Hi @Anonymous User sorry for the dealy. Has your cast button magically reinstalled yet? Have you tried rebooting your router, restarting your phone and trying again? Have you updated your iOS version recently?
I have literally just set up my new Chromecast following the guidance notes and waiting for the initial update to the latest software. I downloaded the Google and Now TV app onto my Ipad Mini 4 and can play and cast any number of TV programmes from All4, BBC iPlayer, YouTube etc but the Casting icon is missing from the Now TV programmes and if on ocassion, it makes an appearance, when activated, it does nothing and the TV screen just reverts from screensaver to "Ready for Casting". That's it!
I have to say, I am very disappointedand unless I get this resolved before the free trail period expires it will be going back for a refund.
Grateful for any advice that might help get Now TV working as there are a lot of box sets waiting for me.
Same problem, the bottoms no longer there to cast. Have had to download Roco to use a remote. Now box an iPhone both on the same network. The now app have also disappeared off my home page, which means even with the Roco app i can’t watch now tv through the Now tv app. Which is ridiculous! Will be cancelling all subscriptions I’d this isn’t resolved as I can only watch now tv on my phone.
Hi @Anonymous User
I can't help sorry about the loss of casting feature etc from the NowTV App when using your iPhone, where i don't own an iPhone (though a few forum members have reported this recently).
With regards to the new look NowTV home screen page on your box, with the missing dedicated NowTV App, then to reach the different NowTV categories on your NowTV box, navigate down the vertical grid to either the orange entertainment ticket box, purple cinema ticket box etc (depending on what NowTV Pass you have) and click on the coloured pass ticket tile box, which will then open the next screen page on your TV with different categories or options to watch with your NowTV pass or passes.
If you are not keen on that method, then go to Apps Store on your box, click the NowTV App, then click on "Go to App" which will then get you into the old style User Interface before NowTV updated the new look home screen.
the chromecast icon has disappeared from my NOW TV App. I have checked all other apps (BBC iPlayer, Netflix, Channel 4 etc.) and they all have the icon and have no casting isssues.
This happens frequently with the NOW TV App, but previously reinstalling the App corrected the issue.
I have now reinstalled the App three times and the icon is still missing. Help please, as this is becoming very frustrating!!!
I have the same problem. Contacted live chat but all they did was refer me to a YouTube video on casting from iOS devices in general. Nothing to do with now TV. This is a show stopper for me. Without the ability took cast I will not be renewing my subscription.
hope you can help. For the past two days the chrome cast icon has disappeared from my now TV app. I have deleted and reloaded the app. Turned the wifi off and on but nothing has happened. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am trying to cast from my phone Android to my chromecast
Youtube and Netflix work perfectly
Now tv will only play on my phone and has no option to cast
Now tv has been reinstalled
Google home has been reinstalled
Chromecast was resetup again just in case
Google home app lists youtube and netflix as casting apps but not NOWTV
I have just started my free trial if i cant get this to work its going to be no sale
Quick question are you using a BT Router, if so try switching off the smart setup by following these instructions.
