I logged in to play the audio before the match started and saw both audio and video options. Didn't think anything of it at the time but I do remember from last season that you only had the video option if you were abroad or using a VPN. Adding to that if the match was on Sky then they wouldn't stream it via Ifollow.

I watched it on Sky anyway but someone definitely oxf*rd up there.

Yeah, that'll be enough for a pint in the White Horse.... if it ever materialises.

It's really disgraceful. First iFollow game of season (Derby was on Sky), and they have probs already. Any and all bugs should be worked out by now. They aren't even responding at all on the IFollow Suport Chat thingy

I may or may not have it included in an IPTV package. But none of the Ifollow channels on there are working. I have however been assured that they usually do so I'll have to check back next week.

Could you pm me please. Apologies but I can't seem to find that function. :oops: I'm only 24 aswell :lol:

But yes it is literal magic and a godsend for fans like me that live a long way away.

While Derby was on Sky, they did (mistakenly I think) show it on iFollow. I don't even subscribe to the live matches so it was a major cock-up by someone. Anyway, it worked brilliantly last week :lol:

I see now that it's been put on iFollow for those that don't subscribe to the full match, the commentary only kicks in after about 20 minutes. I hope they sort it out soon. Getting up at 1:45 am to record the BBC Berks commentary was a real drag last season (and I gave up before the end of the season).

Issues were definitely iFollow wide on Saturday - certainly going by the grumblings on Twitter.

Whilst it was annoying, and hopefully a one off. I was really impressed with the updated service.

The video stream had BBC Berks commentary over it as standard and in sync whilst the score/match time are now visible. Picture was superb as well. Much improved service. Now if it can just add replays for goals, would be spot on.

Can you pay to watch just one match on iFollow now or do you have to sign up for the whole season?

Not sure if anyone has brought it up before but sky are showing EVERY midweek championship game on the red button. This means they will be showing the games against Blackburn, Leeds, and Norwich, both home and away. I’m still hurting after 7-1

I only found out because of an advert on tv. Sky should advertise it more because quite a few fans don’t know about it

yeah its been mentioned on here quite a lot, but agree Sky haven't marketed it especially well. Its a huge win when so many of our games are against horrible northern teams.

Thanks for the sky mention, had completely forgotten about that, though there may be times when im not able to watch live (or at least a good chunk of the first half anyway) and you can't record the red button coverage can you?
