@kevinspearson 

Did they state it would be a downloadable app, or part of software update that automatically downloads it?

My parents have a Now TV stick and I know my dad would welcome this addition!

FYI that I do not work for NOW, just a NOW customer trying to help

My apologies looks like i was told incorrect info - 

 

The deal is the latest in a series of content partnerships for Sky, with the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, Netflix and Warner Media all entering into new agreements. In 2020, Sky will also start building Sky Studios Elstree, Europe’s leading production Studio resulting in 2000 new jobs and £3bn production investment in UK creative sector expected in first five years.

NOW TV customers will soon be able to enjoy BT Sport on their NOW TV Smart Stick or NOW TV Smart Box with Voice Search, when the BT Sport app launches in the app store later this spring.

 

(that is from the bottom of an email i just had from sky tv)

So that sounds like the £25/month BT sport on a new device.  Already on Chromecast.  

 

Looks like I will be cancelling Virgin Media in August. Happy days.

It as been a joke from the start, I would switch back to BT if they weren't so extortionate, apart from the football and formula 1 on now tv the rest of sports channels aren't worth paying for, who gives a toss about NFL, and stateside horse racing.

I stream bt sports free though its not great quality at least I get to watch it, instead of waiting ages for something that doesn't appear to happen unless you live in Ireland. 

I will use it on now tv if it does arrive this century.

When is bt sport going to become active ? Rather have an offer included with now tv as I pay by bt sport direct  and it’s £25 a month. 
someone said earlier about EE casting to a big screen for £15. Don’t bother it doesn’t work and your getting ripped off big time.

Following the recent addition of the Spotify app to NOW TV devices, from today the BT Sport app is also available.

That’s a lie I just checked it’s not  in the U.K.  bt sport. Why say it’s available from today when clearly it’s not on the now tv app.

Hi @Larnie 

 

The BT Sports App is showing on my NowTV 4K Box and i am based in the UK.

 

I doubt it will be available on the white NowTV Box.

 

If you have another generation box or stick and done a System update and the BT Sports App in not showing under Apps Store "News, Weather, Sport" section then the App may take 24 to 48 hours to be pushed out onto your NowTV branded device.

@Larnie No, it's not "a lie" 🙄

 

Can I get the BT Sport app?

The BT Sport app is now available on the black NOW TV Box, the NOW TV Smart Box with HD & Freeview and the NOW TV Smart Stick.

You can download the BT Sport app through the App Store and sign in to your BT Sport account to access all 4 BT Sport channels – BT Sport 1, 2 & 3 and BT Sport ESPN.

The BT Sport subscription isn't included in any NOW TV Passes – you'll need to sign up via BT to use the app
