    Working fine for me. I'm using Chrome, had issues with other browsers in the past so might be worth trying that.

    Try using a different browser.

    I can't use it on chrome anymore as I just get a black screen every time (even though it used to work fine)

    I use Internet Explorer now and it works fine.

    I’ve never been able to mirror no matter what I tried using my iPad & yet to hear anyone that has.

    I used a laptop on Tuesday with HDMI lead to my tv which worked but there’s a loss of picture quality when you do. Can’t decide what’s best to be honest, better quality on a small screen or poorer quality on a big screen.

    I had loads of issues signing in, although I was pretty sure I had the right password. Asked for a reset email, didn't arrive. Tried to register again and I kept getting an error that the email address was invalid. It was 2.55 was just about to give up when I tried using IE rather than Chrome and the reregistering worked. Plugged in my laptop to the Tele and all good. Odd but of stuttering at the beginning of the second half, but worth the effort. Shame there's no replays though, only the second time I've used iFollow.

    There's no proper replays from different angles etc, but there is a button to jump back 10 seconds so you can press that a few times and there's also a slow motion button, so you can watch incidents back if you wish

    i think they are shooting themselves in the foot really
    Most people would rather go to a game, and Ifollow will not stop that - i am sure it is nearly 100% additional revenue
    If they made it legit even at £10 a go for UK viewers - it would all be incremental

    I only use it for away games I can't go to :(

    If they make it for season ticket holders to watch away games in the UK to start with that might work as well.

    Experienced similar sorts of issues as you, including lack of success with password resets. I even struggled to set up a new account outside of vpn, to watch as a Uk-based mid-week match. And even once I got in by re-registering, having paid for a legitimate service I again experienced the black screen issue. Once again, I opened up a incognito window in chrome and then re-opened ifollow in a normal window. I have no idea why but this has always solved the issue. I'll try again on Sat and see what happens!

    Agree with all the comments - I can't see that having the ability to watch away or home games on ifollow should significantly hit seat sales (and would probably increase overall revenues). Watching at home doesn't make up for live action - you're either up for (travelling to and) watching the match live, or not.

    Well we’ve seen the expected attendance bump from promotion, so I’d say it’s made no impact currently and as this thread shows most who want it in the UK have until recently been able to get it.

    He’s saying he just opens the window, but loads iFollow in the normal window I think.
