iFollow (English football) Video Stream compatibility?


Recommended Posts

I have recently purchased a LG 55NANO86 TV.  Great TV which I am still getting used to!  I have a question about compatibility of the LG built in web browser functionality with the iFollow football streaming service, used in the UK (and elsewhere).  This is a paid for service which allows streamling of live football games.  I have tried several times unsucessfully to use the built in LG browser on the TV to access and watch a game.  Whilst it successfully shows the iFollow website and allows purchase of the stream, unfortunately the link to the live stream which should pop up a window with the stream, fails to load properly and leaves either a blank screen or a screen with the stop icon displayed.  Does anyone know if this is a known incompatibility issue or am I doing something wrong?  I have used the same iFollow website to view historical match highlights and this works without problem.

[Fortunately I can stream the iFollow stream to my iPad and then use an AV adaptor to mirror it to the TV so I can still get the match to the TV, but I would prefer to do his without the hassle of connecting the iPad.]

Any suggestions/advice welcome.

So my club say that you cannot watch it through the tv.

i also have the same issues as you. I can watch highlights on the same site but can’t watch the live games.

unsure if this is a browser compatibility issue? As it states edge, IE and Opera are not supported.

so any advice from others would be great fully received.

 

is it possible to install another os on the Tv?

Hi

I posed the issue to iFollow and they replied....

“the service does not support the following devices or features:

- Android boxes
- Smart TV devices
- Airplay or Chromecast functionality

You can try using an HDMI cable however we can not guarantee the quality of the picture if watching that way as our service was not designed for it.”

So looks like its just not supported on Smart TVs.  Shame as it would make it much simpler to watch. However, linking by HDMI cable via AV adaptor  from an iPad does work (for me) and picture quality is excellent.

      I have a 48" OLED (Model: OLED48A26LA).  after updating to software version 13.30.61 the Sky New Live feed just displays "There was a problem with this video [timeout]".  It worked perfectly before the TV software upgrade.
      Ive reinstalled the Sky News app but still doesnt work.  wifi etc is all ok.
      Any ideas?

      Hello,
      I have a problem with the subtitles when I try to share a video wirelessly directly from my PC to my LG 55SM9010PLA TV. I am not talking about sharing the whole screen (it lags a bit), just the video itself. 
      Sharing the video itself works well, but randomly the TV randomly does not recognise the subtitle, the sub option is not active in the TV menu, and there are no subtitles. It is in the same folder on my PC as the movie (.mkv), with the same name. In case of some movies it works, in case of others not, and I do not see the reasons why.
      First I tought it is becouse the format of the subtitle needs to be ".sub", becouse it worked with one movie. So I have learnt how to convert properly ".srt" to ".sub" - but still no success.
      Then I realised, in the case of another movie ".srt" worked on the TV, so I got really confused.
      I see no logic behind it.  Could you help me, what is the key here, what am I missing?
      Thank you!

      Hey, I have 3 NAS (DLNA) successfully connected to my OLED65C97LA since months and from one day to another all three have the same issue. So I must be a bug in LG TV? But I do not know what to do?
      - I can click on all 3 DLNA and its open a choice box for "music" or "image and video".
      - Click on all 3 DLNA for "music" and I get access to this DLNA and see my music files and can play it.
      - Click on all 3 DLNA für "image and video" and I get now only a black screen. I can move the cursor and open menus, but DLNA is black.
      Am I the only one with this problem?

      Hi All, I hope someone can point me in the right direction!

      I offered to help a friend repair his LG 42LB650V 3D TV; it powers ON, the red light at the bottom of the screen comes ON, then it flashes a few times on pressing any channel on the remote and that's it. (I think the TV then switches OFF). NOTHING is ever displayed on the Screen and my friend assures me that the screen is working (& has not been bashed or broken).

      I managed to get a 'broken screen' TV (again Model 42LB650V) and replaced the Power Board - no joy (behaves as before).
      I wanted to then replace the Main Board BUT found out that the two TVs (despite having the same Model Number 42LB650V) differ!:
      My friend's TV (the one I'd like to repair) Main Board has Markings: EAX65384004 (1.5) & EBT63439306.
      The 'Broken Screen' TV has Main Board Markings: EAX65384003 (1.2), I think the other Part Number is EBT62383444.
      The Two Main Connectors on the Main Boards are different!

      I continue to try and find a cheap Main Board for sale but to date have not succeeded - I have found some for £75 - 100) but hope there is a cheaper option and I continue to search!

      In the meantime I wonder if there is another workaround - i.e. is there a way that I can utilise the working screen TV but replace other parts (Main Board + Others) from the Broken Screen TV? Or, are the Screens also different and so my only option is to purchase an expensive Main Board?

      If so, am I constrained to searching for that exact Main Board (eg. EAX65384004 (1.5) & EBT63439306) or are there additional boards that are compatible?

      I hope someone can please advise me?

      Thank you.
