Hi KG

The Now TV stick is a no-go, you need the Now TV Smart Box with an Aerial.

Unfortunately, if you really want freeview access then you have bought the wrong product.

Maybe you can return the Stick to the retailer and get the more expensive Smart Box instead.

Hi @Keygough

You can't, only the first generation nowtv smart box has an inbuilt tuner to receive the over the air Freeview channels using a TV aerial connected to the box.

Hi @Keygough

The first generation smart box are not old or redundant (i use one in my set up) and i am guessing the email was possibly referring to the old white boxes that has less processing power and memory compared to all the other nowtv devices where there is a number of Apps such as Nefflix and UKTV Play etc that are not supported on the white nowtv boxes.

Hi @Keygough

If it's the smart box shown in the picture on this thread, then Yep keep using the nowtv smart box if you prefer this device over the nowtv stick Smiley Happy
