Hi, I’ve recently upgraded to bt sport large screen, and was wondering if there was anyway that I could cast the app to my lg smart tv. Also are bt any closer to getting the app onto lg? Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
There's currently no option to view BT Sport on LG TVs without a connected device I'm afraid (e.g. Fire TV, Apple TV, PlayStation, XBox, etc).
One is coming, but I cannot comment on when.
Disappointing, but thank you. Would I be able to watch the app on my tv if I bought chromecast? Thanks
If you have an iPhone or iPad go to settings and give the BT Sport app permission to access the local network.
Then launch the app and start watching your chosen match.
To switch playback to the big screen, click on the Airplay icon (at the top right of the display) and select your TV in the panel which appears. It only works for the standard player, not the enhanced version. It might take a couple of attempts for the connection to sort itself out but it definitely works
You will need an LG TV from 2019 onwards for this though, they were the first to support AirPlay 2.
My 2016 model does appear as a Chromecast device, so casting in that way may work on older versions, but I don't have the app to test so YMMV.
Failing that, Fire TV sticks are £25 (HD) and £45 (4K) at the moment on a river based online store while you wait for an official BT Sport app.
