by , last updated

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 NOW TV with Sky Sports and Sky Movies. The new large screen BT Sport app can now be downloaded to models of Samsung Smart TV's built from 2015 onwards. The large screen BT Sport app is also available on the Xbox One, Playstation 4 (PS4) and Apple TV (Fourth generation devices onwards), so it's perfect for the start of the new 2020/2021 Premier League football season on September 12th 2020.

Q.1 What's Available To Watch On The New BT Sport App On Samsung Smart TVs?

The new large screen BT Sport app on Samsung Smart TVs currently offers in full HD the following channels; BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, BT Sport 3, ESPN, BoxNation and the BT Sport Extra channels.

On-demand content, highlights, TV listings and the BT Sport 4K Ultimate channel is also available on this BT Sport app.

Q.2 How Much Does It Cost Existing BT Sport Customers To Get The App & How Do They Watch It On Their Samsung Smart TV?

The new large screen BT Sport app for Samsung Smart TV's is free for existing BT Sport customers. They simply need to download the app from the Samsung Smart TV app store and log in using their existing BT ID and password.

Q.3 How Can Non BT Sport Customers Watch The App On Their Samsung Smart TV & How Much Does It Cost?

Non BT Sport customers will first need to subscribe to BT Sport directly with BT and not through their Samsung Smart TV. The new BT Sport app is available for £15 a month with BT Superfast Fibre Broadband from £26.99 a month. Once subscribed to BT Sport, customers can download the app from the Samsung Smart TV app store and log in using their new BT ID and password. Add the new BT Sport app here.

Sky TV customers who have BT Broadband can get BT Sport on Sky TV for £15 a month. Add BT Sport on Sky TV here.

Users who do not have BT Sport or BT Broadband can now watch BT Sport on a flexible, no contract, month-by-month basis with the new BT Sport Monthly Pass. This Pass, which launched in December 2019 at a cost of £25 a month, is available to anyone and does not require a subscription to BT Broadband. It is accessible via the BT Sport app on Samsung TV's, together with Apple/Android mobile devices, Apple TV, Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) consoles, Xbox One consoles and online at btsport.com. Users must sign up first at the BT website and create their own BT ID and password which they will need to log into the app.

Are You An Existing BT Sport Customer..But Have A Samsung Smart TV Older Than 2015?

There are 4 options available to watch BT Sport on your TV:

Option 1. Plug A Laptop Into Your Samsung 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 new large screen BT Sport app or the BT TV packages designed specifically for TV.

Option 2. Plug An XBox One, PS4, Or Apple TV Into Your Samsung Smart TV

Download the new large screen BT Sport app to one of these platforms and login using your BT ID and password.

Option 3. Use A Google Chromecast Stick To Cast

The BT Sport iOS and Android apps are both Chromecast compatible, which means that provided you are a BT Broadband and/or a 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 With BT Sport & Sky Sports Options

This means connecting the supplied FREE BT 4K recorable set top box which comes with BT TV packages to your Samsung Smart TV. The entry level BT TV package which includes BT Sport and Sky Sports is currently priced from just £40 a month if you are an existing BT Broadband customer. A one-off set up fee may apply.

If you are not currently with BT, consider switching to one of the BT Broadband, Calls and TV packages below. For £61.99 a month, new customers can subscribe to a package containing BT Superfast Fibre Broadband, BT TV, BT Sport, Sky Sports and BT phone line rental - perfect for the 2020/2021 Premier League football season & beyond!
