RoyalBlue Having used the Red Button last night, I think I will pay a tenner for iFollow for future midweek home games and let the club have the benefit of that (tiny I know) extra bit of income.

The quality of the picture on the Red Button was absolute crap, particularly when compared to that which I've experienced with iFollow this year) and the game was also filmed from a single camera high up in the West Stand.

Our daughter was watching on iFollow in the US and reckoned at least two cameras were used, whilst she also benefitted from being able to see replays of key incidents throughout the game.

Oh, and the Sky commentator also displayed the Dellor/Gooding trait of struggling to distinguish between our players. At one point Ejaria (Olise) apparently played a good ball from right of centre out to a player wide on the left who also happened to be Ejaria! At least the Sky commentator has the excuse of only turning up to watch us once or twice a season!

That piece of commentary made me smile too. Although, tbf, he knows his stuff. He said something like “Ejaria, has a tendency to slow things down every time he gets the ball”.

From the other thread, no, I don't believe it is.

Is there actually a way to get it on the TV other than with an HDMI from a laptop? This is the only thing putting me off paying the £10

I'm not sure if something like a firestick or google chromcast would be helpful.

My apple loving family love to harp on about Apple TV or whatever overpriced POS it is.

Not that it's much help, but a wireless HDMI may be helpful. I got one cheap when Maplin was closing down but I'm sure you can get a good price on amazon.

This is the most comprehensive guide we've seen. https://www.cambridgefansunited.org/blo ... experience

I only skimmed it and didn't see an answer to your query but you or someone with a keener eye might do. Start looking about half way down.

This from Football Supporters Association:

There's been much discussion on the topic of streaming, and our survey into the performance of iFollow (and clubs' own streaming platforms) has now launched. More details here.

It's imperative that to be taken seriously by the EFL the survey needs the biggest possible sample size, which is where you come in.

https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/efl-streaming

Share the above link to the survey among your members / followers

The survey will probably run until the end of next week, so there's not a huge amount of time to gather the data we need in order to feedback to the EFL.

STAR Liaison writes - I did the survey in about 3-4 minutes and it's quite straightforward so if you've watched any streamed games please take part.

If they're keen to maximise the response rate, why the short window to reply?

Mixed messages from the FSA there.

Seems they're not really fussed on reading feedback, just on having ammo to go chest thumping with.
