Player is dead. It no longer functions. It is defunct. It is an ex-video/commentary playing system. It has fallen off it's perch and joined the choir invisible. In fact it wouldn't "voom" if you put 20,000,000 volts through it let alone the meagre power capacity of most laptops.

Did anyone else read the above in a John Cleese-esque Dead PArrot Monty Python sketch voice?


I read it more in a Rainier Wolfcastle voice tbf

Update:
Leeds on Sky for three of their first five games. Nothing for Reading, Fulham, Brentford, QPR or Millwall.
North/South bias?

did think us vs Fulham would have been a decent game to have been put on. But obviously they have to cycle through the 'big' clubs at least twice before they get to us

Now you know all they're really going to show are Leeds, Sunderland and Villa from the Championship despite the really big clubs like Fulham and Sheffield Wednesday.

Reading will get their annual home shambles with QPR televised on Good Friday and one or two random away games at places like Leeds, Villa or Sunderland if they're doing well.

And it should suit us all just fine that Reading get ignored so as few kick offs as possible get shunted about to stupid times

If anyone is going to watch on Ifollow on a VPN then you wouldnt want Reading to be shown on Sky anyway as it wouldnt then be streamed on IFollow - well thats how I understand it anyway.

Didn't you forget that fc barca-leeds are the best team in the world so fully deserve their 3 games on tv in a month

Has anyone been able to ascertain whether you can use the same iFollow account home & abroad?

I'm away for the first 2 games of the season. I want to sign up next week for the overseas version to see those games then use it back in the UK when I can't make away games and I'm out of range of BBC Radio Berks.

T&Cs don't make it clear

You can use it across borders but if you purchase a season pass overseas you won't be able to watch the games live (unless VPNs are effective). You will however be able to listen to live match commentary.

On a separate note does anyone know a good screen capture software? I mean I may as well record the games if I'm watching them to clear up disputes or what not. (If any Internet police are reading this is a joke...)

Season passes are available for the equivalent of £110.
Australia - AUD$185
Canada - CAD$190
EU - €130
USA - $140


So, are these just examples of costs equivalent to £110 or are they saying that if you live outside of UK/Ireland, EU, Australia, Canada and USA that you can't subscribe?

Will subscribers be able to watch games against teams who don't have ifollow, for example Fulham?

I am still undecided about spunking £110 on a subscription and hoping a VPN works.

Thanks for the link. Really useful although a bit confused now as this bit contradicts their email reply to my query:

If I live outside the UK or Republic of Ireland and subscribe to iFollow, will I be able to watch games on iFollow when travelling to the UK or Republic of Ireland?

No, when in the UK or Republic of Ireland you will not be able to live stream games on iFollow, however you would be able to listen to live match commentary.

Their email said (in slightly different words) tough, sucker, you need to pay twice for the privilege of using our glorious service. Once for the overseas one and again for the UK version.

I know it's a little bit of a taboo subject. But. I'm not willing to pay for Ifollow and a VPN when it may not be very reliable. What are the chances that every week all the Ifollow games will be posted up on sites such as firstrowsports and the like?

Unlikely I'd say.

I've just spoken to someone from ifollow and if we're playing a team who doesn't have ifollow the game won't be view able so basically half the games this season won't even be on it. Especially against the 'bigger' teams. So our opener against qpr won't be on there.
