Hi @LukeJ1990 

Unfortunately at the moment there is no BT Sport on the NowTV service Smiley Sad.

There is a cross supply agreement between BT & NowTV where the BT Sport App is maybe coming to the NowTV boxes & stick.

Where this information is still a little sketchy at the moment and no official date has been confirmed apart from it's apparently going to happen sometime during 2019.

I would have thought if it was going to happen then this week would have been the ideal time.  BT have Champions League + Europa League + FA Cup in the next few days and could have sold a bundle of passes or at least got people in on a trial.   Maybe Sky and BT are holding fire until 6 nations is off terrestrial and F1 starts.

I cancelled BT Sport on Virgin hoping that something would have been announced, but guess I will be going back in early March and stumping up £18/month for another couple of months.

Re: BT sport

It has already been confirmed the BT Sport app is coming to NowTV devices. All anyone knows for certain is that the cross supply agreement will be up and running in time for the 2019/20 EPL season. 

There are links available if you search for them. I'm having too lazy a night to go looking now.

 

BT don't do Sports passes like NowTV do. It will be a contract, most likely 18 months for BT Sport, unless Sky can improve on the current deal.

If you want access to 'Eurosport' (as well as 'Sky Sports' via one of the 'NOW TV' passes) you can always pick up a Roku Express - currently £24 from Amazon UK, AO, and Tesco... or £24.99 from Argos, Media Streaming Market, and Very, if any of those are better for you - because there's Roku channels (i.e. apps) for both Amazon's "Prime Video" and "TVPlayer" through which you can watch 'Eurosport', although FWIW the one I prefer is Amazon's because it has 'Eurosport Player' with all the "Extra" options, whereas TVPlayer's app only gives access to 'Eurosport 1' and 'Eurosport 2' as part of their package. The only caveat with using "Prime Video" for 'Eurosport Player' is that you have to be an Amazon Prime member before you can subscribe to 'Eurosport Player' (at an additional cost) but it's been faultless for me so far and the picture quality is great - something that's not always the case when streaming content from 'TVPlayer', in my experience.

 

As others have mentioned, 'BT Sport' should be available by "mid-2019" as a separate app in the Roku-Powered™ 'App Store' found on 'NOW TV' devices and, as a Roku channel (app) in it's own right, I would also expect to see it made available on Roku devices in the UK at around the same time. Were I to hazard a guess, I would say this will be around June/July time... but, with the FA already having confirmed the start date of the 2019/20 PL Season as  Saturday 10th August 2019, I would not expect it to be any later than the first week in August.

Re: BT sport

Far from an ideal solution I know, but through EE I can watch bt sport for £5pm on my phone. There’s also an option to cast it on to your tv for £15pm - both of these came with three months free trial. depending on what network your on, there may be a similar offer which might be worth looking into. 

 

Like I said it’s far from ideal watching it on a small phone screen, but it’s a cheap and contract free version that could tide you over until it becomes available on nowtv - plus if you’re able to get the free trial and/or streaming then happy days and you don’t have to miss the football!

Not in so far as I am aware. I've tried messaging 'BT Sport' through social media but they didn't even bother replying... which is annoying, to say the least, given we've now been waiting since the end of 2017 - when the whole "cross supply of channels" agreement was announced - and they originally said they expected it to be available from "early 2019" which (as we're now in the middle of April) is pretty much over at this point. 

 

As mentioned previously, I would now expect a more realistic timeframe to be around the start of the 2019/20 football season... but there's no guarantee of this.

Re: BT sport

Do you need a separate subscription  to access the bt sports channels or will it come under the same subscription as Sky Sports. If is separate how much will it cost.
