netflix.

    A bargain at a tenner.

    Just went to cancel my Now TV sub after the introductory month.

    It would have been €39 p/m from the 22nd.

    They offered me a further 3 months at €13.50 per month. Took it for the Ashes coverage over Christmas and New Year.

    Entirely my own fault, but when I signed to Now tv for an additional three months, I didn’t check that Sky sports would have the Ashes. They don’t. Had I known then…

    I love watching golf, but the ads are unbearable.

    Trying to watch Spurs v Liverpool right now. Constant dropouts and re-buffering. Though my connection is good - flawless with Netflix, for example, admittedly not a live sports event.

    I will not be renewing my Now tv sports pack when it’s done next month.
