Can you cast via 4G to your TV?

Yes, you can create a personal hotspot on your phone that your Apple TV or Google Chromecast can connect to and then just cast from your phone to your big screen.

We’ll give you inclusive data at no additional cost with BT Sport, so if you’re using a personal hotspot to cast it won't come out of your plan allowance.
