The following step-by-step tutorial will show you How to Watch BT Sport on FireStick. You can also use the BT TV app to stream BT Sport channels on the Fire TV (2017), Fire TV Cube (2018/2019), plus Fire TV Edition Smart TVs and soundbars.
BT Sport is one of the biggest sports television networks in the United Kingdom. Launched by the major telecommunication company BT Group, it has been airing flagship sports leagues and tournaments since the year of 2013.
In case you didn’t know, BT Sport has official rights to broadcast 52 matches from every season of English Premier League, and 351 games from UEFA Europa League and UEFA Champions League. You can also watch the National League, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and several other football competitions.
If you are a BT TV subscriber, then chances are you also pay £15 extra for the BT Sport package. While you can watch matches of your favorite football clubs live on your TV with the BT TV set-top box, it’s also possible to stream sports content on-demand from the official BT TV app.
For those who are looking forward to watching BT Sport on Firestick device, we have prepared this guide to help them do just that in two different ways.
Watch BT Sport on Firestick with the BT TV App
The official BT TV app for Fire TV devices has gone through significant changes in the last few months, which includes not only a polished user interface but also fixing app-breaking bugs and adding BT Sport in the lineup of streamable channels.
You can stream ten BT Sport channels from the BT TV app, which does have BT Sport, BT Sport Extra, and BT Sport ESPN. One of the perks of using the BT TV app is the addition of on-demand content, which includes highlights and replays of several sports events that are broadcasted on BT Sport channels.
However, Amazon Fire TV users simply can’t use the BT TV app for free. Over your existing BT TV subscription, you will have to pay an extra £5/month for the BT TV App Extra add-on to use the BT TV app on Firestick. You can either contact BT customer support to add it to your subscription or visit bt.com/tv/appextra/ to get it from the BT Store.
The standalone BT Sport app isn’t available for Fire TV devices, so the BT TV app is your only option for streaming BT Sport channels.
