I got a hisense sero 8 tablet as a backup and it's on 4.4. It was very cheap and it's fine for basic stuff. I tried to install the BT sport app and it says it's not compatible even though is above the 4.3 cut off.
I managed to get hold of a copy of the app though a third party website, which I know isn't recommended but it did install and worked but the when it was upon full screen it was a bit jittery, but watchable.
It might be that the internal memory or processor speed, not just the software version may have a bearing in wether it is compatable or not but YouTube, etc etc work ok full screen no problem.
Its very frustrating BT.
I have an Asus Zenpad 10 and the app works, it's just watching the video is terrible, it's ok whilst it's pixelated, then once it's buffered it's really stuttery :-( This is the tablet on top of the tv stand, you can see the HH5 below on infinity option 2, download speed is 6.3 meg a second.
Youtube video of the quaity of playback. Filmed on a samsung galaxy S6 edge which works perfectly.
@DanRSturbo I believe you have posted on what appear to be similar playback isues on that asus zenpad with sports streaming on sky go and indeed there seems to be issues reported on the sky community forum running from december through to now with this device. Not sure if there are Asus support formus or community around but may be worth seeing if there is any knowledge or fixes out there.
CELLO tablet T1144
New Customer & unable to download app because it says device "isn't compatible" ??
Tablet running Android 4.4.2 but app only requires 4.3 onwards??
Having the same issue as @DanRSturbo
did you manage to find a solution yet?
I'm Using multiple android devices and getting a really annoying issue.
When the stream hasn't cleared up yet and is all blurry/pixelated, it seems to be smooth even though you can't really see anything. Then once the stream turns to HD, it suddenly becomes jerky and stutters non stop.
I am running Android 6 and am getting around 70-80MBps on a fibre line. The device isn't slowing and i have run cpu monitors to make sure of that. The only issue seems to be the app istelf.
Everyone i speak to at BT says they either aren't an expert and can't help...or they just don't respond
Does anyone know if there is a way to trick the browser into not knowing you're on an android device and then being able to watch the stream through their website rather than the app?
