Who can get the free BT Sport app offer?

Pay monthly customers on 4GEE handset, tablet and SIM only phone plans can get the BT Sport app free for three months. After three months, you can continue to use the BT Sport app, but it’ll be charged at £5 per month and will appear as an add-on to your monthly bill. You can cancel it at any time.

It’s included in all 4GEE Max plans.

This offer is not available to pay as you go, EE Home Broadband, Car WiFi, Connected Camera and large business customers. And this offer is only available to people who haven’t enjoyed any of our previous BT sport app offers.

How to sign up for the free offer

Signing up for the BT Sport app is easy.

Text SPORT to 150

and we’ll let you know how to add it to your account, get a BT ID and download the app.


You can also get the BT Sport app:

  • when you join EE or upgrade in an EE store or through customer services
  • by calling 150 from your mobile
  • if you’re a pay monthly connected tablet customer by calling 07953 966502

Data charges

Customers can stream the BT Sport app over WiFi as well as the EE network. The BT Sport app automatically defaults to WiFi and will try to use WiFi wherever possible.

When you try to access the BT Sport app when you're out and about, it will notify you and take you to your settings where you can switch mobile data on. If you enable mobile data, you will then be able to stream over the EE network.

The amount of data you'll use while streaming on the EE network depends on a number of factors including: the streaming bit-rate, your device and screen size, the type of data connection you use, internet coverage and traffic on our network.

For example, if you do use the mobile network to watch a full football match of 90 minutes with a 15 minute half-time break, depending on your device and screen size, you’ll use between 1.5 and 2GB of data at most.

This being said, we don’t expect customers to watch a full game on the go.

As always, we’ll let you know when you’re nearing the end of your monthly data allowance and send you a link so you can buy more data to keep you going until the end of the month. So with our usage alerts you'll never be able to go over your data limit by accident, so there are never any surprise bills.
