Using Chromecast with BT Sports app

Latest upgrade of BT Sports app appears to have broken casting from tablet to TV via Chromecast.

Not sure whether this is deliberate by BT to squeeze more money out of customers or just a software glitch. Anyone else seen this?

If it is a deliberate change then I 'll be cancelling the app access!!

Having talked to BT Sports tech help guy ,it appears that the latest upgrade has blocked the casting option from Amazon tablets with BT Sports app sideloaded; a pain in the proverbial a*se!! Going to have to find a "standard" Android phone/tablet -may have to beg an old phone off of a relative!!

As an aside, it looks like they may have disabled BT Sports app on Android TV boxes as well -having tried that yet!!

Re: Using Chromecast with BT Sports app

Managed to get casting to Chromecast going again by loading BT Sports app on old Android phone donated to me!!

Also managed to get BT Sports on Android TV box working on 2nd TV, BUT have disabled auto updates in case that gets broken by BT !

Reading thru some of the threads on the BT forums ,it looks like they have closed a loophole which allowed some phones to mirror to TVs even if the subscriber hadn't paid the necessary shekels to BT.
