Many people these days take out digital subscriptions to their favourite TV channels which they can stream to their devices through the internet.
If you also have a BT Sport subscription and have ever wondered “can I cast BT Sport to Firestick?”, then read on, this is a guide for you.
Cast BT Sport to Firestick
Many people use the BT Sport application on their Android or iOS smartphones.
The first method that comes to mind is to simply cast BT Sport to the Firestick. Unfortunately, the BT Sport application does not support casting to an Amazon Firestick.
Casting is only available to Chromecast and Apple TV. Even then, you might not be able to cast it, depending on the type of subscription you have.
If the BT Sport subscription came free with your EE Mobile contract or BT Mobile deal, then, unfortunately, you won’t be able to cast the application.
Mirror your screen to Firestick
Although BT Sport and Chromecast aren’t currently compatible, there are some other workarounds we suggest.
Screen mirroring means that you can essentially see everything that is being displayed on your smartphone on a TV.
Amazon Firestick supports screen mirroring with your smartphone.
So, even though you cannot cast the BT Sport app to your Firestick, no one can stop you from screen mirroring the BT Sport app via Firestick!
To be able to mirror the screen, make sure that the Firestick and the smartphone are on the same Wi-Fi connection.

Let’s take a look at another way to enjoy BT Sport on your Amazon Firestick.
As long as you have paid for a BT Sport subscription, sideloading the app is a viable option.
It’s just as simple as installing the BT Sport app on the Firestick, it is an android-based device after all. However, the app is not available on the Amazon App Store, so you would have to sideload it.
