The only assumption here is that you have use for a £20 M&S voucher…
Following this promotional Sky Now TV Promotion [Expired] from Sky will allow you to set up a Now TV ID (or use your existing Sky ID if you’re already a Sky customer) and get Sky Movies activated:
Using this promotion, the first month of Sky Movies is free and the second month reverts to the usual cost of £8.99 a month.
After your first monthly payment of £8.99 leaves your account, the ‘cash-back’ element of the deal kicks in and a £20 M&S voucher gets posted to you. At this point you can cancel your Sky Movies subscription online.
So just to go over the numbers again:
- Now TV Box with Free P&P: £9.99
- Sky Movies (Month 1): £0.00
- Sky Movies (Month 2): £8.99
- M&S Voucher: £20
Total: -£1.02 (PROFIT)
NB: Don’t forget to cancel the Sky Movies at some point after the first payment has gone through (the joining email provides details of how to do this) or you’ll be ponying up £8.99 every month going forwards.
Even after the Sky Movies subscription has been cancelled, you’ll still have access to free channels such as Sky News, BBC News and the BBC iPlayer.
And if you want to ‘side-load’ Plex onto the box, you can follow the instructions in these previous articles:
