How to watch The Ashes series in 2015 - 8 ways to catch the cricket

Now TV - and a deckchair

If you aren't looking for a permanent subscription, but you do want to watch on your main television, then you could pick up a NOW TV box and a Sky Sports pass. The NOW TV box is a low-cost streaming option (it's heavily subsidised by Sky and is built by Roku) with an HDMI cable that connects to your network and streams, so you should definitely be sure that your internet speed is up to the task.

You can buy day passes for £6.99, but Sky has also brought in a week pass now for Sports that would make a lot of sense for the Tests.
