Looking at the list of games to be covered by BT TV channels (as opposed to the app) it seems that only 2 of the sport extra channels are being used Thursday (17th) for the games. So effectively 4 early and 4 late kick off games are being shown on Thursday.
September 17, Matchday 1
Ajax v Celtic - 5.30pm (BT Sport 2)
Bordeaux v Liverpool - 6pm (BT Sport Europe)
Napoli v Club Brugge – 6pm (BT Sport Extra 2)
Borussia Dortmund v Krasnodar – 6pm (BT Sport Extra 3)
Tottenham v Qarabag - 8pm (BT Sport Europe)
Anderlecht v Monaco - 8pm (BT Sport 2)
Fiorentina v Basel – 8pm (BT Sport Extra 2)
Dnipro v Lazio – 8pm (BT Sport Extra 3)
Is there a reason why other games are not being transmitted on the other available Sport Extra channels ?
the website says
While a limited number of games can be shown at one time across BT Sport's TV channels and the new Connected Red Button service, every single game can be viewed via the BT Sport app or online at BTSport.com.
It does seem suprising that the other extra channels are not being utilised.
There seems to be some confusiion as to the number of games included in BT Europa league''s coverage . The same official BT web page repotrs the number of games to be 175 and seperately 205.
Juding from what I can see on the app, it now apperers that BT Sport will indeed be showing every Europa Leauge game, good news for everyone who was looking forward to watching Galaba vs PAOK
Whilst the other games are available on the Android and Ios app - neither app is allowing the games to be cast or airplayed to TV when you attempt to do so you get a BT Sport Extra logo screen. Disappointing - app fault or intentianal restriction from BT - who knows
I would welcome an explanation as to why BT is apparently only broadcasting Europa League on two of the seven available BT Sport Extra channels particularly as BT appear to be stopping Casting/airplay of the Sport App Digital Exclusive content.
