Can I Watch BT Sport On My Samsung Smart TV?

BT Sport

Samsung Smart TVs offer a range of built-in apps to stream films, TV and live sport, including the likes of Netflix and NOWTV with Sky Sports and Sky Movies. However, there is currently no BT Sport app specifically built for Samsung Smart TVs. It's not all bad news though, as there's still 4 ways you can watch BT Sport on a Samsung Smart TV. Read on below for full details. Alternatively, quickly check how your current broadband deal compares with the cheapest in your area by entering your postcode on our BBC recognised broadband comparison page.

Why Do Samsung Smart TVs Not Have A Built-In BT Sport App?

This is a BT business decision that would have taken into account the number of BT Broadband customers with Samsung Smart TVs and the development costs of building a suitable BT Sport app. BT is also keen to grow its own TV subscriber base.

Can I Watch BT Sport Through The Internet Browser On My Samsung Smart TV?

No, the BT Sport online player currently uses Microsoft Silverlight software that is not supported by the internet browsers built into Samsung Smart TVs.

So, How Can I Watch BT Sport On My Samsung Smart TV?

There are 4 options:

Option 1. BT Sport On Freeview Channel 115

Tune into Freeview channel 115, the BT Sport Showcase channel. This is free to watch and will broadcast 12 UEFA Champions League matches and 14 UEFA Europa League matches live this season. See our BT Sport Showcase Schedule And Fixtures guide for more information.

Option 2. Plug A Laptop Into Your Smart TV

Existing BT Broadband customers with a BT Sport subscription can use an HDMI lead to plug their laptop into their Samsung Smart TV.

The picture quality of the BT Sport matches transferred to a large TV screen will be ok, but not as good as the BT TV packages designed specifically for TV.

Option 3. Use Apple TV Or A Google Chromecast Stick To Cast

The BT Sport iOS and Android apps are both Apple TV and Chromecast compatible, which means that provided you are a BT Broadband and BT Sport customer, you should be able to cast/stream BT Sport from your smartphone or tablet to your Samsung Smart TV.

Option 4. Sign Up To A BT TV Package

This means connecting the supplied FREE BT YouView box which comes with BT TV packages to your Samsung Smart TV. The entry level BT TV Starter package which includes BT Sport is currently £6 a month if you are an existing BT Broadband customer. A one-off set up fee of £50 may apply.

If you are not currently with BT, consider switching to one of the BT Broadband, Calls and TV packages below. BT Sport is included in most packages for no additional fee.
