BT Sport on TV

I have BT Sport on my pc but would like to have it on my TV via the Youview box. How do I set up the box to connect to BT Sport?

@gws20 

Not certain if you can.

 

I bought a Google ChromeCast and stream to my TV through this.

Re: BT Sport on TV

If you don’t already have an active YouView  subscription then there isn’t a way as PN have now stopped selling it.

I use my Apple TV to watch it

Re: BT Sport on TV

I have a PN subscription which I use on my pc, but cannot find BT Sport on the TV. It shows me all the Freeview programmes but I cannot find BT Sport in the apps.

Re: BT Sport on TV

I’ve adjusted my above reply for clarity - you need to have an active YouView subscription, not just the BT sport subscription.
Do you have that?

Apolgies if I seem thick but my PN package includes BT Sport which as I said I am using to access BT on my pc. Presumably when I connect to Youview it is via my PN subscription as the connection is made through my PN router.

Re: BT Sport on TV

There were three ways to get BT sport:

* YouView subscription (which also gave app/website access)
* Subscription to the app / website.
* Via Sky.

unless you bought the YouView package and not just the app access (which is the only current one for sale iirc) then there’s no way to get it via YouView anymore.

What happens when you go to channel 408 on the YouView box?
