Reading Leeds perhaps surprisingly hasn't been picked up by foreign broadcasters as the Saturday 3pm game so will be available to ifollow subscribers as per normal.

From a quick look at the Ifollow fixture list Reading don't have another game this season being televised in Europe so there should be streams for all the remaining games.

Excellent stream if you don't have access to Sky.

I've just been into iFollow to see what my options are for next season. Last season I paid for the full package, but didn't really use the 'watch live HD' option for a few reasons:
1. The evening games are too late for me (00:45 BST or 01:45 GMT)
2. Reading were crap... Certainly didn't want to waste my time getting up at silly O'Clock for that shower of...
3. I like listening to the BBC Berkshire commentary (I know, a lot of you don't – I do) and not having the option to do this AND watch the game was annoying.

I'm sure last year there were 3 options:
1. Free, which only included behind the scenes news from time-to-time and the weekly club newsletter (what the hell was this?)
2. Basic cheaper option which included the commentary, video highlights of matches (and possibly the replay of the match later?)
3. The full rip-off option which included live HD match, commentary (but NOT together), replay's, highlights etc.
There was a fourth option of paying £5 (£5-£9??) for a single match.

Now they seem to have knocked off the 2nd option meaning you either pay £110 for the season (and all I want is to listen to the commentary) or go for free and get basically nothing.

Anyone confirm this? Seen anything from the club about it?

Okay, I logged in again with a VPN showing I was now in the UK and see that there are the options of £45 for the year giving everything but the watch live option, or £4.99 monthly which gives exactly the same as the yearly option, but at a saving of 10p ?? I'll go with that one then and maybe miss a month if we're going down. Haha!

I went for the full rip off last year, definitely won't be this year. Watching a game without commentary is utterly pointless so I'll be taking the middle tier this year and happy to listen to Tim and mick.

I'm clearly in the minority here but I enjoyed the fact that there was no commentary and just crowd noise, was slightly annoying when it didn't sync up but otherwise was great.

No, I get that completely but its 10/11pm here for a Saturday 3pm kickoff, I just found it tiresome sitting and watching a game and not take my eyes off it, which, effectively you have to do without commentary, although that may have been due to the quality of the product on display (lol!). When pushed for why they don't allow audio and visual at once, they claim that its the clubs choice I'd say that's bollocks and suggest its purely so they can stop 2 people sharing the account.

I went with the full options last season but will pay match by match this season, just to save money more than anything else.

I get that totally. You want to go with the match day experience, and unless you're plugged into a radio while sat in the stadium, this is exactly what you get. I just don't think it would be too much to ask for them to have the option in the audio setting of a) Commentary, b) Ambient. If you look under audio, there is (I think this is right) Off, Home, Away... But all three were exactly the same.

If I was at the game, I wouldn't mind not hearing the commentary as there were usually people around me, we were having a chat, you can kind of get what's going on by the reactions close to you etc. But watching it on a computer screen with just some crowd noise was very difficult to concentrate on. Or as 10539.4 Miles Away put it, maybe that was because of the quality of the product on display.

I'm not holding out much hope for a better season as things are looking so far. IMO there's a lot of quality in the Championship this year and it looks one of the toughest seasons to get out... We may achieve getting out of the Championship, but it won't be 'up', I'm sure. I hope I'm proven wrong, but I'll turn on my VPN in August and pay the £45 for radio commentary (although I do think this is a high price also).
