BT Sport coming to Chromecast streaming device
For the millions of BT Retail consumers who have access to BT Sport as an inclusive part of their subscription, viewing on a tablet, phone or PC is often less than ideal and there will be many not wanting to pay for it to be added to the satellite TV subscription or embrace the YouView hardware platform.
Step into the breach the £30 Google Chromecast which plugs into a spare HDMI port on your TV and you can cast supported content for playback on your big screen.
BT Sport as of 7th April will update its Android and iOS apps to add a cast button allowing people to off-load the video stream to the Chromecast and then carry on using their tablet or phone for tweeting their reaction to action that unfolds on their TV.
The BBC iPlayer supports Chromecast too and a blog item provides a description of how the Chromecast works in terms taking over the video streaming from your mobile device.
