It should do - the Hudl is an Android device, isn't it?

The Hudl 2 is an android tablet.

 

This is from the BT site...

 

It's important that you make sure you have an eligible device or browser before taking out a subscription to BT Sport.

 

That's why I have asked the question.

I'd like to know before I order.

 

Thanks

A quick Google search suggests that the Hudl 2 is a stock Android device (running Lollipop or KitKat), and has the Google Play Store which means you should be able to download the BT Sport app.

You could always ask Tesco to be sure, their Hudl tech support appears to still be live even though they don't sell them any more: http://ttselectrical.custhelp.com/app/hudl

You are right to check though, my Kindle Fire is Android based but cannot access the Google Play Store so I can't use the BT Sport app on it.

The Hudl 2 can access Google Playstore, so I reckon I can download the app ok.

The issue is whether the BT App will work on my Hudl.

 

Thanks for the reply

If you can access the store and download it then it will work as it is the same app for all Android devices, as long as the Hudl hasn't been jailbroken/rooted.

So is this not true?

Seems sensible advise to me.

I've looked at a wide range of information available (much of it from Hudl 2 users talking about the app in the BT Care forums), and everything I have read suggests the app will work fine for you.

If you want a definitive answer from someone at Plusnet on this then you will need to wait for one of their staff to reply.

Good luck.

Sounds promising.

Thanks for you help.

Like to get confirmation from a Plusnet  adviser though.

No fear - the Hudl2 will definitely run BT Sport App!

I've just powered mine up, loaded the app and logged in without issue. Currently watching the live WTA tennis on BT Sport 1.

Edit: popped in a picture for you.
