no freeview with new NowTV?

The new now TV box doesn't have free view ? IV saw some comments online saying to buy a internal aerial so I did so. But there is still no free view ? Can anyone help with this ?

Hi @Ant30

The only nowtv product that supports Freeview via a TV aerial is the older discontinued nowtv Freeview smart box generation 1 shown in the picture below.

Is this the nowtv box that you own ?

Hi @CLC27

Unless you have the older generation smart box shown in my previously posted picture, then you won't get Freeview via any other nowtv box or stick and just use the normal Freeview from your TV inbuilt tuner.

If you have the box shown in the photo, there will be an aerial socket on the back of the box to connect to your TV aerial for watching the over the air Freeview channels.

Thanks. My opinion is that the older version is better than the latest
stick. Thanks again for getting back to me

@anne9 if you read the very informative posts by @schnapps Earlier in this thread, you’ll find out how to do it if you have the first generation smart box. You can’t with any other box or stick, although the various players (iplayer, itv hub, etc) are available.
