Game of Thrones returns to our screens this month, but that's not the only highlight! April is packed with great music, TV and Sport - take a look!
Our Red Value 4G Bundles are fantastic value for anyone looking for a pay monthly deal, and if you’re fanatical about music, TV or sport, there’s really no better choice. Why’s that, you ask? Well, when you sign up to any one of them we’ll throw in a subscription to one of Sky Sports Mobile TV, Spotify Premium or a NOW TV Entertainment Pass as part of the deal!*
There’s a bounty of fantastic #4GEntertainment this month across the board, and as usual, we’re here to give you the rundown on what you should be looking out for. Let’s kick things off with NOW TV…
NOW TV Entertainment Pass
NOW TV is a fantastic choice for those who like to keep up to date with the very latest and greatest television. If you go with a NOW TV Entertainment Pass when you pick up your Red Value Bundle, you’ll get access to loads of amazing channels including Sky Atlantic, FOX and Sky1 as well as on-demand access to over 250 brilliant TV Box Sets.
And what a month to have no-holds-barred access to Sky Atlantic! Game of Thrones returns to our screens this month for what promises to be an enthralling sixth season in Westeros and Essos. Fancy trying to figure out what might be coming up? See if you can glean any clues from the latest trailer…
The new season starts on 25 April so now’s the time to be catching up on seasons 1-5. The whole lot is available on NOW TV Entertainment now, so best get cracking! And don’t worry if you don’t make it through seasons 1-5 by the time season 6 starts, they’ll still be available for you to watch past 25 April.
And there’s plenty more to whet your TV appetite besides. Take 11.22.63 for example – a brand new science fiction thriller coming to FOX, based on the Stephen King novel of roughly the same title (11/22/63). That date is of course the day JFK was assassinated, and the story revolves around time-travelling scientist Jake Epping (played by James Franco), who tries to stop the event happening. With talent like Franco, as well as J.J. Abrams and King as Executive Producers, 11.22.63 is set to be truly jaw-dropping.
This time last year, you’d be forgiven for not having heard of pop-rockers Lukas Graham. The Danish four-piece are cemented at the top of the UK Top 50 chart with their hit single ‘7 Years’. If you’re a fan, we have some good news – Lukas Graham’s new album – ‘Blue Years’ – drops onto Spotify on 1 April.
Elsewhere, April is a good month for electronic music fans too! Minimal techno supergroup Moderat release their third album – imaginatively titled ‘III’ – on 1 April, whilst French electro band M83 follow with their latest record a week later. Check out Moderat’s latest single ‘Reminder’ just underneath!
Keep an eye out for a new feature this month too – Spotify Concerts! Spotify has teamed with Songkick to keep you in the loop on live music in your area. Just head on over to the ‘Browse’ tab and select ‘Concerts’ to see a list of what’s on nearby, including your selected favourite artists and those that Spotify thinks you’ll love based on your personal tastes.
Sky Sports Mobile TV
With every month that goes by the Premier League gets hotter and hotter, and Leicester City look closer and closer to completing one of the most improbable sporting victories of modern times. You can watch The Foxes chase the league title on every Super Sunday throughout the month, but there are plenty of big clashes elsewhere.
On 10 April, Spurs face Manchester United at home, followed by Chelsea vs. Man City on 16 April and the Merseyside Derby – Liverpool vs. Everton – on 20 April.
And that’s not all for footy fans. Tune in to Sky Sports 1 on 3 April to catch El Clasico – Real Madrid vs. Barcelona – as Barcelona look to cement yet another trophy under Luis Enrique.
Don’t forget about the Cricket either! After a couple of scares, England have made the semi-finals, and will take on New Zealand on 30 March, with a place in the final beckoning. Tune into Sky Sports on 3 April at 1.30pm for the final of the ICC World Twenty20, and keep your fingers crossed!
Firstly, have you watched the latest series of House of Cards yet? Frank Underwood returned to our screens last month, and he’s taken up residence on Netflix for the foreseeable future. If you haven’t caught up with season 4 yet, you’re missing out! Need a refresher? Here’s our spoiler-heavy seasons 1-3 recap.
As for this month? Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt returns for a second season, with Kimmy continuing her new life in New York after escaping the clutches of a Doomsday Cult in Indiana. The first season was critically acclaimed – check it out first if you haven’t already – and with TV heavyweights like Tina Fey and Jon Hamm backing up Ellie Kemper as Kimmy, season 2 promises to be one of the year’s highlights. Jump onto Netflix on 15 April to watch the whole series!
As if that wasn’t enough this April, there’s a little something extra coming from comedy giant Ricky Gervais. His new film Special Correspondents – a remake of a 2009 French comedy by the same name (‘Envoyés très spéciaux’) – stars himself and Eric Bana as struggling radio journalists who try to fake their own kidnappings. Special Correspondents arrives on Netflix on 29 April.
