    I'm actually really happy the UFC is staying on bt sport it's meant I don't have to pay out a extra £5.99 a month to watch it. I know eleven have some football as well but I'm more than happy with the level of football bt sport provides. Can't complain at £5 a month with full access to online and app facilities.

    BT Sport announce app launch on XBOX, Samsung TVs (2015 upwards) and Apple TV (4th Gen and upwards), with 4K HDR to follow in due course...

    Nice to see it on Xbox as I know this has been much requested. Interesting to see Marc Allera say it will be a world first to have live sport in HDR, I thought SKY Q were getting HDR soon. So either they know something about release dates for both BT and SKY or maybe the HDR for SKY Q will not include live broadcasts only the streamed on demand stuff.

    Can’t edit the comment above but just re-read it and it actually says among the first so slightly different to what I thought I read first time.

    Good to see, the more the merrier. But why no Amazon Fire, Roku, or PS4 support?

    That should have said Fire TV of course, what happened to the edit button?

    EDIT: It's back. Thanks @Louise!

    I've watched numerous HDR titles from the likes of Netflix and Amazon and to be honest haven't really been blown away so far , it will be interesting to see it in live Sport.

    No idea on Roku or Fire. Playstations in due course, and LG TVs as well. Oh, and a nice juicy new YouView box.  B)

    Really, it's going to stay on YouView, wow!   :D

    According to the last press release about the change in CEO it was hinted that all the partners were signing up again but I am sure we will find out soon about that.

    <YAWN>  Of course they are. Numbers wise they blow Freeview Play out of the water.

    I see no clear reason why the broadcasters and Arqiva would want to continue funding YouView to any greater extent than that required to keep their players and services alive on the YouView box, at arm’s length going forward, as they do on just about every smart TV out there.

    Whatever was special about YouView in the beginning in 2012 isn’t so special any more, in 2019, so I think they are going to want to see it kept alive by BT and TalkTalk, who have tangibly profited from it (or should have done, at least), and not by the rest of the current partners.

    Politics as always. And?

    The truth is that won't stop them going forward, and forward they will go.
    Around this time of year, users usually get ants in their pants about renewal, which if the truth be told is usually scott. But such dark stories never come to pass. And nor will they either.

  • Got the sport "free" with the broad band many moons ago. Do believe BT are losing interest in paying vast silly amounts for UCL etc  especially as Amazon and YouTube have joined the mega rich bottomless pockets Sky in the bidding gang.

    Hi Stephen, don't read too much into Amazons foray into Premier League football. They got it (the Christmas package) for virtually nothing only because Sky & BT didn't want it, because the package is that bad.

    For info - for every £1 profit Sky make, BT make £2.50.
