BT Sport app for Xbox 360 and PS3.

I've read that there will be a BT Sport app for Android and iOS (they should also support Windows Phone). But I would like to see an app for Xbox 360 and the PS3 (and their soon to be launched replacements). They should also support other STBs and smart TVs. 

I've got a feeling that they will only put it on the YouView and Vision + boxes. They should do the same thing with BT TV and the 18 extra channels for Infinity customers.

Re: BT Sport app for Xbox 360 and PS3.

The ability to watch BT Sport on the "big screen" would be a huge bonus. For those of us who (only) have a PS3 it would be great if a "geek" could show us how. I'm guessing it should be possible (am I missing the bleedin' obvious here?) as PS3 does have an internet browser.

Similarly, would there be some (cheap!) way of seeing on a TV (via PS3?) whatever can be receieved on something like a Nexus 7?

I was just thinking exactly the same thing. Can you use the web browser on the PS3 to view the BT Sport stream on your TV? I suppose it will depend on exactly which protocol and encoding they use to transmit it and whether the PS3 browser supports it and any necessary plug-ins. I don't think BT have released any details yet, but I may be wrong.

According to this help page BT say they will keep an eye on the console market in future.

It says you need to have the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in installed and does say it will work on smart TV's that support that.

You wouldnt be able to use the PS3 browser as it doesnt support Silverlight.

Your best bet would be a PC or laptop with hdmi out connected to your tv
