Hi so I’ve got a new now tv smart box and we bought it because you can’t get the old ones anymore but I cannot get any freeview channels. I’ve read a load of chats on here and I’m aware that this box doesn’t have a build in freeview thing but what I’d like to know is if I bought an indoor aerial and plugged that in would I get freeview aswell ? We had virgin media before and they cut our main aerial connection. I also tried the Pluto app that just gives me aload of random channels and I’m also aware you can get some programmes on catch up 🙄
Sadly the current NOW TV Smart Box doesn't have a built in Freeview tuner @Anonymous User . So there is currently no way of getting normal freeview via an aerial 😕
Sorry about this @Anonymous User
If you have a Smart TV though you may have the Freeview Play app built in which could be of use.
The only Now TV device with Freeview was the original smart box (the one with the blue Now TV logo), and you will need an aerial input for this feature to work. You can buy second hand boxes on CEX and eBay.
However the iPlayer, ITV Hub and All 4 apps do include live channels.
