To be fair chaddy, I've watched every game since the onset of the pandemic and yesterday was the first time I've really had an issue. I find the picture quality to be very good and the commentaries ok too. It was annoying yesterday though and the lack of backup/customer service only compounded the fact that I missed the whole second half.

I watched the remaining games after the resumption post lockdown. Quality was decent enough.

I havent watched any stream game this season

I pussyfooted around wifey for a couple of minutes with a bit of a sob story and "hmm... not sure if I should...", etc. - knowing full-well that I would. "Philip... You don't have any hobbies, other t

The time lag doesn’t matter one bit. Just stay off Twitter until HT/FT and mute any ‘goal alert’ apps for 90 mins.   

As a 1960's vintage Rovers fan who has lived in the US for many years I am delighted by this development - even if we get relegated. I was resigned to Saturday being the last match that I could watch

Clearly some fans have had issues with iFollow but I’ve watched most games on iFollow since Lockdown 1 and barring a few hiccups such as lack of commentary, poor camera control the experience has been as expected of streaming technology. I don’t think it can be compared to Sky or BT coverage. 

Obviously not a substitute for actually being at the ground but a good second and it has allowed us to watch away games that we wouldn’t normally be able to do.

As I've already said a couple of times iFollow has worked very well for me. The only really irritating game was at Luton where the camera angle was very low (can't do much about that) and the camera work was terrible (Luton could fix that).

Yesterday I didn't have Rovers commentary for a few minutes but the away was working fine. I tend to toggle between them a bit to get a different view - the 5/10 minutes I listened to the Millwall commentaries they were very fair.

I'll be back in the ground as soon as I can but for now iFollow is the next best thing.

I've bought most games so far for a tenner each, only missed the Bounemouth, Swansea & QPR games so far.

The coverage has been alright for me so far touch wood. Yes it's a bit behind but I just mute my phone for 45 minutes, catch up with mates on my WhatsApp group at half time and then repeat for the second half. I can't understand anyone not watching it based on that.

Seeing as there isn't a great deal else to do I have quite enjoyed hooking my laptop up to the TV and settling down with a beer to watch the games. 

Hopefully only for this season though!

Once the game is underway, providing the buffering isn’t fubar’d, it is pretty steady.

The rest of the product is amateurish.

Buying a match pass is about as straightforward as you can get though.

Is that what happened?! That’s a new one on me!

Yeh, me too. I obviously wouldn't pay it but missed the whole of the second half as a result. Zero customer service other than generic advice such as reboot your router etc or send an email.

I'll be sending an email to ask for a refund today and see what happens.

Tag them (and the EFL and the club) on Twitter if you don’t get any response.

I don't Twit Stu!! Facebook's bad enough! Thanks for the advice though.

Tbf I don’t much either, it’s a dark place, but it does have its uses. A lot of companies use DM on Twitter a lot more readily than email.

Out of interest, for those of us in the UK, is it possible to buy the audio only stream for matches that are video-streamed on iFollow? I have work to be doing tonight so was planning to only listen in the background, but was presented with no option other than the tenner. Shelled out for it so I can listen, but it'll be a real test of willpower not to watch!

Quality of stream second half was terrible today.

It came good for Rothwell's run and goal but froze again so didn't see the replay of it.

When ever I get the frozen picture I reload at the "next game" stage and it's generally as good as it gets.

Commentary was a bit drab today, Lewis should stick to his day job, but when ever we play I can't help but listen to the radio anyway which is 30 seconds in-front. Also means I know exactly if we're going to score 🤣 or if opposition is going to score😭 .

How very rational of you!

Whenever I get the frozen picture (and it is too often) I whinge, complain and swear about what a crock of shite ifollow is...and then, when the opposition - predictably- score from their first and only chance.......

I was made to pay £10 to watch the game today yet I have a season pass. I'm not happy and I cannot find anyone to complain to.

 

I paid for an away night game in error not releasing it was covered on my ST - I emailed ifollow@efl.com  with my payment receipt of £10 as proof and in fairness they refunded it quickly.

It was grand for me, apart from the numbing commentary 

It was terrible. 

Got plenty of time for Neil Yardley and even Warren. He’s not a natural commentator but brings passion to it. I’ve mostly disliked whenever they’ve put someone else in. Cunningham was  the notable exception. At least have someone with personality.

I like the two lads as well to be honest, Thompson yesterday had a very boring voice though,  reminded me of the priest out of Father Ted. Only a young lad though, so I won't be too critical. 

Warren can be gas, cos of the two, he certainly is the most likely to be critical, even though both of them clearly try and keep that in check. To a level that's frankly absurd at times. 

You could get a few interesting candidates off this message board I reckon 😂

Thanks Mattyblue. I emailed them today, got a lovely sympathetic response, and got the refund. Great stuff!
