    PS4 browser useless as expected, mobile app casts audio but not video. Think a laptop with HDMI is the only way to get it on the TV.

    The audio is a few seconds ahead of the video, so might have to watch in silence like the Blackpool fans

    Why on Earth are they blocking casting to your TV, makes no sense.

    Wouldn’t you want it to work on as many platforms as possible as easily as possible.

    Not going to complain too much. At no point has it asked me to subscribe to anything or pay but the match is streaming!

    Very pleased with ifollow coverage - not so pleased about the game though.
    We are offering nothing so far and Blackpool look lively now and again.
    Glad I didn't make the trek up!

    Is it plugged in straight from the router that's the best way.

    Mine froze a few times as well. It’s not a buffering issue for me. The picture just freezes.

    Works perfectly via the app on iPhone or iPad.
    Crystal clear picture however the commentary is supplied by BBC CW and it’s about 30-45 seconds behind real time so if you subscribe to Sky or BBC score alerts you actually get those through before you see the bloody goal!
    Now that’s fucking annoying!

    ..it's also around 2 minutes behind, not exactly 'live' is it? Was frustrating today as I knew the the score from this forum post a good 2 minutes before the ction caught up!

    I’ve just switched the alerts off as I prefer to watch it & not know. Two minutes behind isn’t too bad considering.

    Pain in the butt that this season seems to be freezing all the time - didn’t have that issue previously last season.

    Overall it’s good though - better than just listening to CWR commentary that we used to get.

    Has anybody had any luck watching via VPN from the UK this season?

    VPN always worked for me but I pay for a decent one. The browser add on ones normal only have a few IP addresses and are easy to block.

    Yeah it needs to be decent VPNs, free ones will be blocked.

    Then need to try a few different locations to find one that isn't blocked.

    It's a mixture of PIA / Express VPN now.

    You could probably get a years worth of free VPN by just taking the trials from them all.

    I doubt the bars will, they would have to subscribe to ours or the other teams to be able to watch.

    You would be best using the bar's wifi and getting it on your phone.

    Thanks Nick. Wasn't sure whether ifollow offered a commercial subscription for bars and such. I'll go with your suggestion and watch on my phone.
