NOW TV is really you only option. You can watch the red button interactive services but only on a 31 day contract and not a one day pass.

 

Heres the info form the NOW TV website:

 

Got a Sports Membership, and one of the devices listed below? You can access extra channels on selected sports events using Bonus Streams, including additional EFL matches and F1 Race Control.

  • Amazon Fire TV Edition – all supported models
  • Amazon Fire TV – 2nd gen (2015), 3rd gen (2017)
  • Amazon Fire TV Stick – 2nd & 3rd gen, 4K, Lite & Basic Edition
  • Apple TV – 4th gen or later
  • NOW Smart Stick or Box
  • Roku boxes and streaming players
  • YouView box
  • PS4, PS5
  • Xbox One, Xbox Series X & S
  • Supported LG or Samsung Smart TV

When a Bonus Stream is available, you'll find the option at the bottom of the Sports page in the NOW app. Don't worry if you can't see any Bonus Streams right now – they'll appear automatically by the time the event starts.

Keep in mindYou can't watch Bonus Streams with a Sports Day or Mobile Membership. NOW Boost features, including full HD and 50 frames per second, aren't available on Bonus Streams.

@Sku  This isn't an option I'm afraid

Re: Sky Sports Red Button

I am subscribed to NOW TV sports, monthly sunscription. I have an LG smart TV and an Amazon Firestick 4k. A couple of weeks ago i tried to get Bonus streams for EFL matches. I followed instructions to look for 'bonus stream' at the bottom of the sports page, but without success. Can anyone advise if there is something that I need to do to get the 'bonus streams' to appear. I spent some considerable time during the transmission time . According to the NOW TV information I understand I should be able to get it by the TV smart and the firestick.

Re: Sky Sports Red Button

@tightlines1  From reading previous post I thought it would end up at the bottom of the TV guide of sports channels but it doesn't. I clicked on the sport menu and then scrolled down to the football icon button.  A row after the live games were the boost red button games
