This month brings with it a whole heap of fresh content from Amazon Prime Video, NOW TV Entertainment Pass, Sky Sports Mobile TV, and Spotify Premium. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights…
We’re lucky to be inundated with amazing new entertainment offerings month-in, month-out. But sometimes we’re so awash with streamable excellence that it can be tough to find what you’re really looking for.
But fear not – we’re here once again to provide you with our roundup of the very best in mobile-based entertainment for the month. Whether you’re looking for the next series to binge-watch, a new playlist to stick on repeat, or you’ve got some weekends free to enjoy live Premier League action, we’ve got you covered.
But first things first, how can you enjoy all that on your phone? Well, if you select one of our Red Entertainment plans*, a subscription to Amazon Prime Video, NOW TV Entertainment Pass, Sky Sports Mobile TV, or Spotify Premium is included for up to two years!
Luckily, as our roundup of what’s on offer in March proves, you simply can’t go wrong – no matter which one you choose…
Amazon Prime Video
Comedies or crime thrillers? Boxsets or blockbusters? Whatever you fancy, Amazon Prime Video is jam-packed with amazing content.
Last year Amazon scored big with the action-packed Jack Ryan. On the hunt for similar success is new Prime Original The Widow, which will be arriving on the small screen on March 1. The eight-episode thriller sees Kate Beckinsale uncovering the mysterious disappearance of her husband. Beckinsale has been hunting werewolves in the Underworld series for years, so she should make light work of this new venture. Check out the trailer below to see her in action:
Elsewhere on Prime Video we have the debut season of kid’s animated series Costume Quest, which is based on the smash hit video game of the same name. And, of course, it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t also have some fresh arrivals from the big screen. So this month, why not sit back, relax and catch Jack Black don a wrestling mask and tights in the classic comedy, Nacho Libre?
NOW TV Entertainment Pass
Keen for a new boxset binge? With a NOW TV Entertainment Pass you can enjoy all the latest and greatest TV hits, plus great live content from many of the nation’s favourite channels, including Sky Atlantic and Sky One. And now, to help you watch in even more places, the NOW TV app lets you download a host of its best content for offline viewing – perfect for long commutes.
As we continue to gear up for April 15 and Game of Thrones season eight – the fantasy epic’s final chapter – it’s time to refresh your memory on every jaw-dropping moment that’s gone down in Westeros so far. The entire seven-season boxset is now available to stream on NOW TV, so there’s no excuse not to book-out your weekends, fire up the NOW TV app, and binge all 67 episodes. And the same goes for you if you’re yet to get hooked on the all-conquering drama.
But don’t worry if your March is already looking a bit too hectic for every GoT episode – there’s plenty more award-winning content on its way that won’t take up quite as much of your time. Fans of the New York financial drama, Billions, will be thrilled to see Chuck Rhoades and Bobby Axelrod continue to battle out their high-stakes game of cat and mouse, as the series returns for its third season at the end of the month.
Sky Sports Mobile TV
With the Premier League building up to a dramatic climax, you can be sure that you don’t miss a single second of it all – wherever you are – with Sky Sports Mobile TV on your phone.
You don’t need us to tell you that the Premier League season is hotting up, but March will see some pivotal moments as the battles at the top and bottom of the league intensify. First up we’re at Craven Cottage, as relegation-fighting Fulham play host to London neighbours and top-four contenders Chelsea on Sunday, March 3.
Another team fighting for a place in next season’s Champions League, Manchester United face two huge back-to-back fixtures in the middle of the month. First up, Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men make the trip down to the Emirates to play Arsenal on Sunday, March 10.
Then, just six days later, title-contenders Manchester City make the short trip to Old Trafford for the ever-anticipated Manchester Derby on Saturday, March 16. All three games – plus a whole host of others – will of course be available to stream live on Sky Sports Mobile TV.
If you need to plug in and get your head down, or you’re planning a night in with some friends, audio entertainment is likely what you’re after. So look no further than Spotify Premium. With over 40 million tracks available – not to mention an ever-growing podcast catalogue – Premium lets you feast your ears on practically endless, and fully ad-less, content.
Heading into March means one thing: spring is here. We can’t guarantee that the weather will brighten up, but we can get excited about longer days and, for the lucky few of us, trips away. So, if you’re road tripping it anytime soon, be sure to check out Spotify’s ‘Classic Roadtrip Songs’ playlist.
From The Beatles to Fleetwood Mac, this selection of classics will make those hours sat in the car fly by. But, believe us, you don’t need to be cruising down Route 66 to listen in – nor do you even need to be on a road trip (we won’t tell if you don’t).
We also have some highly-anticipated new albums to Spotify this March. Heavy-hitting Oxford rockers Foals are releasing Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1, their fifth studio album. And Hozier’s Wasteland, Baby! – the second release after his much-acclaimed, self-titled debut way back in 2014 – will also be available at the start of the month.
With Spotify Premium you can treat your ears to all that great new content without a single interrupting ad. And if you like what Foals, Hozier or the thousands of other artists on Spotify are doing, Premium enables you to take them all offline – meaning you can enjoy every tune even without an internet connection.
