July is here and the sun is shining, but that's no excuse to miss out on all the great 4G entertainment that's coming! Check out our rundown for this month...
Did you know that when you sign up for one of our Red Value Bundles, we’ll give you a subscription to Spotify Premium, a NOW TV Entertainment Pass or Sky Sports Mobile TV for no extra cost?* It’s true! With unfettered access to our 4G network, and up to 24 months of access to all your favourite music, sport or TV, the only problem you’ll have is deciding what to watch or listen to.
That’s where we come in. Every month we bring you a rundown of what’s coming up, and July is looking like a cracking month for 4G entertainment…
Sky Sports Mobile TV
Yes, the football season is over, and while that might leave many of you floundering for something to watch on your Saturday afternoons, you needn’t panic just yet; July is still packed to the rafters with sport.
The month kicks off with all the drama and intrigue of The Ashes. After some encouraging performances against New Zealand, a young, talented England cricket side will face an Australian team that ranks second in the world in test and ODI matches. Will they buckle under the intense pressure of an Ashes series, or will their talent shine through against an old foe? Either way, it’ll be spellbinding stuff, and it all starts on 8 July, so don’t miss it.
If you’re really hankering for some football, Sky Sports is the only place to watch matches from the American MLS. Tune in at 10pm on 5 July to catch Portland Timbers vs. San Jose Earthquakes, followed directly by Columbus Crew vs. New York Red Bulls.
And there’s plenty more besides, including loads of Super League action as we get to the business end of the rugby league season. There’s the Super Rugby Final on 4 July for rugby union fans, and plenty of golf too, as the Scottish Open starts on 9 July – all live and exclusive on Sky Sports.
First things first, we recommend you login to Spotify on 10 July and listen to ‘Communion’ – the new album from electronica trio Years & Years. Fresh off winning the BBC’s Sound of 2015 award, the British group look set for big things, and ‘Communion’ could be the start of a meteoric rise to fame.
Alongside that, there’s no doubting that one of this month’s biggest releases comes from Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons, also known as The Chemical Brothers. Believe it or not, this is their first new album release in five years, since 2010’s ‘Further’ signalled a return to form for the funky duo, and it’ll be available to Spotify users on 17 July. Can’t wait that long? Check below to listen to the opening track – ‘Sometimes I Feel So Deserted’.
There’s plenty more coming on 17 July too, including a new record from experimental rock duo Ratatat, and a new album from Joss Stone titled ‘Water for Your Soul’, which promises a significant reggae influence, inspired by Stone’s work with Damian Marley. See? We told you it was going to be a good month!
