App won't work on chromecast

Just spoken to bt technical, to be told that the bt sport app will not work via chromecast, it will only work via a PC or laptop. It is all very well BT changing to this and cutting of the aerial signal, but when you live in a rural area and cannot get infinity, the broadband speed is awful, and keeps freezing when watching via laptop. Not happy at all.

Re: App won't work on chromecast

Depending upon which mobile phone or tablet you have and the quality of your wifi connection you can use Chromecast.

 

Some BT info here

From the BT Sport app, you tap the Chromecast button, select the Chromecast device you want to use and the content is beamed from your smartphone or tablet to play on your TV. For most content, it's important to remember that you're not actually streaming from the control device to the Chromecast. Instead, your controlling device talks to the Chromecast and tells it where it can access the stream from; the Chromecast then takes over playback duties, letting you use your smartphone or tablet for any other job. However, a connection is still made between the two devices, so that you can control playback.
