Now TV customers FURIOUS over £30 extra charge to watch Premier League football | The Sun

FOOTBALL fans are being urged to check their TV is up to date if they want to continue watching Premier League games.

Now TV will not be available for older Samsung smart TVs with inbuilt internet access from September 5.

Customers will have to order a £30 Amazon Fire TV stick, which plugs into the side of the television and streams using wi-fi, to have access.

A Now TV spokesman said: “We continually review all devices that house our app to ensure they support its full functionality.

"On this occasion, we have discontinued several older TV models, which no longer support key accessibility functions due to app improvements."

The Sky streaming service reduced its annual sports membership from £39.99 per month to £25 per month ahead of football season.
