Top five things on NOW TV this week
Sky TV is now more accessible with NOW TV so you don’t have to miss your favourite live sport or the latest movies. Here’s the pick of this week’s live sports and latest movie releases, exclusively on LG Smart TVs.
Sky Sports pass
Formula 1: The United States Grand Prix
Sunday November 17, 5.30pm
Sky Sports F1 HD, NOW TV
Exclusively live on Sky F1 HD, the Formula 1 circus returns to the Circuit of the Americas for the second time. No one does a spectacle like the Americans, and the three-and-a-half mile Texan circuit delivers thrilling racing and great TV. A 40-metre change in altitude throughout the 20-turn circuit makes for great viewing and because the CoA is one of only a handful of counter-clockwise tracks this season, the drivers have to work harder as well.
Sky Movies pass
Snow White and the Huntsman
Yes, it stars Kristen Stewart (Twilight), but don’t judge Snow White on that alone. This grown-up take on the fairy tale contains some top notch effects and a gloweringly evil performance from Charlize Theron. A little confused at times and featuring a few decidedly uneven performances, this is nonetheless delivers enough thrills and enjoyable moments to be a crowd pleaser.
NEW on NOW TV: Sky Entertainment
Sky Atlantic, NOW TV
Season four of HBO’s high-calibre, big-budget period piece goes from strength to strength. Steve Buscemi stars as Nucky Thompson, a fictional take on a real-life eponymous 1920s Atlantic City supremo. The series painstakingly and gorgeously recreates that era’s America, taking in everything from prohibition to the rise of Al Capone, brilliantly played by Brit Stephen Graham (Snatch).
Sky Atlantic, NOW TV
Available as a boxset on NOW TV – meaning you can gorge on it in a single sitting – The Wire is perhaps the finest TV drama committed to film in history. The characters, from flawed hero McNulty (Dominic West) to the brilliant, mercurial Omar (Michael K. Williams) are believable from the start and the interwoven plot strands don’t fray across its five incredible seasons. Worth a re-watch if you’ve already seen it; if you haven’t, you’re in for a treat.
Friday November 9, 15, 29
Sky Living, Now TV
Produced in Budapest, this adaptation of Stoker’s most famous creation stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers as everyone’s favourite jugular-troubler and brings to story to the suitably gothic environs of 19th century London, as Drac splits his time between posing as an American inventor and seeking revenge against his enemies. Top production values, story telling and film making make this a Friday night streaming must-watch.
