To follow up on this I downloaded Prime Video from the Play Store with the Autosport trial enabled, app doesn't support Chromecast! smash And my Smart TV doesn't have Prime Video available in the Phillips store, so I'm back to square one with the WEC app.

Do you mean Eurosport trial? Can't you just download the Eurosport Player app? That does support Chromecast.

Ahh I signed up for a free 7 day trial of Eurosport via Amazon Prime.

I've since signed up to Eurosport direct for a 7 day free pass and it does in indeed support Chromecast.

Thanks!

FWIW, if you have an Xbox, you can download the Prime Video app from the Microsoft Store.

I get Amazon Prime on my Samsung smart TV but can't find a Eurosport live feed, all I can find are videos of old programs.

I've subscribed to Eurosport player.

Anyone got any idea where I can find a live feed on Prime?

Thanks for the reply but Samsung stopped supporting the Eurosport Player last year.

Reading the posts about it being available via Prime made look but I can't find it!

The Porsche website says you’ll be able to watch Eurosport coverage for free via the Porsche website

Just spotted this too, I’m sure it wasn’t on the planner yesterday so looks like a late addition.

Can someone tell me if I'm doing something wrong? I signed up for the amazon free trial at £4.99 and downloaded the player onto my firestick. When I open the app it's asking me to sign in using a eurosport account which means I have to sign up for another trial with eurosport. It's like the amazon trial and eurosport app are not synced.

Does your TV come with an internet browser? If so, can you just get to the Eurosport Player web site from there and watch it?

Another recommendation for the Eurosport app. Mirroring it to my TV through a tablet, watching the non-advert feed with RLM through an Echo for commentary.
I know its a long way off but Eurosport usually run a black Friday deal for their player - managed to get a year for 99p last November!

I was streaming Eurosport to my TV via my Amazon Fire stick last night and then watching onboard footage on my tablet via the WEC app. Heaven. My wife is out for most of the day on Saturday, so the house to myself and undisturbed Le Mans on the TV is almost making up for not being there.

with the amazon free trial you need to get to your 'amazon prime video channels' there is a link in the email I got confirming my free trial so have a look, the 'Eurosport Player' hyperlinks in the email also take you to the same place which will show the live eurosport feeds. if you've not got the email on the website go to the prime video page & click 'channels' on the black band below the scrolling ad.
i'm also using the prime video app on a samsung tv & had to scroll down the main page to find 'my channels' not sure if the firestick will have a similar set up? you don't need the eurosport player as that is separate its all through amazon

do not bother searching on the main amazon website for eurosport as it only gives old programs

eta: not found anything particularly useful yet like the qualifying though so may still bin it off

I cancelled it but may have another look. Quest coverage looks ok if you don't intend watching the whole thing, 2 hours at the start, another hour at 10pm and the last four and a half hours to the finish on Sunday.
