    My Account

    Seems easy enough to sign up, it's just if they start asking for proof of ID / address etc.

    apparnetly people have successfuly signe dup with uk cards and address. as long as i.p is foreign you can sign up

    wether they will block these accounts after i do not know

    as for kodi, i know what it is, nothing to suggest someone is gonna put on streams for eevry cov game. i would rather pay 110 quid for hd. but just need to know vpn will work

    guess we will have to wait for first game of season

    I'll wait for then, although I think they might be showing friendlies too.

    If it is just IP based then happy days. That all seems a bit too easy though ;)

    That link says £45 for replays. I thought it was live matches and around £100

    No you don't. I signed up successfully from Portugal with a UK e-mail and Visa card. And you don't have to give your home address.

    I'll try it when I'm home from work with a VPN, see if that makes it any different.

    Yes I can see the content. Somewhat surprisingly, they didn't ask for a postal address Nick.

    Of course we don't yet know how well the live video stream will work on matchdays. The previous provider failed to connect to the BBC audio feed a number of times last season.

    Well I had to give a UK billing address for my UK Visa card. Maybe they've changed it then.

    That's good. Most Portuguese Debit cards are 'Electon' by default, so cannot be used to make purchases online. They charge an annual fee of 20€ for a credit card, so I just use my UK Debit/Credit cards for online stuff. I've pointed out that as a result it means the bank in Portugal loses out on most of my purchases, but I might as well have talked to the wall. Shame really.

    There's places you can order pre-paid credit cards online. That will show as whatever country you buy them from.

    Has anyone managed to get iFollow videos working on their TV? It works on my PC and iPad but not TV. And yet the old service worked just fine.

    I don't think an App is working yet, although if you have mirroring or HDMI from your computer you could just plug it in to the TV that way.

    I´ve always used the method that Nick suggests. I think that if you don´t have HDMI out on your pc you´ll have some kind of video out which you can then buy an adaptor for to use an HDMI cable. Same for the TV end too

    I'd advise anyone planning on trying to get this working with a VPN waiting until after the first game of the season before they commit any money towards it. You don't want to spend £110 on something that might not work so best for someone to test it first.

    Actually, you can't watch them all because televised matches will be excluded from the service.

    Is that definite? Seems a bit restrictive if a game on Sky here affects someone the other side of the world. The NFL equivalent has a similar blackout which is a right arse.

    Has anybody used TunnelBear, its $60 for the year for unlimited data, I have just asked what the download/Upload speed is. Any other VPN's people would recommend?
