Unknown letters in the top corner

Go to solution

This is a very strange one, but in the top right corner of the screen, when watching BT Sport, in faint letters is an unusual code made up of lower & upper case letters. It goes off after a bit, but is quite off putting.

Has anyone else experienced this, and how can I get rid of this?

I believe it is BT trying to combat piracy by imposing a reference number that relates to your account. That way if it turns up on an illegal stream they can work out where it came from.

Sky do the same thing with the users viewing card number. It's nearly as annoying as the rectangle that appears on every sport channel, even though you are watching through your YouView box rather than an app.

Won't be long before you can't actually watch the sport because there is too much other stuff on screen! Smiley LOL

Exactly what @stereohaven said, It's a watermark to combat piracy and illegal streams.
