BT Sport customers who have the necessary BT subscription plus a 4K capable Fire TV, Roku streaming device, or a 4K device running Android TV such as some TV sets from Sony, Phillips, TCL, Sharp, Cello and JVC, will be able to access BT Sport Ultimate, a channel providing regular live sport in stunning 4K with High Dynamic Range (HDR).

Existing BT Sport customers with access to the app for large screen devices will be able to access BT Sport on the new devices and platforms at no extra cost, allowing them to watch live, catch-up and on-demand sport, and, have a second screen to watch two livestreams simultaneously.

New customers can access the app in a range of ways including BT Sport Monthly Pass, which is available for a £25 monthly fee with no contract.
