Re- midweek games, does anyone know if 'Red Button' games count as 'live on Sky' and will therefore not available to buy on iFollow? Or is that just games on proper channels? The reason I ask is that I don't have access to the red button. :(

I've just subscribed to a Video Match Pass and got a confirmation email, although, in true EFL Digital style, the email doesn't tell me which match it's for!

My understanding is that "red button" games are not what's meant by "live on sky" games, which are the "feature" games - i.e. our match with Sheff Wed yesterday was the feature match, so not available on ifollow, but all the other matches yesterday would have been available on ifollow and red button.

I might be wrong though, it's happened before...

Interestingly, the ifollow ‘season ticket’ still appears as one of my purchased packages.

I wonder if the Stoke game will be available if this is not removed from my account by Saturday?

In theory no, as that is not deemed a VIP match. However this is ifollow....

Only iFollow could call a product a ‘season ticket’ but then only have it apply to matches that are shown by a third party.

It's actually more around the fact that they don't know what deal each club have offered to their season ticket holders.

Surely the only way they can apply/dis-apply these packages is if the club disclosed to the EFL which ST holders have picked which deal.

I wonder how that fits in with DPA/ GDPR?

Very much hope you're right as it will mean I'll be able to see these games on iFollow. See, I don't have Sky Sports, but an Orient mate that does, lets me use my computer as one of his Sky Go devices in exchange for periodical deliveries of Strongbow Dark Fruits. :)

hobbsy means the differences between how clubs have implemented their own ST deals, not the differences between our options as a single club.

But (should have added), turns out you can't get the red button on the Sky Go PC app so I'll be stuffed if red button games aren't in iFollow. I'd have to go back to audio only and I've been rather spoilt lately. ;)

The club's news article says that if you partake in this then you are agreeing to have your (rather limited) info shared with the EFL by the club

And if you didn't agree with the sharing of data then you couldn't watch the relevant matches on iFollow.

Stoke is away. So you won’t be getting one.

You have to pay £10 for this game.

I am trying to purchase an ifollow video pass for tomorrows game V Stoke, but it is asking me for a voucher code which I don't seem to have!

The same thing happened with the Millwall game so I was unable to watch that one.

Please advise ASAP.

Please note I am not particularly tech savvy so don't ask me to do anything "complicated" to my laptop!!!

You should be able to proceed without entering a voucher code. Just ensure the field is empty.

You should be able to just leave the promo code box blank and buy the game for £10

They used to be available in the Sky Sports mobile phone app, rather than on Sky Go last season. Didn't check this week to see if that was still the case though.

Yep that's still the case unfortunately. But why anyone would want to watch football on something as small as a tablet, let alone a telephone is beyond me. Fingers crossed red button games will be on iFollow. (y)

This is a good opportunity for that Father Ted small/far away thing.

A thing you can do to work out whether your phone is too small to watch on is to go to where you sit to watch your telly, hold your phone a comfortable viewing distance away but in line with the telly and see how much of the telly you can see. If your phone almost completely blocks out your view of the telly, watching the game on it will give you pretty much the same view as watching the telly. If you’re old enough to remember the days of watching MotD on a 28” telly 10’ the other side of the living room (a huge screen back in the 80s) any smartphone will give you a better view than you had watching Maradona’s hand of God goal back in the day unless you were actually there or incredibly rich.

I think this has already been asked (but I've not seen an answer), presumably those of us not lucky enough to get a ticket for the games where fans are allowed will still be able to watch on iFollow? (Either 'free' as ST holder, or purchased if not/for away games).
I wonder what the 'tipping point' will be in terms of number of fans allowed in the ground, befire live iFollow (and SKY) coverage in the UK is switched off??........

I imagine full capacity will be when we can no longer bypass UEFA article 8.

However I also think there will be some resistance from the TV companies to not reinstate it
