I know that but what I meant was will the BT channels on Sky be showing this game for free ?

Thanks

The rugby was free to view on BT sport 1 HD yesterday afternoon on my sky box so im hoping they can do the same for this.

Good find

Thanks!!

Can you stream this over their website or over the iPlayer or something?

I need to get a freeview box just for that match

I tried to watch the Leicester Champions League game that was 'free' a few weeks back on their BT website but it would only let me play if I subscribed!

Isn't bt sports free anyway?

Only if you have BT broadband, even then I think they changed it some time ago depending on the package e.g. BT TV vs just broadband.

For me with my broadband (not sure if this is everyone, you know how these 'deals' work these days) , I get BT Sports 1 only free on a tablet/phone etc, but I would have to pay £5-17 p/m for the other channels to view on the Tele. So for a skin flint like me, I tend to watch out for these Showcase games to assist with my old man's failing eyesight! I suspect these free games will diminish over the coming months, freebies are to entice you in to Pay TV yeah? To be fair, the app works great on my tablet, very clear and no buffering, but as mentioned, it doesn't cover all the games.

Do you have a chromecast? Back when I was a subscriber I was able to get the tablet to stream to the TV this way.

Although this was before the change so I don't know if they've gimped it now.

Why?



Because the champions league is practically free all the time in every country but the UK (Ireland, Spain, Portugal etc)

But you're paying for a BT service such as broadband. Others do not get it free as such.

thanks

Na, afraid not, can anyone else answer this?

Hopefully BT will not regain the rights to it when their contract ends due to the low viewing figures they're getting.

I take your point but most countries involve paying for a TV licence to view so not really free. I agree that it is not really free on BT but I had BT for my broadband before they won the football rights to the Premier League and Champions League.

​Thank you

listen you lot

I just set up my BT Showcase supplier and it's NowTV Smart Box

£35 well worth spending

I got 195 free to air channels including this baby

so this £35 box is miles better than the old NowTV boxes, black or white

you get all the free channels stuff plus pause & HDMI, ethernet connection, your NowTV stuff

plus the one I bought for £35 (posted a deal here at the time, widely available) came with 4 months Sky Cinema

they're giving them away!

Channel 100 on Virgin

​uefa have already said bt sport won't get all the games on the next contract due to small viewing figures

not free to watch tonight on my skybox, any ideas?

not working on sky 414 says I don't subscribe to this channel

I'm using the 4 month Sky Cinema deal that came with the box, the free 1 month NowTV Ents code from today, the free 1 month Sky Sports code the nice people @ NowTV gave me for my small problem

--- and watching Champions League Man City vs Barc free on BT Showcase

£35 all in
