I have Bt sport through EE with the large screen upgrade. I have both Apps on my phone and on my smart tv.
There seems to be alot more functionality and content on the phone compared to the tv app.
I cannot pause or rewind/fastforward anything on the tv app and there isn't an option to search for programmes or find all catch up content.
Is it just that the tv App has less functionality (in which case why???) Or am I missing something?
I think the TV app is just a large screen channel as you have said. I hadn't really noticed it before myself, but there's no 360 deg views etc. I think there's a thought that the mobile apps have extra functionality so that they can be used as companion apps while viewing, it's too much faffing about syncing them up for my liking.
There is an enhanced BT sport player that is available for a range of sports events.
The large screen apps currently typically have the standard BT sport player and the live content streams are like a linear channel.
If you are using for example the Samsung Tv Bt Sport App you will not currently have a search option for content but you would be able to navigate through the the various categories displayed and discover what is available. Some catchup content that is only available in enhanced player mode may not be in the large screen app.
Same here. The Samsung BT app is very poor. It is just like watching a live channel on freeview. Typical half assed BT way of doing things, They need to take lessons from Sky when it comes to functionality and user experience.
