I have activated BTSport this morning but have been unable to watch any channels on the BTSport online player. I am using Google Chrome, Windows 7.
I am able to sign in however, when I click 'Watch Now' on the BTSport 1/2 or ESPN, the next page fails to load and I receive the following error:
Internal Server Error

Running windows 7 with both explorer and firefox. Interestingly my android app works fine on my phone so it seems PC/windows specific.

Speaking to support last night they say I have to use Windows 8. I too can watch on my iphone but not on my pc or laptop. I am running Windows 7 and goggle chrome. I have tried IE 10 and updating silverlight. I would like to resolve this issue for the big match on Sunday.

I'm sure you don't need Windows 8 for it to work. I know plenty of people on Windows 7 who used it fine.
None of the error codes listed in the BT Sport Help Section are of any use, I can't even got onto the page on which an error code might appear.
Very dissapointed with the customer service from BT Sport so far, the online chat answers have been completely bizzaire and change completely depending on who you speak to.

We are flagging this issue to the product team. If you can send us an email using the contact the mods link in my profile I can have it chased up.

Following my forum post above and follow up email to the mods, I'm happy to confirm that BT have resolved my query.
Turns out I was using incorrect log-in details, in particular the email address I was using to log-in (my new BT email) was not the correct one. I should have been using the email address and password I used when initially signing up to BT Internet.
For those having similar issues, it's worth double checking that you're using the correct email! (The support team should be able to confirm whether the log-in details you are trying to use are correct).
Thanks again to Stuart and Neil of the support team for their prompt assistance.
