Its been posted over on the Digital Spy forums that Sky One is to be replaced by Sky Showcase and there will be a new channel Sky Max from 1st September but links that have been posted dont say if this will also affect the Now service.

    Sky are always rechurning their services in a bid to squeeze more money out of their subscribers. It's their way.
    I'm now happy with the disagree icon, because its gone.

    Which confirms both channels are coming to Now as well, both proper Now and Now as presented by BT.

    it seems odd that while the world is rushing towards On Demand, Sky/Now would be launching a strictly linear channel (that word again!); but as it will be presenting content from all the other channels, I guess pretty much everything will be available on demand anyway, except maybe the movies they show if, like me, you think Now Cinema membership is a pretty bad bargain most of the time, and only buy a month of it over Christmas 😛

    As it apparently isn’t going to cost extra, how does that work?
