How to watch NOW TV with a VPN

NOW TV is a subscription service that provides themed passes for on-demand movies, TV shows, and live sporting events. It is provided by Sky Limited, the company behind Sky Sports and Sky Cinema. Depending on which subscription you select, you can watch prestige TV, like HBO’s The Watchmen; new and classic movies, like Scarface; premium kid’s content, like SpongeBob SquarePants; and live Premier League matches.

Proton VPN users can watch both the British and Italian and versions of NOW TV!

How to unblock NOW TV with Proton VPN:

To watch the Italian or UK versions of Now TV, you will need to connect to any Plus server located in your desired country (e.g., to watch the Italian version of Now TV, you need to connect to a Plus server in Italy). Plus servers have a “P” icon next to them in our macOS and Windows apps. They can be found in the “Plus servers” list on our Android and iOS apps. On your Android TV (app currently in beta testing), connecting to a server in either of these countries will automatically connect you to a Plus server if you have the right subscription.

Plus servers are available for Plus and Visionary Plan subscribers. For the fastest and most reliable connection, please connect to the server that is closest to your current location. To find the nearest servers to you, check the full list of our servers.

Proton VPN does not condone the use of our VPN service to bypass copyright regulations.
