If you’re having trouble watching BT Sport on Chromecast with your EE phone or broadband package after the free trial, don’t worry, you’re in the right place because we have a workaround.
A Google Chromecast device is a great invention that allows you to stream from a number of different apps directly to your TV.
Sometimes there can be an issue with permissions or user credentials, problems on the service provider end or any number of difficulties.
Overall, these devices offer an unrivalled quality of streaming directly to your TV, you should definitely consider picking one up, for you or a friend.
We put this guide together to help you watch BT Sport through Chromecast with our workaround so keep reading for how to do just that.
What is the problem and why won’t it work normally?
EE has carved out a deal with BT Sport so that their customers can watch the channel on Chromecast.
Customers can watch BT Sport for three months with no cost at all but it can only be used once.
After the trial ends the app costs £5 per month and an extra £10 per month if you wish to cast it onto your TV screen.
Obviously, this is a bit pricey so we thought we’d find a workaround so you don’t have to fork out that extra £10 per month.

It’s so easy to use Chromecast to watch BT Sport with EE so we’ll give you a quick step-by-step guide
- Download the Google Home app and set up your Google Chromecast.
