Is there a delay if you watch the game and listen to BBCRB commentary on a separate radio?

About a month's average salary in Nepal :!:

Besiktas game is live on DAZN here tomorrow so very good chance there will be streams available for those who have nothing better to do.

Yes. You can pause the video until they are in sync but they tended to slowly drift apart. Though probably from the video buffering for a fraction of a second every 5 minutes.

There was an option in settings to choose between home and away audio commentary but it didn't do anything.

Yes, but like said, you can pause the video and try to sync it up. Sadly, the BBCRB broadcast doesn't quite reach Nepal.

Most wouldn't even earn that. I don't 'earn' anything as I'm a volunteer anyway. £110 was definitely a stretch for me, and even £45 I'm wondering about. I think I'll go with monthly and if we're playing anything like last season I won't bother. I have to get up at 12:45 am and set my computer to record the commentary as it is for the evening games (1:45 in GMT). I usually listened to them the next day.

That's some dedication.

Can't you go and watch your local side?

No, the whole point in the VPN is to give the illusion you are outside the UK which iFollow is for.

Not quite. A VPN can give the illusion of being in many different countries. For instance, I live in Nepal but need to trick the iFollow servers into thinking I'm actually in the UK so I only have to pay £45 for the option to listen to live commentary and watch full match replay the day after (if so inclined). From outside the UK, I only have the option of paying £110 for live commentary, but also includes live match in HD as well, which isn't allowed from inside the UK. I don't want this as it was a waste of money last season, hence why I will be using a VPN to show me as being IN the UK.

To answer the original posters question, no, you can't listen to Radio Berkshire online at all, even if you were right outside their studios (during the match - the pre-show is available, and you don't need a VPN for this).

I watched the game on my SkyBet app last night. Great quality but only sparse commentary for the first 10 mins.

Unfortunately I had stuff to do so only watched up until about 65mins.

My suspicion is they won't as for Besiktas it came up on the Reading club homepage as an upcoming fixture, for which it doesn't for the Kazan game.
