It's not really a British summer until the sun is shining, the grass is green, you've got a Pimms in your hand, and the cricket's on the telly. Well, the sun is attempting to shine at least, somewhere up there. And the grass is more of an off-yellow because it's been exposed to sporadic bouts of direct sunlight, but you definitely can't escape the cricket (hence the need for the Pimms), and Now TV is offering a Sky Sports Pass for just £25 a month for four months, saving you more than 25 per cent off the usual price.
All 48 ICC Cricket World Cup matches will air on Sky Sports, kicking off on May 30 with England v South Africa, and after that, it's straight into The Ashes starting on August 1. England will face off against Australia over the course of six weeks to win back the Ashes (we hope) that it lost in 2017.
The Sports Pass will let you stream all sorts of sports available across 11 Sky Sports channels, like the Netball World Cup which I've just discovered is a thing, as well as the UEFA Nationals League, British Grand Prix, and a plethora of other activities which I know equally nothing about.
The monthly pass is usually priced at £33.99 per month, so if this discount sounds like it's right up your street, hang tight until May 17 when it goes live. You'll have until June 9 to claim the deal right here.
If you're not as entranced by men kicking balls around as you thought you might be, allow us to take you on a tour of sci-fi sports that range from the whimsical to the downright brutal. Call me when Sky Sports holds its first live battle royale bout, and I'll be there.
