Hi @Brendan26

When you say channels, do you mean over the air Freeview channels such has BBC, ITV, Channel 4, 5 etc or do you mean live entertainment channels like Sky One, Sky Witness, Sky Atlantic etc using a nowtv entertainment pass ?

If you are referring to Freeview teresterial channels, then you need the nowtv smart Freeview box (see photo below) with a TV aerial connected to it, where this box is now discontinued from retailers.

Hi @Brendan26

The NowTV Hub 2 is just a broadband router, to watch nowtv you need a nowtv playback device and a nowtv pass such has entertainment for the entertainment stuff, cinema for movies etc.

Have a read of this help article.

Hi @Brendan26

If you don't own a compatible device from the help linked below, then yes the cheapest option would be a nowtv stick complete with smart remote controller which you can buy from places like Argos, Curry's, Tesco's, Sainsburys etc for around £15.

To use the nowtv stick, i am assuming your TV has a spare HDMI port ?
