Vodafone will cover the cost of replacing a channel that was withdrawn from NOW TV subscribers.
The Discovery Channel, which was removed from NOW subscribers’ set-top boxes earlier this year, will be covered by VODAFONE.
The Discovery Channel is no longer available to subscribers of NOW, formerly NOW TV. The popular documentary channel was included in the Entertainment Membership until recently. However, while Sky, which owns and operates the contract-free streaming service NOW, was able to win a deal to keep Discovery Channel on its Sky Q set-top box, the same could not be said for NOW.
Fortunately, Vodafone, a mobile network, has come to the rescue. For the next six months, all pay-monthly customers on 4G and 5G plans will be able to access Discovery series and movies, according to the carrier. The generous new offer comes in the form of a free Discovery+ subscription, which grants on-demand access to Discovery’s episodes and films, similar to Netflix.
This includes access to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, which will feature 55 live event feeds and 2,000 hours of on-demand content. Despite the fact that Vodafone is paying for the six-month membership, you will not be confined to watching episodes and movies on your smartphone.
With the app, you’ll be able to use your Discovery+ on Sky Q, Fire TV, Apple TV, and other popular set-top boxes, Smart TVs, and games consoles that support streaming services.
You may use the deal right now if you’re a NOW subscriber who’s upset about the recent withdrawal – or even if you’re a NOW subscriber who just wants to watch the latest athletic activity, documentaries, or binge-worthy shows. Customers can sign up for a six-month subscription for free using VeryMe or the Vodafone companion app for iPhone and Android.
Customers will have the option to continue viewing Discovery+ for £4.99 per month once the six-month free trial period ends. Vodafone customers will be able to cancel their subscription for free if they do not want to pay the monthly fee.
“The British summer of sport is going from strength to strength, which is why we’re happy to provide our consumers access to discovery+ Entertainment just in time for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020,” said Vodafone UK consumer director Max Taylor. Customers can also enjoy a wide choice of material other than sports, such as documentaries and boxsets.”
