BBC Sounds on Now TV

Just thought I'd Post this link from RXTVlog regarding a new BBC and Sky Deal....... and if you check there is a bit saying that BBC Sounds will be coming in the future to Sky and Now TV:

I've never used BBC Sounds (or the thing it replaced) but I suppose all new stuff is welcome and whenever it does appear I'm sure I'll check what it's all about.

I too am looking for the BBC Sounds app on freeview only. I can currently get it online or record it but streaming via TV would be so much easier.

@Anonymous User Welcome to the community. You only need to do this once so that the BBC Sounds app can be linked to your BBC account, after that the app will stay signed in like your laptop does. On your laptop just go to https://account.bbc.com/account/tv and enter the code shown on the app. The app will then authenticate and be signed into your BBC account automatically without you having to type your details in.
