Good morning

There is a native NOW app for Apple TV, so not sure why you’d want to cast?

 

Nonetheless, you will indeed be able to cast.

Because I have an old Apple TV box - it’s about 4 years old. I’ve already tried, but the app doesn’t work, hence why I want to stream.

Ah I get you. Sorry about that. 

Thought it should allow casting via AirPlay.

I’ve not tried the Air Play yet to be honest, I was a bit reluctant to get my now tv day pass until I knew I could do so. I definitely cannot access the app directly via Apple TV, because of the age, however I came to the conclusion I could Air Play purely down to the fact I can with the BT Sport App.

Take it you don’t have any other active memberships with NOW to give it a test?

 

Its always worth trying your luck to test by purchasing and if it doesn’t work you could jump onto live chat to complain. They might be able to give you a refund.

But when Now give you the three month’s Mobile Pass you get with a Day Pass, you won’t be able to cast that.

Hi @Adam84 

 

With regards to the purchase of the NOW Day Sports Pass.

 

If Air Play was supported when using the NOW App on the iPhone, then i would expect it to be mentioned on one of the NOW Help Articles which i haven't come across.

 

You could previously cast from an iPhone to a NOW Box / NOW Stick (no idea if it's still broken or fixed), but  i never understood why anybody would do this having a NOW Box or NOW Stick already connected to your television apart from using the iPhone has a remote controller if you have lost or broken the physical NOW remote.

Also double check you don't already own a suitable playback device from this list in the link below.
