BT adds new on-the-go and multiscreen features to TV app

BT has added new features to its BT TV app, including the ability to download and access content on the go, as well as BT TV App Extra, a feature that offers additional benefits such as access to a range of TV platforms including Samsung Smart TVs, Apple TV and Google Chromecast.

BT TV app users can now purchase programmes direct via their set-top or BT Player and use the app to access all their purchases, rentals and subscriptions in one place.

Customers will be able to download and play films and box sets purchased or rented from the BT TV Store on any device through the BT TV app when out and about as well as at home.

BT TV App Extra allows customers to play content on up to four registered devices around the home through Samsung Smart TVs, Apple TV and Google Chromecast with Amazon Fire TV to be added in the near future.

Users of the TV App Extra will be able to access purchased and rented content like the enhanced BT TV app, but in addition they will be able to download and play their subscription, on demand, and catch-up content, including AMC and BT Sport. BT TV App Extra is available for an optional £5 extra on a monthly rolling contract.

Pete Oliver, managing director of BT marketing and sales said: “We’re giving customers unrivalled choice and flexibility in how they experience and watch their favourite content. Our new TV app brings BT’s fantastic entertainment and sport to multiple screens enabling customers to watch in more places than ever before.”
