Excuse my stupidity but living in London as I do can I buy a video subscription as I am only today being offered an audio renewal for £45.

No, you can't buy a video subscription in the UK.

Where are you seeing this G?

When I go into the BFC iFollow page, I get the ‘exciting updates coming August 2020’ nonsense and no option to renew.

I suspect U.K. based subscribers will only be allowed to buy an audio pass and video access will come when announcements are made re 2020/21 STs.

I received a renewal email tonight from EFL Digital.

So did I. £45 for the season. If no/reduced crowds at matches for early part, or indeed, all of next season, will be interesting to see if we get a similar deal for STHs re live video coverage.

Yep, I’ve cancelled my ifollow audio subscription on the basis that I’ve paid for a ST and might well get a deal with live video coverage as per the restart. ST money is ‘written off’ so would rather leave it with BFC.

I have done the same and are trying to cancel the auto renewal I have sent them an email but they keep pushing me about.

I'd expect quite a number of Sky games, though, so the live video may not be available for them.

Got an email saying renewed automatically 140 quid inc VAT. For this I get video stream of all league matches except those on Sky.
Even though there are sometimes frustrating glitches with the steam, I think this is generally a good service and a bargain for overseas subscribers.

I get every match whether or not it is on Sky. Not sure how.

Can't get access on iFollow audio of Brum game on phone or desktop. They've had my £45 for the season.

On the new style phone app, press 'live' in top rh corner, am told I'm 'offline, please try later'. One way or another, get as far as a red box saying 'Listen Live' which goes to a white background. Tap on that - nothing happens

On desktop get to that red box - again nothing happens. Go into iFollow Account and am requested to log in. I do, and tells me that user name or password is incorrect. Go to reset password. Then I'm returned to log in screen.

Slumming it with Talksport 2. What a mess from iFollow. Have eMailed them and await response.

I like listening to ’our team of commentators’ on iFollow and watching the match on Sky.
You have to synchronise the Sky TV coverage as the iFollow commentary always trails behind by about 40 seconds or so.

However, during the second half today, the commentary cut out, and silence prevailed for the rest of the second half until some guy came on promoting the Bolton home match, saying that there were good pies to be enjoyed, and live coverage would follow for the 3 pm kick-off.

I think that the whole iFollow experience is frustrating, with intermittent coverage often cutting out, and their TV coverage, when there’s no Sky, is not good either.
It is certainly not worth the payment for such a poor service.

Our commentators are excellent, but the technical issues are excruciating!

Don't hold your breath.
iFollow sent 3 emails during 2nd half - 1 for each time I pressed the Reset Password button. Had to click on their Email to me to actually change the password! Think my a/c connection got lost when the app was redesigned. Finally logged into A/c and confirmed they had registered me for this season. (Awaits with bated breath what happens for the 'udders game when I should get video coverage because of my Season Ticket!)

Watching on Sky I decided on a whim to just try my usual Ifollow entry on my android phone (BFC app)......no luck.....then tried via BFC website.....again, no luck. Cleared cookies, cache etc. reloaded BFC app...still nothing. Remembered something about the EFL iFollow app, gave it a go......easy entry and straight in ! They might be wanting their app. to be the main (or sole) means of entry.

Not sure if this is the right place but all the Tinter/IPTV threads seem to have been deleted. A couple of people suggested alternative IPTV providers, was just trying to find out what they are? Don't fancy paying for all these Sky Box Office games now! (Plus UFC tomorrow). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We can't have discussions re this sort of activity on the GPG.

No Audio commentary option today which I have already paid for. No I follow agent available to chat with. Poor.

First time I've had problems with iFollow today since lockdown. Buffering all game using Firefox (only goal I have seen clearly is Forss's first). :(

Kept getting BBC Radio Stoke commentary despite having it set for "away" it kept reverting back to "home". Had to mute the sound in the end because the Stoke commentator's voice would have been enough to send an insomniac to sleep! :judge:

Managed to get into the game after 20 minutes of play. How it doesn't work for 20 minutes with a black circle rotating then suddenly comes on is beyond me. It really is a CRAP SYSTEM that needs ditching!!!

First problems here today. Kept cutting out in second half, telling me i was trying to watch in more than one place. Maybe I've been hacked. Quite pleasant when it cut out, actually.

:ROFLMAO: .... Think I just found the route of my problem... daughter said she tried to tune in from Birmingham (as she had gained access to the last home game without actually being asked for her code). So it's her fault. Knew it was definitely nothing to do with my son!

Worked reasonably ok for me today. Had to put up with the Radio Stoke commentator with his..... Dallllls Guard pronunciation of Henrik.
