Can't use chromecast

Hello I bought a chrome cast last month and tried casting to it. But it won't add NowTV as a device. I keep getting the error message saying max number of devices reached. I have removed all devices except for my iPhone hoping that would work and waited for Sept but I still can't cast. Please help or I'll cancel subscription as no use to me. Thanks

Does the NowTV app work off your iPhone without casting to your TV ?

 

Are you using iOS10 on your iPhone ? 

 

Who is your ISP and Router model number ?

Hello @schnapps 🙂

Yes it works off the iPhone without casting.

I'm on 9.3.2

BT and it's the home hub 4.0

Make sure that smart setup is disabled on your BT Router (see instructions linked below how to disable smart setup).

If you are still getting the message regarding maximum device limit, then jump over to nowtv live chat where hopefully they will free up a device slot for you.
