    Does anyone know how to get this on my TV. I can download the app to my other devices but I don't know how to do it on the TV. I do have internet in the TV.

    Is it an android tv?

    You could try browsing to the ccfc site and see if it works that way?

    I played around with it for a while. Here's a youtube video for anyone else who has got a Samsung smart tv and who wants to connect their phone or ipad to iFollow:


    Basically you have to download the TV Cast app to both your TV and your ipad/iphone and then enter the IP address into the TV. After that it's fairly easy.

    I did email iFollow about it and they said it wasn't possible to stream iFollow onto a smart tv. Well I've proved them wrong!

    I just assumed they were showing it because they have a countdown clock on iFollow. Maybe they are just teasing...

    Yes :( I checked with them and it starts for the league game. I saw the icon too.

    It was a few weeks ago though so they might have changed

    Have you tested it with highlights and interviews that are on there?

    Should be fine, would have thought they would test it on friendlies but probably down to rights etc.

    Does the picture quality look ok when on a big tv? Might try that later.

    Should work with a.Chromecast too

    The TV Cast app allows you to choose picture quality and I tried it on the highest. The quality was really good and I didn't have any connection problems. My TV is HUGE so I am very happy to watch the games on there rather than on a phone or iPad.

    10 min highlights available free at the minute it seems. Not sure if this is a 1 off or not

    I cannot see any full match replay uploaded. Can anyone else?

    To stream the match live it appears you need an overseas postal address so a VPN won't be able to help you unless you have access to one. Even then it's possible to detect an anonymous proxy if you are watching from the UK as Netflix can. I always use a VPN as it protects you from advertisers, spammers, hackers and cyber attacks. It's a small price to pay for peace of mind. Avoid the free ones as they aren't secure and the bandwidth will be awful.Oh, should you get banned from any forum you can use a VPN to join again and get around an IP block ;)

    Do you mean live streaming on match day which is only for overseas fans or the audio commentary which is available in this country?

    The full match is also available on the CCFC App if you go to the match results tab. For some reason only the highlights are shown under the videos. Unfortunately the web browser still doesn't work for iOS systems.

    Did you manage to actually get this working with the iFollow app? I know services like Sky Go cut out as soon as you use any sort of screen mirroring or casting software and it wont work with a laptop that is docked ether (like some of you will use at work), they are unable to stop it when you are using a HDMI out from the laptop though. If you can stream directly from the iFollow site this would probably be the best option. You could then use a browser like Opera that allows you to run a VPN directly from it. This would be simpler for the less techy guys here. As people have mentioned there would also be ways to load to an Android box or possibly even sideload to your Smart TV but these would be trickyer with VPN configuartion.

    Didn't renew my ST this year and planning on doing as many aways as possible starting with this Saturday. I didnt hear about this iFollow stuff until last night.
