I suppose it's called "Now TV" for a reason.

If it offered a catch-up service, I reckon they'd have to rebrand it as "Now and Then TV".

No. Now TV is Sky's on demand, streaming service. Other than sport, everything else is geared about downloading content as you want to watch it. You don't have any ability to record, just stream. No Internet connection, then basically, no service.

This is where their sport offering completely jars with the rest of the service.

Maybe they should rename it "Not TV"?

Over the xmas period there were some NOWTV sales, and I picked up two 3-month Sports vouchers @ £49 each attached to dongles, so that gives me 6 months of viewing for £100 as long as I cancel each one after activation.

I think I worked out that if the first four races are on Sky One or are on CH4 in the afternoon, I will only need an additional one week pass at the end of the season.

I'm getting shut of Sky after 16 years of full package in May this year, my main worry is how i'm going to watch the extra bits and pieces that Sky F1 do, I tend to watch the races live but watch Paddock and interviews at varying points throughout the following week (3 young kids out pay to watching it all day on a Sunday!).

My mistake was accepting a SKY deal 2 years ago that took off my legacy F1 entitlement, so £64 a month will become £110 in May and with a new house on the way its just too much now.

does anyone happen to know how the "boost" add on (that gives you 1080p HD + 5.1 sound) with the 24 pass thing?

Looks like the HD pass is only available as a monthly add on (£3 a month) - but curious how this works if I'm only doing 24 hour passes. Do I have to pay every month for the Boost pack, even if I'm only watching a few races a year via the £9.99 PAYG option?

Thanks, Ace
