streaming BT sport on chromecast

I have been mirroring BT sports from my laptop to my TV using chromecast but don't know how to stop streaming BT sport so the boxing has been on tv for days

How do I make it stop please?

Don't know how you're doing that but, anyway, turning off the the power to the Chromecast should cut it off.

Strange. Try restarting your router.

How about CTRL/ALT/DELETE (or a RESTART) on the laptop?

If I understand you correctly, the SOURCE of the boxing would be the BT Sport APP on your laptop.

Ah, that's not the BTSport APP. Rather it is simply the internet.

Check your YouTube settings, perhaps turning off your Link to TV and linking again?

thanks for that but if it's the internet then why did it continue streaming when my laptop was turned off?

So, the laptop was turned off rather than simply closing the monitor housing?

I yield for sometimes even my 40+ years exposure to computers, including 35 years of PC use, leaves me completely flummoxed!

Sorry.

It may help others if you can advise whether your TV Chromecast is via a dongle or whether built-in to your TV.  If the latter, then make/model of TV may also help.
