smart tv browser download silverlight

hi

I have bt sport but because I don't subscribe to infinity I can only get espn via the internet-

(not what I was told when subscribed but was also told at the time I would get eurosport )

when I access my bt on the internet using smart tv-

and choose the bt sport or espn channels I get the prompt to download silverlight-

when I try to install- get the message 'forbidden 403'

 

is this because my tv browser will not accept silverlight?-LG tv-

the bt sport channels work fine on bt vision box-but not able to access espn by vision box

Same thing with Samsung. Maybe the computer in the tv isn't up to it.

Hello,

 

Your TV isn't running Windoz so the Silverlight download directs you to Moonlight which doesn't support Silverlight  'cause Silverlight is going out of fashion.

 

Bottom line is you need a Windoz PC to get BTSport via Internet.  Smiley Mad

 

Of course, I could be biased as I don't agree with Windoz !!!!

Recent versions of MacOS are also supported.

LG advised me that you cannot download Silverlight via their browser. I have overcome the problem by connecting Kindle Fire via HDMI cable. Works well, if you have an android device that your TV will read.
