BT TV App Extra do I need to bother.

Go to solution

I've just had a message on my Samsung smart TV offering this BT TV app extra, but as I only watch one of the four BT Sport channels I don't think it's any benefit to me.  Also my TV does not support this BT app so would that mean I would need another be of kit if I was to change my mind.

 Hi @SpottyDog

TV App Extra, if you subscribe gives you access to any content you have purchased or if you have a BT TV subscription to the extra channels included your TV package. It is avalible for the newer Samsung Smart TV..

Hi Dean007

Thanks, as I only occasionaly watch BT Sport using powerline adaptors and never purchase any content and my Samsung smart TV is to old I will not be bothering with this free app.  I'm always a bit nervous clicking on BT free offers !!!

BT TV App Extra is always there if you want it, you can still use the free version on Phones and Tablets if you need it.

The email and on screen announcement seems a bit devious to me. The advert is for a “Free BT app”. What it doesn’t explain is that the app connects to subscription based services.

The basic BT TV app is free, and can be used on two devices. The App Extra has additional features which includes large screen tv, and adding to four devices but has a subscription.

I have not seen the advert, but they could be promoting their BT App for managing your account which is a different app to the TV app.
