    I asked in the iFollow chat and received this; Today’s game is not available for live broadcast on the iFollow platform as it has been selected to be shown live by our broadcast partners. You will still receive live audio coverage and full match replays.

    It's on Sport Digital in Germany. Annoying paying 13p euro a year when this keeps happening

    " Today’s game is not available for live broadcast on the iFollow platform as it has been selected to be shown live by our broadcast partners"

    WTF does that mean?? Small print stated certain games i.e. SKY coverage may mean matches not available in some countries where it is being shown but I have paid a years subs and it is now something like 4 matches that have not been shown including the debacle the other week when the whole of the 1st half video was about a minute behind the audio. Seriously Pi**ed off with iFollow ATM.

    But I am in Italy!! So if it is on ANYWHERE in Europe live they are saying it wont be available?? 130 euros for nearly half matches so far not watchable on iFollow. not fit for purpose IMO. probably got us in the small print so little we can do about is I suppose.

    Just Posted this on iFollow live chat....
    "Why is the match not video but commentary only. reason stated that it is on German digital TV . however I am in Italy and do not get German TV. Are you telling me if a match is broadcast live ANYWERE in Europe all other countries are excluded? Where is that in the small print? I have paid 130 euros for a year and half matches have either had technical faults e.g. sound 1 minute ahead of video as per last match for whole of 1st half or been unavailable to view due to SKY. VERY DISSATISFIED"

    Response:
    "This particular game has been selected for international broadcast and as a result will not be available on iFollow.

    Greater blackout rules can be found on:
    efl.com/broadcast-schedule/ or for greater blackout details we suggest you contact the club at the ‘Contact Us’ link at the bottom of the club’s site.
    Carlos "


    I responded with:

    "So your definition of International broadcast is shown live in One country ??? Really??"

    So the bottom line is if any overseas broadcaster takes the option to show the match live if you are not in that country ..tough sh*t. I wonder if I was the only one that feels that was not made clear in the SP?

    Me too. Did the commentator say that Nigel Adkins was one of the names in the frame or did I miss hear him
