If you're looking for some top entertainment this month, we've got you covered with this round-up from Spotify Premium, Sky Sports Mobile TV, Amazon Prime Video, and NOW TV Entertainment...
With the glorious summer holidays coming to an end, and school getting back into gear, there’s no better way to spend your spare time than to kick back and squeeze in some entertainment – at any chance you get.
The good news is, with a Red Entertainment plan* from Vodafone UK, you’ve got the choice of a subscription to Sky Sports Mobile TV, Now TV Entertainment, Amazon Prime Video, or Spotify Premium at no extra cost! Need a hand choosing? Lets’ see what’s happening this month…
Sky Sports Mobile TV
September’s a good time to be a footie fan, with plenty of headline-grabbing games to keep you hooked as the 2018/19 Premier League continues – all live and exclusive on Sky Sports.
Starting with this weekend (1 September), you can catch Leicester City squaring off against Liverpool from 12:30pm at the King Power Stadium. Will Leicester be able to keep Mohammed Salah quiet? Comparing the two teams’ recent games, Liverpool look to be the stronger side, and they’ve won on their last two meetups with Leicester, to boot. Tune in to see who comes out on top.
For Sunday 2 September, Cardiff play against Arsenal at 1:30pm and Watford go head-to-head with Tottenham at 4pm, making it a pretty action-packed weekend. Looking further ahead meanwhile, Everton will meet West Ham on Sun 16 at 4pm, Fulham will clash with Watford on 22 September at 12:30pm, and Cardiff will play Burnley on 30 September at 4pm. Mark them in your calendar.
NOW TV Entertainment Pass
NOW TV is your window into a world of amazing top-flight TV, from classic, award-winning boxsets to new indie darlings. So what’s new this month?
Based on a novel by the same name, A Discovery of Witches is a supernatural romance where vampires, witches, and demons live in plain sight. All’s well for the show’s two leading characters – a witch named Diana (played by Teresa Palmer) and a vampire named Matthew (played by Matthew Goode) – until the search for a mysterious magic text sends them on a journey that’ll push them to the limits.
Trouble is, as their quest ramps up, so does their relationship. Isn’t that always the way? And with the shadowy ‘Covenant’ forbidding interspecies relationships, there’s only one question: what will be the cost of their blossoming love? Tune in to Sky One on 14 September to find out.
Amazon Prime Video
Prime Video is Amazon’s one-stop shop for movie and TV show streaming, with everything from big budget Hollywood blockbusters to its own range of ‘Amazon Original’ series. Last month we brought you word on Jack Ryan, the impressive new spy actioner, which landed on the service on 31 August, and that’s well worth a watch.
But what if you’ve burned through that already, and are looking for more? How about a classical change of pace?
Even 400 years after his death, William Shakespeare’s stories are still ripe for adaptation. And to prove it, King Lear, one of the English playwright’s best-loved tragedies, is coming to Prime Video this September by way of the BBC, which co-produced a two-hour movie version with Amazon earlier this year. This interpretation has a spectacular cast led by Sir Anthony Hopkins as the king himself, with Emma Thompson, Emily Watson, Jim Broadbent, Christopher Eccleston, and more providing backup.
Also on the cards this month is new Prime Original, Forever.
Don’t let the show’s fairly inocuous first trailer fool you; we’re promised that married couple June (Maya Rudolph) and Oscar (Fred Armisen) are destined for trouble when “a completely unexpected situation” sees them forced to leave the confines of their suburban nest. The series lands 14 September.
When it comes to music, Spotify has you more than covered; the streaming behemoth offers over 40 million tracks – and hundreds of thousands of playlists – all available right at your fingertips. It can be a vast aural ocean to navigate, but worry not: here’s our pick of what’s hot this month…
On 7 September, we’ll be treated to the latest studio album from Rudimental – Toast To Our Differences. According to the group themselves, the album is a celebration of difference, and the coming together of cultures and genres.
What does that multicultural ethos sound like, you ask? Here’s the lead track from the album, Toast To Our Differences, which hits that nail squarely on the head:
Also this month, Suede will release their eighth studio album entitled The Blue Hour. New track, The Invisibles, has a distinctly David Bowie feel about it, if you ask us – and that’s never a bad thing. Have a listen for yourself:
