TNT Sport not showing on Discovery Plus App

I have TNT sport included with my Discovery plus which works fine on my iPad, however is nowhere to be seen on the glass app. Is it that sky have deliberately removed it as to force you to pay £30 for the right to watch it on their platform?

@Zoe+Bambridge  It's coming soon if you subscribe to tnt sports channels via sky

 

if you don't subscribe to tnt sports via sky it won't be available via the glass app at all and you will need to continue accessing it has you currently are

Re: TNT Sport not showing on Discovery Plus App

Well that's some (unsurprising) anti-consumer behaviour from Sky.  Not a showstopper as I'd rather pay £9pm (thanks to recently renegotiating my contract) through BT TV and watch it via my Apple TV than £30pm from Sky.

Re: TNT Sport not showing on Discovery Plus App

@SKY1992bf I don't think what you are saying is correct. How I read the article is that the app needs updating to  allow access to TNT Sports and if your discovery plus account has the relevant permissions/subscriptions whether that be directly from Sky or through EE/BT etc you will have access to TNT. I don't see how they can have different types of app for different customers

Re: TNT Sport not showing on Discovery Plus App

Coming soon, Sky TV customers who subscribe to TNT Sports will also be able to access the Premium plan on discovery+, which will enable them to enjoy TNT Sports via the discovery+ app on Sky Glass, Sky Stream and Sky Q.

 

^ The above is taken from the official press release - it doesn't say that Sky tv customers have to subscribe to TNT sports through sky

@Chrisee 

 

Is that confirmed that this a WBD decision? Strikes me as something that Sky would have a say with in terms of what goes onto their platform. 

 

I was wondering if it is like the Apple TV app it is the version with only Apple TV+ is there and shows/movies bought through Apple aren't which you'd assume is because of the conflict with Sky Store.

Re: TNT Sport not showing on Discovery Plus App

@Chrisee @My thoughts are that the app is the app. If it allows premium access to TNT Sports, it will allow it for all, as all the other apps work on sky. Ie you can have access to Disney/Netflix/Apple tv plus  through sky or direct with Disney - the app still works. How would sky configure two versions on the discovery plus app??? I can't see it.

Re: TNT Sport not showing on Discovery Plus App

The app just isn't updated yet on Glass or Stream. The press release from TNT Sports says it will be updated soon on these platforms.

 

In terms of the subscriptions, Sky customers will continue to get Discovery+ for free, but TNT Sports through Disovery+ requires the app's Premium subscription option (which, understandably, is not the package provided for free to Sky customers).

@Zoe+Bambridge it's £29.99 regardless of which platform you watch it on.

Why would Sky deliberately remove it when TNT sports 1,2,3,4 are listed in the tv guide under Sports

Actually TNT Sports is showing £28 per month on my Sky Q box

If you have TNT sport included with DiscoveryPlus you must be paying the £29.99 subscription then?

The TNT channels will show in the DiscoveryPlus app on your ipad regardless if you subscribe to TNT sports or not

Also Android version

I don't have the relevant pass so can't watch TNT sport1

Re: TNT Sport not showing on Discovery Plus App

@best+of+the+best @The poster I thought was asking why when they subscribed to TNT sports (discovery premium) through other means, EE, BT or directly with D + wasn't it available on the Discivery plus app on sky, which it isn't.

@Jason+Golding  I have just taken it from the link I posted as below 


"Sky TV customers with TNT Sports will soon get discovery+ premium.

If you don't have TNT Sports, you'll still get Entertainment and Eurosport content on discovery+ at no extra cost."


sky I believe with possible help from discovery can control what access customers get

 

originally customers could only get the basic tier for free before sports (Eurosport only) was added so that change does imply sky does have some control over what their customers can 

access  through the main app on glass/stream 

 

anyhow regardless of what we think can/can't be correct we will find out soon enough when it does launch

@Jason+Golding if I purchased it via Sky @£28.00 per month I'll watch TNT channels via the EPG for those channels not via the DiscoveryPlus app whilst at home 

£29.99 pm from BT

£28.00 extra pm from Sky

Re: TNT Sport not showing on Discovery Plus App

The question was if a customer like me as an example gets discovery plus/TNT sports with their EE sim plan. Can they watch the TNT sports via the discovery plus app via sky stream. Currently this isn't possible but warner discovery have said that the app will be updated soon. Why would a customer that gets tnt sports as a free smart benefit or inclusive with another provider pay another £27 a month for the privilege of watching the sky stream EPG.
