With the arrival of BT Sport on the hugely popular platform, Roku TV and Fire TV Streaming Stick viewers can now stream live Premier League matches.

Existing BT Sport customers who have access to the large-screen device app will be able to access BT Sport on the new devices and platforms at no additional cost. So they can watch live, catch-up and on-demand sports and have a second screen to watch two live streams at the same time.
New customers can access the app in a number of ways, including the BT Sport Monthly Pass, which gives all sports fans a flexible way to watch top-class sports for a simple monthly fee without a contract. Anyone can buy and watch BT Sport monthly with the BT Sport Monthly Pass, available for instant access for just £ 25 per month. For the next month, the pass will feature live games from the Premier League, Gallagher Premiership Rugby, European Rugby Champions Cup and more.
