I get Freeview TV via a status aerial.
I get BT Sport's and Amazon by "casting" from my phone to the TV.
How do you get Sky Sports ?

Now Tv app maybe and cast to your TV as you do with the others
They are always emailing me offers for the sports as we have had the entertainment and cinema deals in the past.

TIP... Have the free trial and then cancel, they often then offer you a deal there and then or will do a follow up email later.
Last week it was Ā£14.99 but i have no interest in sports.

As above but you could also install a satellite receiver on the roof, or free standing, and take your sky box.

I don't have a sky box.
At home I get Sky Sports via Now TV through my BT box.

I plug sky go into the telly from my laptop via a long HDMI cable. Not ideal but works.
Yep, exactly what we do, we actually use this way for all our TV channels in the van. Just set the laptop up in settings, so that you can also fold the laptop down to save space. Our TV slides out of a cupboard above the fridge/freezer, so the laptop just goes in the cupboard and we only need a normal length hdmi cable. šŸ‘

I've just downloaded the Now TV app.
No mention of a free trial period or any fees ?
I have Now TV at home.

Maybe the free trails have stopped....

If you already have now TV at home and are subscribing then you can log into you account and check if there is a free trial.
I always log on via a PC / Tablet as that seems to be better than via the TV app.

You can have six devices on your Now TV account.
Like: one at home, a smart phone and a USB stick device in your motorhome's hdmi slot, etc.

enough to know i shouldnt touch things i know nothing about ....
I always think the best way to sort out stuff like this is to have lots of trial runs at home, so you can swap stuff around. Is there a reason why you can't take the equipment that provides you with your programmes at home, with you in the moho and pair your BT box with a mobile internet gadget?

No I suppose I could take my home gear, but if I can just cast Now TV Sports from my phone to the TV like I do with BT Sport it would be easier.
This would just be for me to watch Premier League football and F1.
My BT TV app and Amazon apps are free, I assume as I have Now TV at home that is why the Now TV app is free to me ?

On the subject of BT Sport, I just cancelled mine as it went up to Ā£29.99 pm. Are you paying via Sky or direct as I was?

As folks have alluded to, it sounds like you need to get the Now TV app installed on your Smart TV or firestick or whatever device in the Moho and log in using the same ID and add the TV or whatever device as one more authorized device for your Now TV app.

You will need internet for this, either tethered to your phone or a Motorhome Wifi system.

I've downloaded the Now TV app onto my phone and have watched Sky Sports on my phone.
Surely all I have to do is cast that from my phone to the TV in the van same as I do with BT Sport ?

Indeed; if the TV will allow casting. You'll need Wifi for casting (I think), the make and model of the phone and TV would be helpful. It's suboptimal though, can you not get Now TV on your Moho TV?

I cast from my phone to a dongle plugged into the van TV.
I also have a lead that I can attach from my phone to the van TV HDMI port.
I am then using the internet from my phone mobile data allowance.

I am a now sports subscriber.
The app says I can connect up to 6 devices.
My phone would be my second device.
