Sky broadband and NOW TV
Sky offers a combined broadband and TV
streaming service that includes a 12 month NOW TV Entertainment

Q: "How much should I expect to pay for a
A: It depends on what sort of services you're
looking to get, but you should be able to get a combined deal with
fibre broadband and digital TV for around £35 a month including

of around £20 for the first 6 months of the contract, rising to
around £25 a month after the initial period.
Q: "I don't want line rental, can I get
broadband and TV without it?"
A: Yes, if Virgin Media is available in your
