Same here. Chrome on Mac.
How weird - Chrome on Mac here too, didn't work on there or on the phone (Android). Only worked when I tried it on Safari.

I watch via my IPTV with no problems at all, Millwall commentary, but no problem with pictures or buffering.

I always reset my router , switching off for at least 30 minutes, clear cache etc.
I also have “meshed” my house,(€90) so I log in to that, while other users can log in to the normal router.
That way I am not sharing signal in the house.
I also use a VPN.

I have now tried 3 different IPTV suppliers and had no problems at all.
I have chosen two options, one at $40 a year and one at €70 a year (approx £100 a year for both).

I am happy and so are the family as I now have a dedicated TV for 🐝 and other sports and they have their films, series etc.

Pictures perfect for me yesterday on my sisters PC using Chrome cast to the tv. But absolutely no sound. Decided that in a BCD match that was as close to realistic as matters, so didn’t bother trying to sort the sound.

Not trying to sound stupid here but how do you change browser? I presume that's the thing you type your search subject into? How do you find out what others there are?

Just search for 'best browsers', you'll find loads of reviews that will give you some guidance. I run a few (use them for testing); your device will require you to set a default but you can start and run multiple concurrently (For example, my default is Safari but also run Chrome for iFollow). Just search, download and install what you fancy.

And a final moan for the weekend....that Millwall commentator constantly sniffing was really getting up my nose.

OK IT chaps I need your help. I've got my code for Sunday but I can't get onto ifollow to upload. I actually managed to get some online help yesterday and we concluded to cancel my account and start again. I am using windows 7 on chrome, I have rebooted my wifi (virgin), deleted all my cookies, re-registered my account, tried following the videos, but all I get is an error message and try again. I have also tried Firefox with same result. What do I do now????

instead of all this angst, why can’t we launch a drone attack on IFollow Towers and instal Hobbsy or Banana as Chief IT Engineers?

I always end up with the away commentary when using IPTV, do you find that with your provider?

I find it a mixed bag. Sometimes get Mark B et al but most of the time it is opposition commentary.

The Millwall commentary was dire last weekend. Ended up synching my phone with the TV just to get a better commentary.

Obviously, did something wrong when I input my code from BFC, ending up having to pay £10 to watch the game to be broadcast against Preston. I tried to find the illustration that showed how to input codes without having to pay any additional monies to EFL but without success.
I will have to get in tune with this before the Coventry game.

A monster of a vehicle that should be ditched. How the EFL can endorse this platform is beyond me. It needs to be fool proof and idiot proof. A simple log in and easy to understand. It certainly isn't.

Tried Firefox and I've also triedx my laptpp with same results. I've had problems with bandwith on Zoom which i cured by using a wired connection which I'm using for iFollow too.

I've got in through my phone and got a confirmation email, hopefully the discount is applied.

My payment history shows the transaction asleague video match pass round 4, whatever that means but so far nothing seems to have translated through to my computer.

You can select the commentary you listen to I realised last week. In the bottom right there is a button for audio options. If you click it you will then be able to select home or away commentary.

I have also found this process what I call "clunky" but (so far) have got it to work.

In case this helps anyone, (and sorry if it wastes anyone's time) ... what I have learnt is:

1. First find the code on the email and carefully select it (no spaces before or after) and copy (control C is probably easiest on a windows OS)
2. After logging in to Ifollow you have to go to "subscribe" (not "next match"),
3. Then pick the audio and video pass, and then the correct match (usually the next match but not last Thursday before the cup game if setting up today's game)
4. Then in the payment page paste the code (control V)
5. If your payment card / paypal is already set up, the page might appear to have it already selected. Don't necessarily believe that! Select to use that payment method anyway otherwise you might find that the "pay now" button lower down doesn't work
6. Press the pay button and cross fingers.

IT'S WORKING. MIRACULOUS.

Thanks to Zinathi at iFollow, if indeed he did anything, account suddenly populated on computer. And to everyone on here for their advice. Just hope it last for the game.🐝🐝🐝

All seems well on chrome/pc/hdmi to tv paying £10...Brentford website> to ifollow> had to enter an address which didn’t need to for League Cup> PayPal> select next match along top menu (this bit isn’t the most obvious)
Weirdly, Pic isn’t as sharp as league cup.

Same here.
Requiring us to enter payment details when we have an access code is unreasonable and can only be intentional.

Chances of a refund?

Did it not just say -£10 when you added your credit card details? With a. A lance of £0.00. That is what mine said. 🤔🧐🤷🏼‍♂️

Yes it's crap. If it didn't NEED a Credit Card then this wouldn't happen to people.

EFL should be f***ing ashamed of their crappy website.

Have written to EFL and club, but lord only knows how difficult it will be to get a refund. I’m furious. It might only be a tenner, but I will pursue this and won’t let it go. It’s an absolute racket.

Under no circumstances press the buy now button unless the balance says £0. You have a chance to review the purchase before confirming it. If it says £10 then you need to reinput the iFollow code and press redeem. If that does not put the balance to zero, your code is dud (or you have input it incorrectly)...do not then press buy now or you will be charged.

At least today I got in on my first try and it worked for the full game ( maybe it should have cut off then I wouldn’t have watched that crap)
