Re: chromecast when i try to login to my bt id account for sport

Chromecast allows customers to ‘cast’ video to their television from the BT Sport App on a tablet or smartphone.  

 

 

Note that it does not say it will work using the laptop/PC.

 

 

When you use your laptop or  to play BT Sport it uses silverlight  and Google says:

 

The significant majority of web content can be cast. However, sites that use plug-ins such as as Silverlight, Quicktime & VLC are not supported, and may result in a lack of picture or sound.

Just use your Hudl ... it effectively acts as a remote control for the BT Sports feed. (You do not need to keep the Hudl screen active - you can put it to sleep). It also means you can access additional cameras on things like MotoGP, features that are not available to the PC app.

Thanks
