The enhanced player will not Airplay but the standard player will . Only some programs use the enhanced player. I believe the BT Sport App should give you the option of watching with the standard player or the enhanced pplayer if it detects an Airplay or casting device. Are you not getting that option ?
Same issue here, goes straight in to Enhanced Player and no option of Standard Player!! Hope this is a one off mistake in the part of BTSport techies, and it won't be the norm. Kinda defeats the point of streaming the app.
And what is annoying is when I do it in this order:
- Close app on iPad
- Set iPad to airplay to AppleTV
- Start iPad
- Choose BTSport 1 and the rugby
- Enhanced player opens directly, with picture on iPad and sound on AppleTV!
I'm guessing someone hard coded something on BTSport 1 where enhanced player is available it won't stream to AppleTV. Mistake I assume, or is this now the norm!?!?
well i've just launched Bt Sport App on Ipad Air and got the expected option to opt for Enhanced or Standard player , choose Standard player and am now successfully airplaying to Apple Tv 3.
using Bt Sport App version 3.5.1
IPad IOS 10.2
Apple TV s/w 7.2.2
Some Bt Sport App subscriptions do not allow casting/airplay - did you get your subscription via your mobile contract or via your Bt Broadband/BT TV/BT Sport contract ?
