UK Apple TV owners can now enjoy an expanded lineup, as home entertainment provider Sky has added to its Apple TV offerings with its expanded NOW TV channel offering the broadcaster’s Entertainment Month Pass and its Sky Movies Month Pass.
The Entertainment Month Pass for NOW TV brings the latest television programming from 13 pay TV channels, including Boardwalk Empire and The Leftovers, for £4.99 (US$8.19) monthly. The Movies Month Pass is for movie buffs, offering streaming access to more than 800 blockbuster Hollywood films for £9.99 (US$16.39) a month after a 30-day free trial. UK customers also will be able to access the £9.99 (US$16.39) Sky Sports Day Pass for one-day access to six different Sky Sports channels.
Apple has been steadily adding to the content available on its set top box, while also expanding the capabilities of the device. The past few weeks have seen Apple roll out both a Beats Music channel, and a FXNOW offering, as well as an iOS inspired redesign offering support for iOS 8 features such as Family Sharing and iCloud Photo support.
