LG signs deal with BSkyB for exclusive Now TV on smart HDTVs in UK
LG has signed a deal with broadcaster BSkyB to add <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/290425==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/07/16/now.tv.to.compete.with.netflix.lovefilm.despite.hi gh.prices/" rel='nofollow'>Now TV</a> to its range of <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/290426==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/07/23/curved.television.gains.thx.display.certification. 15000.price.tag/" rel='nofollow'>smart televisions</a> in the United Kingdom. The agreement will bring the Sky-backed streaming service to Internet-connected LG HDTVs in August, with Now TV content being exclusive to the manufacturer's smart TV range for a minimum of 12 months. <br />
<br />
Buyers of new LG smart TVs will have three months of free access to the range of movies on the service, according <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/290427==http://www.engadget.com/2013/07/25/lg-sky-nowtv/" rel='nofollow'>to</a> <em>Engadget</em>, along with three passes that provide 24 hours of access to <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/290424==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/03/19/users.pay.15.for.24.hours.of.access.to.sports.chan nels/" rel='nofollow'>Sky Sports</a> channels. Current LG smart TV, Blu-ray or other smart set-top box owners will be able to download an app for the service, albeit without the free aspect. <br />
<br />
The Now TV movies package, which offers movies shown on the Sky Movies channels on satellite, usually costs &pound;9 ($14) for the first three months then &pound;15 ($23) per month thereafter. The Sports Day Pass usually costs &pound;10 ($15).
