Okay, but could be so much better

Happy customerC

Updated to Version 3.0.3 yesterday. Visually very impressive. However, it runs significantly slower than the previous version. I’ve now had time to try all the features and all work fine. So in general a good app. But could be so much better if the developers incorporated into the app YouView Box Remote controllability, similar to that incorporated into the Sky TV app and other providers. I don’t know how difficult this would be but it would make life so much easier being able to control BT TV from ones Smart Phone, especially when searching Catch Up TV, it’s like sending a text message with an original mobile phone, several presses before reaching the letter you want, and heaven forbid if you type the wrong letter, you have to work out which button to press to delete it🙂. Any thoughts appreciated.

Hi. Thanks for the positive feedback and taking the time to give us your feature suggestions. These are good ideas and are on the list of things we'd like to add to the app over time. Watch this space!

Furious paying customer!


Having been a longtime subscriber to BT, I've always enjoyed watching the sport through the BT Sport app. The new update is a massive disappointment and now I have trouble watching the sports I PAY FOR (BT- there's money coming from paying customers- are you listening?).
Instead of watching rugby I'm now spending time
a) downloading an app
b) logging in to my account (I was already logged in to the old but never mind...I'll do it again because BT have commanded me...)
c) oh, wait. I can't watch anyway because now I apparently have too many devices registered to it! 2 devices is the limit! On a train- phone. In a wi-if area- iPad. At home- computer if I can't be at TV. It used to be so convenient. And if I want to change my 2 devices? THIRTY DAYS TO CHANGE THE REGISTERED DEVICES. ARE YOU SERIOUS? Is BT really that incompetent that these can't be changed instantly- in fact why only 2 devices at all? Why should I change them when they were already registered under the old app? And we're we warned about these changes in advance so we could prepare?
I want a refund. But I bet that's not coming because that would mean considering the customers.

Hi. Thanks for your feedback. For the best experience in watching BT Sport, you should continue to use the BT Sport app as it is designed specifically to accommodate sports fans. Due to content provider restrictions, there is a limit on how many devices can be registered at once. Furthermore the content providers insist on only one change of device within 30 days. We are forced to adhere to these rules, rather than any incompetence.

Need to follow in Sky’s footsteps.


This has potential to be a good app... however... the layout is layer ok, you can watch certain channels live. But the main problem which is the most important. When you “record” from the app, it does not transfer to the box. So I’ll come home to watch the football, but it’s not been recorded. I tried recording it from the same WiFi network, and still the same result. If they can fix this problem, i will give them 4 stars. *update I should be able to watch all channels I subscribe to. It’s frustrating that I can’t watch sky sports on the go, after they charge nearly £40 for 2 ( but 1 is always offline) channels.

Thank you for your constructive feedback, and what we have to do to get 4 stars. We're working really hard in this area to improve it for everyone, so hopefully you'll have a better experience soon.
