Worth changing your mobile phone provider for I changed my mobile phone provider from Orange to BT Mobile, specifically because BT Sport 1 is free to BT Mobile customers via this app, and the entire BT Sport Pack is available for £5 a month. Initially the picture quality wasn't worth paying the £5 a month for, but this latest update is a massive improvement. I would say it is now definitely worth moving your mobile phone to BT Mobile to watch Premier League matches for free on BT Sport 1 via this app, and I am even beginning to consider taking the entire BT Sport Pack for £5 a month, to watch Champions League and Europa League matches as well.
Tidy app with potential. Firstly I was impressed that I got it for free for 6 months via EE and it's food for thought wether I should continue with the subscription after the 6 months. The problem is that it won't cast at all. There simply isn't the cast box in the top right hand corner. I have a chromecast and netflix, bbc, YouTube and all other compatible apps work fine but nothing on the bt sport app. I've uninstalled / reinstalled the app, still nothing. It works fine otherwise but just wish they'd fix this.
Good Works perfectly fine for me and I'm casting the screen to my TV right, which is perfect while I wait for BT TV and Broadband to be set up. For those having issues with the cast button, there is a known issue with Samsung phones. Try casting via the main Google Cast app first and then casting via the BT Sports after, the button should return. Alternatively, reboot the Chromecast device. The BBC Iplayer app has the exact same issue.
Not bad Got 6 months free through EE. Seems to work OK and although there is no cast button it's possible if you know what you are doing. I am baseball fan and ESPN quality is not bad but BT 1, 2 and 3 sport quality is poor. Disappointed big time I can't watch live on my tablet. If this was made possible and the quality improved I would seriously think of paying after the 6 months free.
EE Trial I know I've got this free for 6 months but no Chromecast support and nothing of any real interest for me to bother watching it. I'll be cancelling the free subscription long before the free period runs out in January and stick to SKY sports.
Got the app via EE's offer of 6 months free. Can't link the EE account to BT. Phoned BT and finally got through to be told it is a known issue. Should get a text in 48 hours. The community shield is tomorrow which was a huge part of why I wanted it. BT please sort it out. No good having exclusive coverage or offering free access if there's nothing to see.
Ahead of the next football season, there were a few more updates we wanted to make:
- More efficient image loading on the TV Guide
- Improvements to our enhanced player
- A few subtle UI tweaks and bug fixes.
