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.
