What’s on NOW TV Sports

By Nathaniel Dalby - Fri 9th Jun 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 Sky Sports Pass is your gateway to all the essential sports. Here’s the best of what’s to come this month. 

Scotland v England (June 10th)

The Premier League season might be over, but there’s still plenty of summer football to enjoy on Sky Sports. England visit Scotland for a big World Cup qualifying match, with fans eager to see what Gareth Southgate’s updated squad can do. England are unbeaten so far in qualifying, having won four out of five matches. Rivals Scotland always put up a fight, so the game is set to be closely contested.

England’s game is one of 2 games you can catch on the NOW TV Sky Sports pass on June 10th, with Germany playing an unlucky San Marino straight afterwards on Sky Sports 1. Germany are the current World Cup holders, winning the tournament in 2014, and are generally thought of as one of the world’s best national teams. San Marino will have their work cut out, with the underdogs being comprised of part-time players with a lot of heart.

Canadian Grand Prix (June 11th)

June 11th sees the F1 season head to Montreal, Canada for a race that could determine how the rest of the season could go. With Hamilton’s slip up in Monaco seeing Vettel pull ahead of him in the top position, the Mercedes driver will be hoping to catch up on points in Montreal. Hamilton won the race last year and has a good-track record on the circuit, but if Vettel can pull off another win, it might be too much for him to catch up on.

This F1 season has been a rollercoaster so far, with no one yet sure who will take the championship at the end. Monaco’s slightly dull race was defined by Hamilton’s mess-up and Kimi Raikkonen’s early glimpse at victory. Fans will be hoping that the unpredictability will continue in Montreal.

England v South Africa Twenty20 (June 21st - 25th)

Continuing the exciting summer of Cricket on Sky Sports, The Twenty20 series between England and South Africa kicks off on the 21st of June. The action kicks off at the Ageas Bowl, with England hoping that they can put in a good show against a strong South African side.

This series will see England play 3 Twenty20 matches against South Africa, with the other 2 taking place on the 23rd and 25th of June. NOW TV customers can tune in via the Sky Sports Pass by purchasing a Day Pass or a Week Pass to catch all of the action.

ATP Gerry Weber Open (June 19th - 25th)

The Gerry Weber Open is a tournament that’s entering its 25th year, with this year’s competition set to be more fiercely contested than ever. Coverage on Sky Sports starts on the 19th up until the 25th, with viewers able to catch all the action via a Sky Sports Week Pass on NOW TV.

Famously, the Open has been a chance for the tennis elite to prepare for the summer’s Wimbledon event. However, with a grand prize of nearly €2 million, this is much more than a casual practise session. The players will be playing on a grass pitch much like Wimbledon, so the state of play is very similar to the legendary tournament. The only place tennis fans can watch the action is Sky Sports, so make sure you secure your weekly pass.
