If I live in the UK or Republic of Ireland and subscribe to iFollow, will I be able to watch games on iFollow when travelling abroad?

No, in order to live stream games on iFollow you would need to purchase a separate pass whilst based abroad, that requires a local bank account and local address. Upon your return to the UK or Republic of Ireland you would not then be able to watch games but you would be able to listen to live audio match commentary on either of your passes.

I am logged in elsewhere, but want to follow the audio commentary on another device. Is this possible?

Yes. The system will automatically stop playback on any other devices and the most recent log in will take precedent.

I can't find a button to click through to the live video stream, how do I access it?

The buttons to click on to follow the audio commentary will not appear until 30 minutes prior to kick-off.

I have a different question that has not been answered. Who can I contact?

Please email iFollow@efl.com with any other queries.
