What’s on NOW TV Sports | October 2017

By Nathaniel Dalby - Tue 3rd Oct 2017 Features

NOW TV allows you to tune into the most essential sports action with the Sky Sports Pass, completely contract-free.

With daily, weekly and monthly passes available, users can keep up  all their favourite sports throughout the calendar or just tune in for a big matchday. Sky Sports has a year-round sports calendar, packed with exclusive coverage of the biggest events. From Premier League football and F1 to the latest cricket and golf, the NOW TV Sky Sports Pass is your gateway to all the essential sports. Here’s the best of what’s to come this month.

Liverpool v Manchester United (14th October)

As the Premier League really starts to hot up, fans can look forward to some of its biggest games being shown exclusively on Sky Sports. One of the biggest ties in English football history is Liverpool v Manchester United, with the game pitting 2 of the country’s most successful clubs and most passionate fanbases against one another.

Man U have had a very strong start to the season, with the team still unbeaten alongside noisy neighbours Man City. With City recently putting a stop to reigning champions Chelsea, United will be eager to get all 3 points here in order to keep up. After yet another international break, this is an ideal game to welcome the EPL back.

Atlanta Falcons v New England Patriots (23rd October)

October is a stacked month for NFL fans, with a huge amount of games shown on Sky Sports for those who love to keep track of the biggest sport in the US. The tie between Atlanta and New England is a highlight of the month, with fans also able to check out the BY Giants v Denver Broncos and the Washington Redskins v Philadelphia Eagles as part of the lineup.

NFL is growing more and more in the UK with every passing season, and Sky Sports is the best place to watch if you're a fan of the sport or are looking to getting into it. Take a NOW TV Sky Sports Month Pass to catch all of October’s action.

Leeds United v Sheffield United (27th October)

What better way to round off the end of the month than with 2 of the Championship’s fiercest rivals going head-to-head. Both teams have had decent starts to the season (despite Leeds’ recent poor form), with both looking for promotion by the time May rolls around. 

Leeds have already suffered a drubbing from Sheffield United’s rivals Sheffield Wednesday, so this will be another tough test for the team that’s desperate to get a foot in the lucrative Premier League door. Watch this and other Football League matches via the NOW TV Sky Sports Pass.

US Grand Prix (22nd October)

With the Malaysia race seeing Red Bull’s Max Verstappen take home a well-deserved win and Lewis Hamilton coming second, there seems to be no end to the twists and turns this F1 season. Hamilton now looks to be pulling away from Vettel in the Championship race, with the driver’s controversial attitude and racing style costing him points aplenty this season. 

The US Grand Prix is always a treat for F1 fans, with the purpose-built Circuit of the Americas in Austin proving to be an exciting and interesting track to watch. Catch all the day’s action with a NOW TV Sky Sports Day Pass or watch the whole weekend, including polling and practices, with a Week Pass.
