BT Sport is available to watch in more ways than ever before thanks to our large screen app being available on a whole host of devices.

These include PlayStation, Xbox, Fire TV, Android TV, NOW TV, Apple TV devices and many more with the full list below.

Allowing access to BT Sport 1 HD, BT Sport 2 HD, BT Sport 3 HD, ESPN HD, BoxNation and all of the BT Sport Extra channels, the app is available on all platforms to existing BT Sport customers at no extra charge*.

As well as the live channels, the app also includes exclusive on-demand content and highlights across our huge range of sports.

If you've not already downloaded it, what are you waiting for?

Subscribers can also watch selected programming on BT Sport Ultimate in stunning 4K UHD with HDR on certain devices - full list in the table below.

Ultimate will ensure the maximum possible viewing experience for users - whatever the device they are using - dependent on the device model and internet connectivity.

Customers will be able to access BT Sport without the need for a set-top box, view content via a second screen at home and allow those with a digital subscription to watch on a big screen, simply by visiting the home page or app stores on your devices.

The app is free to download and existing customers can use their BT Sport subscription login to view content immediately.

Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer division, said: “We’re creating even more ways for our customers to watch their favourite sport in stunning high definition, wherever they are.

“We’re working to offer our customers unrivalled choice, with the best content, the smartest devices and the latest technology through partnerships with the world’s most innovative companies."

Innovating viewing experiences has always been integral to BT Sport and we have further exciting enhancements planned.

BT Sport is developing plans for what is often termed 'object-based broadcasting', which will enable viewers to personalise and control some aspects or objects of programmes, such as audio or graphics.

Example applications could include the ability to control stadium and crowd noise levels versus commentary and for blind or partially sighted viewers to access audio description of live sport.
