Several months after launching its standalone BT Sport Monthly Pass, and just in time for the Premier League’s return, BT Sport’s app is now available on NOW TV devices.
BT Sport, which is available in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, normally broadcasts sporting events from around the world – from exclusive rights to live Premier League games, to UEFA Champions League, ESPN and even cricket matches from Australia.
Up until last December, BT Sport was only available to either BT Broadband customers or as an addon for the “traditional” pay-TV subscriptions like Sky and Virgin Media.
Then, BT Sport launched its “Monthly Pass” option, which is available to all customers on a month-to-month basis without a long-term contract, at £25/month. (see our full guide on how to watch BT Sport online).
BT Sport is a streaming service, and therefore requires a compatible streaming device and a broadband connection.
At launch, BT Sport’s Monthly Pass supported smartphones (iOS and Android), select Samsung Smart TV models, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Playstation 4 and the XBOX One.
Today, BT announced the addition of the NOW TV devices. The NOW TV Smart Box will also provide support for BT Sport Ultimate, with select programming in UltraHD (4K).
NOW TV is a streaming service from Sky, which includes passes for Entertainment (TV programmes), movies, kids and sports – and they also sell their own streaming devices, which work with some of the other streaming services as well – Netflix, YouTube, ITV Hub and others.
The NOW TV models which will support the new BT Sport app, are:
- Now TV 4K Box
- Now TV Smart Stick
- Now TV Legacy (black box)
- Now TV Smart box (blue logo)
More BT Sport On-Demand Content
Along with the release of the new NOW TV, BT Sport are also expanding the on-demand content which will be available for their streaming customers.
Customers can now access classic matches and events from the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, Premier League, Emirates FA Cup and more.
Full event replays are also now available, enabling fans to re-watch Premier League games in full, soon after they are broadcast on BT Sport.
