Designed for those who want to stream brilliant content without committing to a contract – whether that’s diving into the drama of Game of Thrones, laughing along with the latest must-see movie or feeling the pressure during a Lions test match. Customers simply sign up, choose a pass and start streaming on whatever device they want.”

NOW TV is available to anyone in Ireland with an internet connection*, and is supported on multiple devices with an intuitive and easy to navigate interface, with recommendations to help you find the best shows, sports and movies to watch.
