Home games only. I believe we will receive a code prior to each game

How do County Cricket clubs make their money this season? All games are being streamed for free, including T20.

1. Logged in via iPad. Hit "watch live now", got a black screen.

2. Logged in via PC. Hit "watch live now", got a black screen.

3. Logged in using browser on my TV. Hit "watch live now", got black screen.

4. Logged in on iPhone. It worked. Connected iPhone to tv, only got commentary, screen blank.

So as long as I'm prepared to sit holding my phone I can watch the game, which is a tad frustrating. I don't think I will bother in future.

The service wasn't great today. They need to do better going forward to keep customers

Does anybody know if it is possible to watch iFollow on TV using a Firestick?

If this is with regard to watching om Firestick, I don't think so (it was set up by my son a few years ago).

It is, there is an internet browser App called Silk that has a desktop mode option. This may allow you to logo on and watch via the club website rather than using the ifollow App. It is not something I have tried myself but may be worth asking your son to give it a try for you.

Thanks Amberexile I'll try to download or ask my son to have a look.

Further to my troubles trying to watch on ifollow, has anyone successfully watched the game on iPad? Or on Samsung tv using the installed web browser? I'm wondering what the reason might be that I couldn't get the coverage to play.

This season only watched Cheltenham, it worked on an iPad. Haven't tried smart TV browsers - we have two Samsungs - but last year they didn't work and were known not to. I assume the EFL would have to pay Samsung?

Thanks George. My iPad is a few (6?) years old. I wonder if that's a factor? Frustrating not being able to get clarity from ifollow themselves.

Edit: seems you're right that watching via smart tv browser seems not to be possible.

As long as your iPad's software is up to date or as up to date as it could possibly be, it should work. Do you use the EFL iFollow app from the App Store, or safari/Chrome?
