Hi @VKH 

Sounds like you got the NOW Freeview Smart box with the blue NOW TV name on the top box casing if it doesn't support the Disney + App anymore.

Unfortunately NOW don't sell either the NOW boxes or NOW Stick anymore where they have been discontinued.

Look at something like a Roku player or Amazon Fire Stick has a replacement, though these devices don't have a Freeview inbuilt tuner with a TV aerial connection on them and you will have to use alternative means to watch Freeview (unless you keep watching on the NOW Freeview Smart box).


Bad news is.... you dont.  NOW stopped selling own branded hardware a few years ago.

Good new is... theres a lot of other options out there where the NOW app works very well.  Cheapest being an Amazon Firestick.



On Amazon maybe (surprise, surprise!) but if you cast your net wider, to Currys or Argos for instance, you can get a Roku Express for what Roku say the RRP is:-



Set a Payment PIN on your account so that no-one but you can buy memberships on it. Check your bank accounts monthly for any other unexpected payments to Now. That way you can at least nip them in the bud, while you and Now figure out whose fault they are.
This week, I are genrally been watching epsidoes on my Sasmung TV
