Guy at work quite into his football (he's italian), pays for BeIn sports.

 

I believe he's got a Sony Android TV and a samsung tablet.  Currently I think he's casting from the samsung tablet (browser) to the chromecast aspect of the tv.  It's jerky (I'm guess it's being converted to a video by the tablet, rather than handing off the stream to the tv).

 

I don't think there's an app for Sony TV (I don't have any of this hardware to confirm it), but if someone has some details on how to get a better experience, I'd love to know.

Sky sell beIN afaik.

 

So if they have sky, that would probably be the easiest option.

 

If he is subscribed online then maybe try an R-Pi to the TV?
