How to Watch TNT Sports on Panasonic Smart TV

BT Sport has evolved. The next generation of sports broadcasting in the UK begins with TNT Sports following the BT Sport-Discovery merger, with Premier League, Champions League football, and Premiership Rugby next season shown on the brand-new channels.

Eurosport, owned by Warner Bros. Discovery, will be brought under the TNT Sports branding sometime later. This combined duo is to provide top domestic football, rugby, tennis, cricket, motorsport, MMA, boxing, and the Olympics all under one roof. For now, though, the sports brands remain distinct.

For TV viewers, BT Sport has simply become TNT Sports. And there have been no changes in pricing for legacy subscribers so far. But those tuning in regularly via the BT Sport app would be surprised to know that the rebranded channels have found a new streaming home.

Where are they streaming, and how do you access TNT Sports on Panasonic Smart TV? We’ve compiled this guide to tell you everything you need to know.

Watch TNT Sports on Panasonic Smart TV via Discovery+

With Warner Bros. Discovery involved, the streaming side is bound to be handled by them, and it is. Discovery+, home to a wide selection of on-demand programming and exclusive originals, previously offered Eurosport as a means of live sports content. Now that BT Sport is rebranding, it’s also the new streaming destination for TNT Sports.

You don’t get TNT Sports with the same £7/month Entertainment & Sport plan that only includes Eurosport, but rather with the new “Premium” tier that Discovery+ has recently introduced, which costs a lot more. Existing subscribers can upgrade to the new plan by paying the difference.

For legacy BT Sport customers, either directly from BT or the other pay-TV providers, pricing remains the same for now, and they should also have free-of-cost access to the Discovery+ plan that includes both TNT Sports and Eurosport.

If you’re new to Discovery+, head to from your browser (either on your phone or computer) and select Sign Up. Then choose the premium Sports tier that includes TNT Sports with your preferred billing cycle, create an account, verify via email, review your subscription, and complete the payment with your preferred method.

Which Panasonic TVs Support Discovery+?

Only Panasonic Android TVs and the newer Fire TV Edition Smart TVs are compatible with the Discovery+ app.

If you have one of the models that run on Panasonic’s proprietary My Home Screen OS, it neither supports the service nor allows casting from the mobile app. Mirroring, too, won’t work due to DRM (Digital Rights Management) restrictions.

You’ll need an external streaming media player like a Chromecast, Firestick, or Roku for streaming TNT Sports via Discovery+ on a non-compatible Panasonic Smart TV.
