Welcome to the forum.
It's something that has been asked for quite a lot on the forums, but unfortunately NOW TV don't really announce improvements ahead of time so we've no idea whether this is something they are looking into or not. Given it has to fit in with the Roku interface it may not be an easy task to achieve. If you have your box in the same room as another Freeview box, or your TV has a better user interface for Freeview then personally I'd connect the aerial up to them and just use the NOW TV box for the apps, as you'd get a better overall experience that way. That's what I do, although in my case, I use a Freesat box for free-to-air channels. Alternately, as you say you already have a Chromecast you may decide the smart box isn't really offering you enough to keep hold of it, but that's your choice.
Hey Andy. I'm new to NOWTV and also have pretty much the same issues as Harrisonact1. I am also very frustrated with not being able to view a week long program guide. I was a skytv customer for 12 years and no loyalty rewards there! While waiting for my NOWTV to be activated I was stuck with watching my freeview channels. I still have my sky box and when watching freeview I was able to access the sky tv guide. Now after connecting my NOWTV setup I am unable to access the skytv week long tv guide.
I am hoping you might be able to tell me if there is any hope of accessing my skytv guide while still connected to my NOWTV and if so could you please HELP!!!
@Anonymous User unfortunately not on the smart box. I'd use the website version of the Sky TV guide. It does have the advantage of allowing you to keep watching whilst browsing.
There is actually an Ideas Board on the forum, but you can't post directly into it, the NOW TV Team instead choose which ideas go in. I'll tag @Simon-J from the NOW TV Team and if he agrees he'll add it to the Ideas Board.

Haha just seen the typo for freeview... Now TV with freckles, now that's a future suggestion lol
A NOW TV box with freckles could be a great idea, we've already had a NOW TV box with penguins so who knows ...
