Can’t cast BT Sport to Apple TV

I have been looking on a thread similar to this discussing the new BT sport casting function. I see that some people are having success casting through Chromecast but my issue is specifically to do with Apple TV so I am starting this thread. 

 

I have texted the SPORT to 150. Had the acknowledgement and can see the casting add-on on my EE app

 

When I watch something on the BT sport app on my phone, I can click on the blue icon and try to cast to my Apple TV. The audio casts but the video does not. 

 

Can anyone share their Apple TV casting experience? 

 

Thanks

Hi @Northerner

 

That’s thoughtful of you to post the guide. Thank you. But I had already followed it, I have the correct account and software / hardware - just that when I try to cast the video does not appear. Just the audio

Hi @mikesimm,

 

Have you checked to see if your Apple TV software is up to date?

 

Thanks

Re: Can’t cast BT Sport to Apple TV

It is thanks @James_B

 

i actually have two Apple TVs, a 3 and a 4

 

Both are up to date but neither cast video. “Something” happens as on the bottom of the TV screen it has a little box showing the title of what I am watching (so just now  it was Liverpool v Newcastle). I can hear an audio commentary from the TV but the rest of the tv Screen is just the Apple TV menu

Hi

 

I'm having exactly the same problem. I've completed the same steps and subscribed for the plugin but I can only get audio.

 

Please can you post a solution? I really want this sorted to watch the start of the premiership season!

 

Thanks

Re: Can’t cast BT Sport to Apple TV

Hi @dannypetit

I spoke to EE today who said they are aware there is a problem and are working on it. The tech promised to phone me on Saturday with an update. I will post it here if there is anything of interest

Hi @James_B

 

I posted in this thread to say that EE tell me they are aware of the issue. Are you able to find anything out and post it here. It seems odd to launch this at the start of the season without proper testing - not a dig at you just an observation 

thanks

Hi @mikesimm and @dannypetit,

 

Are you both able to cast from other apps to your Apple TV successfully?

 

Thanks

Hi @James_B

On Friday your helpline asked me to speak to Apple for advice which I did

 

They took me through a load of diagnostics and one of them was this list

 

We tried different formats, different hdmi cables , different phones, different software but all no good and no video

If I haven’t already said , I can cast fine with other apps - just not BT sport through EE

 

I notice a few people suggest removing the add on then putting it back again. Any thoughts on this ?
