Hoping someone can clarify for me. I have BT Fibre broadband, BT TV and BT Sport. I'm confused about the number of simultaneous users/devices.
Does BT Sport have a limit of registered devices?
I tend to watch BT Sport on my BT TV box connected to my TV.
But occasionally, depending who else is using the TV, I also watch on my laptop or my iPhone.
My son would like to watch in his bedroom, either on his laptop or Android phone, but he also has a chromecast attached to his TV, so I'm guessing he could cast to his TV that way.
Not knowing what the rules are, I don't want to just try it in case I exceed the number of devices and can't change for 30 days.
So ... would all these devices be "registered" if we used them all over time (not all at the same time, obviously)?
If my son were to cast from the BT Sport App on his phone to his chromecast, would that count as 2 streams and prevent me watching on my BT TV box at the same time?
this may help probably others if you try search
In thre sceanio you describe
So long as your son uses the BT Sport App then it should be fine. You viewing the Bt Sport Tv channels on your BT TV (Youview) set top box does not count as a use of the BT Sport App.
If he were to use the BT TV App then that would eat into your registered devices for that BT TV app so make sure he uses the right app.
It would count as 1 stream as whatever device your son is hosting the app on counts. The app will relay the stream to Chromecast for displaying on the big screen
That's not how chromecast works though. The stream doesn't go to the phone first, for the phone to "relay" the stream to the TV. When you cast to chromecast, the phone hands over responsibility to the chromecast, and the chromecast takes over the streaming of the content. That's why it counts as a separate device.
