now-tvSky’s online streaming service Now TV is now available on PCs, laptops and tablet devices that run Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 operating system, taking the total number of devices supported to 60.

The arrival of Now TV on Windows 8.1 gives customers another way to watch Sky’s main channels, including 13 entertainment channels, seven Sky Sports channels and the latest films on Sky Movies. Now TV offers a choice of Entertainment, Movies and Sports passes. The app can be found in the Windows Store to download.

Now TV allows customers to register up to four devices for the service, and watch on two devices at the same time – so from today one of the devices can be a Windows 8.1 PC, laptop or tablet.

In the ‘small print’, Sky does point out that “at launch, the Windows 8.1 Now TV app will not include some features when compared to other supported Now TV devices”, but does not elaborate any further.

Gidon Katz, Director of Now TV, said: “We’re excited to launch on Windows 8.1, giving customers yet another platform to watch Now TV this Christmas, whether that’s watching the latest Christmas movies like Disney’s Frozen, festive favourites like Elf and Home Alone, or starting a new Box Set such as the complete series of Mad Men.”
