What’s on NOW TV Sports | August 2017

By Nathaniel Dalby - Mon 7th Aug 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.

Arsenal v Leicester City (August 11th)

The Premier League returns with a Friday night clash between Arsenal and Leicester City. The upcoming season promises to be one of the most competitive for a long time, with at least 4 clubs eyeing the title and more attempting a top 10 spot. Leicester managed to survive after a poor previous season where they failed to retain their league title (to the surprise of no one) and Arsenal will also be looking to have a better showing after failing to finish in the top 4 for the first time ever. 

Friday Night football is just one of the days you can catch the Premier League on NOW TV Sky Sports, with Saturday fixtures, Super Sunday and Monday Night Football featuring matches throughout the season. A week pass ensures that you’ll have access to the entire weekend’s matches to kick off what looks to be an exciting season of football. 

Belgian Grand Prix (August 27th)

As the 2017 F1 season reaches its midway point, there’s still all to race for as Sebastian Vettel heads up the championship table with Lewis Hamilton nipping at his heels in second. Some disappointing results for Hamilton means that he’ll have to work hard to catch up with Vettel, but it’s certainly not impossible. This rivalry has reached its peak this season, with the drivers trading barbs on and off the track, so it’ll be interesting to see how this season continues in Belgium.

Sky Sports F1 is one of the 9 dedicated Sky Sports channels you can access via the NOW TV Sky Sports app. A one day pass is ideal for those who want to catch a grand prix, as it means you only pay for the content you enjoy rather than spending money for a full month. For F1 fans, NOW TV the best way to catch all the races. 

England v West Indies Test Series - 1st Test (August 17th - 21st)

The packed summer of cricket continues with England’s first test against the West Indies. Following a sometimes impressive performance against South Africa, England will be looking to prove they can still dominate matches in the 1st test of this series. The Sky Sports NOW TV Pass allows you to catch all of the action with a Week Pass, with Sky Sports Cricket providing exclusive coverage as well as the best analysis from cricket veterans.

Solheim Cup (August 17th - 20th)

Sky Sports Golf is Sky’s dedicated golf channel, allowing you to catch the best of the golfing world exclusively. This August, the Solheim Cup takes place between the US and Europe, marking one of the big highlights on the ladies’ golf calendar. 

Both Europe and the United States have already confirmed their teams, with England’s Charley Hull, Georgia Hull, Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Mel Reid all making the European team. The event promises to continue an exciting year of golf coverage on Sky Sports Golf, with NOW TV viewers able to tune in via the Week Pass.
