Top five things on NOW TV this week

Here’s the pick of this week’s sporting action and latest film releases, exclusively on LG Smart TVs…

2012 Indian Grand Prix - Sunday

Sky TV is more accessible that ever with NOW TV, which means you don’t have to miss your live sport or the latest movies. Here’s the pick of this week’s sporting action and latest film releases, only via Smart TV with LG…

Live Formula 1: Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
From 1st Nov, 0845pm. Race 3rd Nov, 1130.
Sky Sports F1, NOW TV
Yes, Seb wrapped up the 2013 world championship with no fewer than three races left to run, which rather relieves the tension surrounding the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. There are still prizes worth fighting elsewhere, though – championship points are lucrative even if the glory’s already been allocated. And Abu Dhabi’s sunset race remains a jewel in the crown of the F1 circuit, so relax and enjoy one of the best-looking races of the season.
Live football: Arsenal v Liverpool
2nd November, 5pm
Sky Sports 1, NOW TV
You can’t beat a top-of-the-table clash, and Arsenal taking on Liverpool this weekend is a lip-smacking prospect. Just four points separate the top six Premier League teams, so the table could swing on the slightest of moments. Arsenal might be top of the league, but Liverpool has averaged three goals per game in its last four matches, so we’re expecting goalmouth action if nothing else. A great one for neutrals.
Sky Movies pass
Zero Dark Thirty
Coming soon
Sky Movies, NOW TV
Tense, provocative and at times unsettling, Zero Dark Thirty is the story of the hunt for – and eventual killing of – Osama bin Laden. Directed by Kathryn “Hurt Locker” Bigelow, the first half of the film is an undeniably painstaking build, but the second half, and particularly the scintillating final 30 minutes, is all pay-off.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Available now
Sky Movies, NOW TV
Film buffs relax: the B-movie is absolutely here to stay, as this marvellously camp, preposterously silly Tim Burton production proves. Directed by Timur Bekmambetov, AL:VH doesn’t waste time and gets straight into its depiction of America’s greatest president as a blood-thirsty slayer of creatures of the night. Not big, not clever but great fun and, we suspect, destined to end up on a list of films also including Sharknado and Piranha 3D.

Seth MacFarlane’s (Family Guy, American Dad) re-imagining of toys-brought-to-life makes the Chucky movies look like Toy Story. John (Mark Wahlberg) has a childhood dream come true when he brings his beloved Ted to life one Christmas. A few decades later and Ted is still around, a drug-abusing, jobless layabout who leaves carnage wherever he goes. Somehow Wahlberg and his CGI co-star actually enjoy a small amount of chemistry, and while the story is a little flabby, the sharp jokes and keen delivery make this one to watch.
