Re: BT Sport on my Samsung Smart TV

The reason this works is because the stream/video doesn't go via the ipad. The ipad tells the chromecast the stream/video you want to watch and the chromecast goes and gets it. From then on, you can use your ipad for other things or even turn it off. The ipad can (still) be used to remote control the stream/video in terms of Pause, play skip etc. This is why (so far) there are only a handful of apps that work with chromecast.

Even though there's options for streaming, I'm still surprised and disappointed that there isn't an app available for Samsung TVs yet.

Why would Samsung want an app which was only useable by a tiny % of its TV customers - you have to have BT Broadband to watch the channels - or BT want to spend the cash coding one?

Re: BT Sport on my Samsung Smart TV

I realise i am a bit late joining this conversation.  But I have just got BT Infinity and BT Sports.  I have a humax you view box - can I get BT Sports through this without paying the extra £5 per month?

Re: BT Sport on my Samsung Smart TV

from what I was told this is true also for Youview on an Android smart TV eg Sony KD43X8309

 

I wonder if the BT App works on the Android OS of this TV?
