Yes, I’ve read the other threads...might’ve missed it.

Yesterday or the day before, the video player on the sports app (iPhone 8) had an option to expand the screen and an option to share with a TV-today all I have is closed captioning, and pause/play.

I’ll add that I did buy an Amazon Firestick, but I was going to send it back if I don’t need it because I can share from my phone to the TV.

Anyone know how to get the other features back?

I have an 8 also and have to use chromecast. You need your fire stick or chromecast or a direct plug in from a laptop. Never heard of the way your talking about.

Yes. The weird thing is the player had the option to share and to expand the screen (like YouTube does) but neither of those features are present anymore.

Does YouTube still let you cast to the tv?

I just plug my phone into the tv with the apple adapter, works for Netflix etc. I'm hoping it works with the gold app

It’s there for me on iPhone X.

Try turning on “screen mirroring” if the option isn’t available within the app.

Anyone having issues getting it to play on a Samsung Galaxy 8? I get to it but I cannot get it to fire up and play. I just get a message saying either contact them via email or go to the help menu. I'm frustrated.

Disappointed in Golds production of Supercross. At least with MX outdoors and MXoN the commercial breaks weren't dead silence and a dull shot of the track. Pretty amateur production. Must tthe last minute switch from Fox to NBC Gold. Hopefully it will get better.
