Finding and watching live programmes on the BT TV App - Samsung Smart TV

To find live channels, go to the 'TV Channels' section of the app. You'll see a grid of programmes currently live on TV, with the blue 'progress bar' showing the status of the programme. You can see programme information by pressing the red button on any programme tile.

Channels are split out by genre, and are then shown in the order they display in the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG).

To see only those channels which are available for you to watch, turn the 'free-to-me' toggle button to 'On' by pressing the green button on your remote.

Programmes with a 'pink ticket' icon in the right-hand corner aren't available as part of your existing subscription, and will require a package upgrade or separate purchase to watch.
