BT Sports Device Limit

You are not allowed to use more than two devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers, at once to access BT Sport Online.

However, when it's required to protect the quality of BT Sport, BT may occasionally limit your access to BT Sport Online temporarily to just one device.


How to Manage BT Sports Devices?

A device will automatically be registered when you've logged in and watched a program.

You can register up to four devices and watch programs on two devices at the same time. You can register a new device once in thirty days once your device limit has been met.

Keep in mind that only App Extra customers can register up to four devices.


Sport Device Checker: How to See Your Device List

Follow these easy steps to access the sport device checker:

  • Go to Settings
  • Open Device Management; you'll see your devices listed with their name and icon, showing which platform that device relates to. So it's simple and easy to recognize your devices.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is watching BT Sport on Both SkyQ and SkyQ Mini possible?

You can't get BT Sport exclusively for your SkyQ Mini because the box doesn't have a viewing card slot. You must install BT sports on your primary SkyQ box before adding a BT Sport Second Box subscription for your SkyQ Mini.

What if I own a Sky Multi-Room and want to switch to SkyQ Mini?

You cannot switch to the SkyQ mini exclusively because the SkyQ mini does not have a viewing card slot. You can switch to SkyQ, however. Please call sky customer care to get information on how to do this.
