NOW TV Mobile Entertainment Pass
Game of Thrones fans need only wait another two months for more of George R.R Martin’s epic televisual tale. Season seven lands on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV Entertainment on 17 July, which means only one thing: there’s just enough time to re-watch the whole lot!
Seasons 1-6 of HBO’s televisual masterpiece are back on NOW TV from May, letting you wade back into Westeros for a rollicking (and memory-refreshing) 60 hours of fantastic fantasy.
But there’s plenty more on offer besides; May sees the launch of the rebooted Twin Peaks, for one! This new season of David Lynch’s superb, surreal murder mystery picks up 25 years after the cult hit events of the Laura Palmer case, with Kyle McLachlan’s Agent Cooper returning to the titular town to sample the exceptional coffee and wet his beak in more intrigue. Expect it to become a water-cooler-talk phenomenon from 22 May.
Also on the cards is Jamestown, from the makers of Downton Abbey. The show’s set to follow three boisterous young British women touching down on American soil in 1619. The Colonial calamities begin on 5 May.
Sky Sports Mobile TV
May’s biggest sporting fixture has to be the One-Day Internationals between England and South Africa. Switch to Sky Sports 2 on May 24, 27 and 29 to see England’s finest take to Headingly, the Ageas Bowl, and Lord’s in a bid to blast 50 overs’ worth over the rope. These Internationals will come hot on the heels of two against Ireland, so here’s hoping our boys keep their composure all month long.
This month’s other headline sporting event? The infamous Monaco Grand Prix. Sky Sports Mobile TV subscribers can tune in on 28 May to catch all the action, as Lewis Hamilton and the Mercedes team look to edge out ahead of Sebastian Vettel in the twisting tunnels and streets of the world’s most glamorous city-state.
Elsewhere, there’s a feast of top flight footie in May, kicking off on the first of the month with Watford vs Liverpool. Highlights for the rest of the month include Arsenal facing Man Utd on Sunday 7 May, Manchester City vs last season’s champs Leicester City on 13 May, and West Ham vs Liverpool on 14 May.
Are you watching Girlboss? Described by Bridger Cunningham of TV Ratings Guide as a ‘Crass-Com’ (crass sitcom), it’s a hilarious show firmly rooted in the humdrum of everyday living rather than the glamorous lifestyles and luxury apartments found most US sitcoms.
It stars Britt Robertson as real life internet mogul Sophia Marlowe – a self-made millionaire who grew an online clothing brand from nothing – whose autobiography of the same name serves as Girlboss’ playbook. You can catch all 13 episodes of season one on Netflix now.
Other new releases to keep an eye on this month include the third seasons of both Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Bloodline (19 and 26 May respectively), and, of course the return of President Frank Underwood for season five of House of Cards, on 30 May.
Ed Sheeran may still be chewing up the streaming charts, but there’s more to Spotify than the redheaded songsmith – about 40 million more, to be precise. And, aside from features like Discover Weekly and Release Radar helping you uncover hidden gems, May’s full of big new releases.
One Direction fans (and detractors) will no doubt be tripping over themselves to check out Harry Styles’ debut solo album when it lands on 12 May. Check out launch single Sign of the Times below:
Other albums on the slate for May include No Shape by Perfume Genius and Pollinator by Blondie, landing 5 May. Listen to the new single from the latter, Fragments, for a taster:
Pollinator will be Blondie’s seventh studio album, and is set to feature songs penned by a laundry list of outside talent, including David Sitek from TV on the Radio and Charli XCX. Blondie guitarist Chris says simply: “We thought to ask people because there’s so much good music swirling about.”
