Even if your only a mobile customer though?

They block you using apps on any other device you see other than off your mobile phone

with ee i couldn't even watch on tablet - could only watch in device their sim was in - they wanted £10 extra a month to cast, watch on multiple devices etc so as i said went back to BT knowing from previous use that i could at least watch on the tablet .. let me know how you figure it out or i will let you know if i get there sooner

Ye I will do thanks.

Up to now I'm just able to watch on my mobile

I haven't tried a tablet yet but I did try my laptop and the app on my Samsung tv and they wouldn't log me in. I'll go try PS4 now

agreed - does not work via laptop on their online player ... think bcos that is not an app based access point ..

no we switched to vodafone and i lost my £5 monthly discount doing so - ah okay that is sad news ... i considered getting pro iPad just for the bigger screen but that seems expensive way of solving this

Working on my kids fire tab. Bigger screen than my phone. Slight progress

Maybe some way to cast the fire tab or your iPad to TV ? BT probably block it though from being able to cast to tv

Rather than cast can you mirror your phone screen to tv? That's what I used to do, but that was before they started charging extra for casting.

I could try. I think you can mirror the fire tab if your tablet has that option. Just mirror it from the tablet to your firestick on TV. My kid has the fire HD 8 and no mirror option on it so that's that idea out the window but I'll try my phone to the TV now
I'm an EE customer and have the BT Sport App on my mobile and PC, so if I want to watch it on the big screen I can just do that via the PC. Have you tried seeing if you can log on via the PC app?

Yup it's working on my laptop via the app but can't see any way to mirror to tv

Maybe just plug in via hdmi cable

Yep, if your laptop has a HDMI output you can just plug it straight in to your TV (you might possibly have to go to the display settings in Windows control panel to configure it but most likely it will jai be plug and play). If you don't have the HDMI output then you'll be looking at some kind of VGA connector but hooking it up via your TV's HDMI will be the easiest method rather than mirroring.

I just went into apps in Windows on my Lenovo laptop jumpman and downloaded it.

I should mention the picture quality was terrible when using this option.

Watching it on my fire tab seemed best option. You can mirror the fire tab to your firestick aswell

HDMI to tv is the best and most reliable option.
