Hi @Anonymous User 

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.

Definitely BT Sport channels 1-3 & ESPN. I'm assuming they'll be HD, or at least have HD as an option. I don't know if the Extra channels will be available but for NowTV to have full access to the Champions League games they would have to be made available.

Do any of you guys have your broadband with BT? If so it will be much cheaper subscribing directly via BT than paying Sky/NowTV for it. Just something to bear in mind 😀

Seems like a one way street. launch on February 21...

NOW TV has been fully integrated with the BT TV platform, meaning customers can now watch, pause, rewind and record premium Sky Entertainment and Sky Sports content on the BT TV platform.

Big Sport (£40) combines the BT Sport with the Sky Sports channels...

 

Nice, but can Now TV customers watch, pause, rewind and record(?) BT Sport content along with Sky Sports for £40/month ?

Good spot!

 

At the same time as NOW TV is made available to BT TV customers, Sky will be offering BT Sport directly to their customers from February 21.

 

To me it certainly now sounds like if its going to be through Now TV, it will be via a Pass watched directly in the Now TV app. If that is the case, would it also have its catch-up and be 1080p/50fps by default?

I read that as Sky offering that rather than Now TV.  So there may be a £40 BT Sport + Sky Sports package on Sky, but I don’t think that is a given with Now TV. I guess all will be clear tomorrow.

@starman73 

You couldn't be more correct. with Now TV and BT sports nothing has been confirmed how it will be implemented. All I was doing was speculating based on the Irish set up. 

 

Fingers crossed there is some form of news or confirmation tomorrow of how BT sport will be "packaged" on Now TV.

Hi @Anonymous User 

 

I had a chat with a Senior NowTV Staff Member yesterday about this and he confirmed that non BT customers will have access via the NowTV App on the Youview Platform (across most boxes) to watch content via your Cinema, Entertainment, Sports, Kids & Hayu Passes where i am in the same boat has you not being a BT customer.

 

When i asked him about is the above going to happen tomorrow the 21st of February inline with the BT live switch on date he wouldn't confirm and just said very soon for non BT customers.

Hi @Anonymous User 

 

I think it's going to be very soon and not months or years where i have been told to keep an eye out for further news updates in the next coming couple of weeks.

 

If it was years or months i doubt NowTV would have recently added this last paragraph on this linked article below.

Hi @Anonymous User 

 

I am going to check the NowTV App tomorrow morning just in case the update miraculously appears on my Youview box for non BT customers (you never know).

 

Otherwise i will have to be patient and have to wait a little longer where i am expecting the NowTV App to be updated very soon for non BT customers based on the reliable information i was given from a trustworthy NowTV Senior Staff Member who has always given me correct information in the past when and where he can.

 

You could ask live chat, but i would guess they wouldn't go off script and just say coming very soon.
