Full BT Sport 4KHDR with no BT broadband - what are the options?

So I currently have BTtv Max4K option with BT broadband - have no interest in NowTV.

For the app with have the 4 device setting and can stream BT Sport Ultimate in 4K/HDR so no need for the BT box.

We currently have a good deal from BT but the package is coming to the end of the contract and the increase will be massive compared to current cost. We don't actually need the BTtv services or the BT Internet - and have never connected a phone.

Is the following a possible option going forward and any idea what the cost will be?

Access to the full BT Sports package in HD via streaming only but to up to 4 devices - with the addition of being able to stream Ultimate in 4K/HD.

you may be confusing the BT TV App Extra with the BT Sport App.  The BT TV App. Extra has the 4 registered device limit whereas the BT Sport App ( which can provide up to 4K and HDR) is restricted to a maximum of  2 simultaneous streams.

If you don't have BT broadband the only option for BT Sport is either on Sky tv or with the monthly pass for the apps etc. The monthly pass is £25 per month & according to the website includes 4k etc

It will be the App Extra then as we have 4 devices - it was offered as a free upgrade.

So £25pm will give me the Ultimate channel in 4K/HDR (via streaming) with 4 devices still available?

On the monthly pass option on the website it states 4K is available on compatible devices & terms & conditions states as follows with regards to devices

"BT Sport monthly pass £25 a month. 30 day minimum term. Renews automatically until cancelled. You can only access BT Sport in the UK. Includes HD content, minimum line speed and compatible device needed. Maximum of 2 devices may be used simultaneously."

Will still need the 4 devices option - 4K/HDR is working fine currently with the apps not using the BT Internet.

So £25 will not cover all bases required it would seem.  The cost is then creaping up to our current (offer) monthly charge which is covering everything.

Do you watch on all 4 devices at one time just now? All that I posted earlier means is that you can watch on 2 different devices at the same time

Without a BTtv box - when it is EPL it will be 3 devices at once.

Doesn't look like it's possible to get what you're after then
