If by memory you are referring to storage I have 3.5GB available which I would assume is plenty for a live stream? Hopefully a simple re-install may be the solution.

Make sure you havn't got battery saving mode on (if on android) and you have a setting activated for it to use background data. Also check the settings for your screen to auto-lock. If it auto-locks itself after a minute, that could be your answer.

Thanks, I'll give that a go next time!

There seems to be a lot of negativity about Ifollow on here so I thought I would add my experience with it so far.
As I have other hobbies at the weekend at certain times of the year, although I am a season ticket holder I only get to 15-18 home games a season and 2 or 3 away games so I subscribe for the match commentaries for games I cannot attend.
The switchover from last years Stagsplayer to the new Ifollow was seamless with no need to re-register and everything just continued to work.
I do find that there is a slight delay on the commentary but usually less than a minute and does this really matter ? The only reason I can think it would matter is if you were at the game and listening to the commentary.
I have listened to matches on my PC, tablet and phone and had no problems with any of them. Even when I am travelling in the car with the commentary on my phone the only problems are if my phone loses internet signal which is no fault of the Ifollow app.
Last night I watched the Blackpool match and was very impressed with the quality - clear picture, no buffering, multi cameras, replays, and commentary - what more could you want ?
My only disappointment was that I couldn't listen to Martin's commentary. I tried opening a 2nd tab for the commentary but it shut down the video so I had to close the 2nd tab.
I would say that the 'live' video was about a minute behind (bet365 told me we had scored just before we won the free kick) but again is it really an issue ?

Overall I have been very impressed so far and think it is a bargain at £4.49 a month.

Dave Wayne, I agree...I think ifollow is very good, all works well and it has good / regular content.

Can't understand why people moan about the price to be honest
