Any help would be most appreciated.

On your pc or plug your laptop into the tv. Can't be done otherwise. You can't download the required software (silverlight) to the tv.

don't waste your time looking - redsnapper is right - you cannot get silverlight on your samsung smarttv

 

you need to go to MYBT and sign up for btsport so you can get app and online access

If you've got a Samsung smartphone or tablet you can get the games via the app and then send them to your TV screen using Screen Mirroring (TV) and All Share Cast (phone.) That's what I've been doing and it works quite well, a bit stuttery sometimes but better than nothing.

 

Now if only BT would release an app for Smart TVs...

Similarly, if you have an iPhone or iPad and Apple TV you can do mirroring.

Was at a friend's house this morning who also has a Samsung TV and Total Broadband.  They have not applied to get BT Sport yet but were watching it last night and it appeared on their TV listing guide today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nothing amazing, unexpected or exciting about that.

 

There is a free, unencrypted Bt Sport channel at channel 57 which just shows adverts. There are two further encrypted channels which will show on the Freeview EPG but which you'll never be able to view on your TV because they're only avalable for BT Vision+ box owners with a BT Sport viewing card.

If you can receive BT Sport over broadband you are a very lucky simonlala. If I could receive Sport I would purchase a vga to HDMI converter to connect to my smart TV at cost of £40-50.
