They won't, they know people pay a premium to have this on their Sky box e.g 4k/UHD, recording etc. The reason this offer exists is that it's a slightly worse product but without the monthly commitment.

They win no matter which way you choose to consume

I cancelled my pass which was due to expire on 22nd Jan. It was only today I could activate the voucher

Tx that means I do need to wait until Feb 11... I've cancelled the existing passes so they won't auto renew.

So what? I watch all matches on IPTV, I know there is a delay of up to 2 or 3 mins at times so my phone goes into do not disturb while watching, easy and the delay makes no difference.

Exactly. If you're watching what is said on Twitter then you are not watching the match. I'm happy that NOWTV works really well and I don't have to close a million ads. That is worth the minute delay. Nice to switch off every now and then.

It’s only the losers worried about cashing out their bets that have a concern over the time delay. For everyone else, if you put the phone away, it is irrelevant...

Delighted with Now TV. I've never paid full price for the sports packs, I never have any problems with picture quality cos I've good broadband and have a wired connection to the now tv box. Plus the bonus of no contract or the hassle of streams dying or lagging at the most inopportune moments, like the dodgy IPTV services I've tried in the past.

Agreed. I've a chromecast and it works perfectly. As soon as I had created my initial account I was streaming straight away.

I've got less than 3mb speed broadband. IPTV doesn't work for me. Now TV works brilliantly. It may dip in quality for a few seconds during a match but that's about it.

Not quite the same pass either, as I've never had Extra (but it was a Pigsback offer on Sky Sports and since auto-renewed at 39eur for a month as I had forgot to cancel ). I'll wait now until Friday when the existing pass has expired itself, and then try again.
And to confirm, it works today, after my old sub expired.

Also, you need to use the link provided in the PDF sent to you! I just ignored the PDF and copied the code, to enter on Redeem section in My Passes, which wouldn't work. Had to go and actually read what it said and click on the redemption link provided!

Do you have to wait a while for an additional mail?
I registered but just got a registration mail, nothing with a 10% discount code.
