Not streaming from iPhone to Apple TV on Samsung Smart TV

Recently Samsung upgraded their smart TV's and now have Apple TV, (with AirPlay 2 I believe), great, now I can watch/stream everything from my iPhone, everything EXCEPT Optus Sport that is! Hit the AirPlay symbol on my phone, pick Samsung TV, says 'Video now playing on tv' and the TV screen goes to loading mode but never gets any further - just the rotating loading symbol in the centre of the screen.

Any answers please!?

Per this link https://www.optus.com.au/shop/support/answer/optus-sport-ways-to-watch?requestType=NormalRequest&id=... you can actually install Optus Sport on your Apple TV 4.

Nope, Apple TV is now 'part' of the TV, (not running a seperate Apple TV box). nowhere to load/install Apps!

I recall another customer with an Apple TV had to download and install the Optus Sport app on an iPhone and then use the login credentials on the Apple TV.

See this thread.

Optus have informed me that Optus Sport and Apple TV from Samsung are non compatible!? Smiley Sad

How frustrating, every other app streams fine via airplay2. I have the same issue.

Annoying isn't it! Optus are still saying it's a non compatibility issue between them and Samsung TV's.

Suffering the same on LG C9

 

My link above. I was explicity told that you can AirPlay to the TV now. Every single other app that supports AirPlay works exept for Optus Sport (go figure)

 

Even BeIN Sports Connect works via AirPlay and their app has to be worst app in existance, yet it works.
