The NOW TV hayu Pass gives you access to thousands of episodes of reality TV on demand. Many shows are aired on the very same day that they are shown in the US, so you’ll never be out of the loop with the latest happenings.
All the reality TV goodness you could ever desire is available to you for just £4.99 per month - which you can cancel whenever you choose.
What’s more is that if you are a new member, or a NOW TV member who has never had a hayu Pass, you can take advantage of a free 7 day trial so you can check out the service before you buy.
Episodes of US shows are available on the hayu Pass before the end of the day on which an episode airs in the US. Due to the time difference between the UK and US, this may mean that the show is available on a different date in the UK (but it will still be the same day as the premiere in the US).
As an example, if an episode premieres on the 5 August at 9pm in the US, then the episode will be available in the UK no later than 8am UK time on 6 August. This is because 8am UK time on 6 August is midnight on the 5th August in the US. So the episode will have gone live in the UK before the end of the day in the US.
At present there is a very limited selection of shows that are available in full HD with enhanced sound on the hayu Pass. However, if you have NOW TV Boost, you can still watch on up to 3 devices simultaneously.
You can download episodes to watch at your convenience if you have an Android or Apple device. Note: sometimes you’ll need to update the NOW TV app for this to function properly.
You can download each episode twice, and this will be kept on your device for 30 days. Once you begin watching an episode, you can watch it as many times as you want within the next 48 hours.
You don’t need the quickest connection in the world to enjoy the hayu Pass, but a minimum download speed of 2.5Mbps is recommended for most NOW TV Passes.
