Will I see a message telling me I'm about to watch over 3G or 4G?

Yes, if you’re using the BT Sport App on a mobile device you'll get a message saying you're about to watch over a mobile connection, so could be charged data costs by your mobile provider.



If you watch the live BT Sport channels using your BT Broadband or a BT Wi-fi hotspot, it won't count towards your usage allowance.

If you've got broadband from another supplier, that might count towards your usage allowance.
