NOW TV is Sky’s most significant strategic move since broadband
NOW TV is Sky’s answer to the rise of on-demand streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime. You can watch Sky channels live with NOW TV on a whole host of devices; via the browser on your computer or apps on Apple or Android phones/tablets and various games consoles.
Additionally NOW TV offer their own set-top box (essentially a re-branded Roku box) and will be launching their next generation box in August to provide customers with “an even faster and smoother experience.” Their new box will include an Ethernet port to support a wired as well as wireless connection and a processor which is claimed to be five times faster.
How to watch Sky Sports from anywhere in the world…
UK VPN and Proxy Servers from Liberty Shield are technically compatible with Sky Sports. Existing Sky Sports customers can use our UK IP address services to access their SkyGo account (or ask for a shot of friends/family member’ login details for Sky Sports) from anywhere in the world.
Another option to watch Sky Sports live is with Day, Week or Month Passes for NOW TV, where you can watch on multiple devices including computers, tablets, smart tv and set-top live streaming boxes such as Apple TV, Roku and NOW TV’s own box.
If you try watch Sky Sports in English-speaking countries such as USA,Ireland, Australia, Canada, Spain, France, Canary Islands, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Qatar, New Zealand, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, or Dubai you will get a Geo block error. To bypass this and watch all content for all you need is a a Proxy, VPN or VPN Router to overcome location restrictions that would otherwise block you from watching Sky, NOW TV and all other UK TV services.
With a VPN Router you can connect to a separate WIFI zone in your home for the country you want and connect all your devices to it so they get an IP address in that country.
