My streaming is like I'm on dial up

And before you say it, I am on super fast BT broadband

Can’t believe Talkport are doing live coverage of BFC reserves v MTFC reserves . Bizarre!

It's totally different tonight! This is like watching a proper televised game, nothing like the normal ifollow service.

Mine is jumpy like others though, I've reset my internet and it's made no difference.

Mine was fine for about half an hour or so then started buffering. I'm guessing it's due to traffic coming on for the second half, maybe those thinking it was a 7.45 kick off!

If it doesnt get any better than this then i'm not subscribing next season. Not as good as previous years for me. As I go to most games, having the ability to watch the match the following day doesnt do owt for me either sorry.
Tonights streaming was shockingly bad, and i normally have no download speed issues

Overall I was impressed with the coverage and quality. I only got the second half as I'd only just got home but good quality streaming and good quality coverage with various angles making it very clear our first 'goal' definitely did not cross the line completely. I'd prefer to have Martin Shaw's commentary though, he's very knowledgeable and I love the excitement and passion he brings without ever being blindly biased.

Watched from start to finish and it was superb from my perspective. HD-type quality with no buffering. Thought the commo was good and the different camera angles / replays, etc. made it feel like a normal televised game.

I had a commentary delay that started when I was sending emails at the same time. I don't know if it's the bandwidth I've got or the computer trying to do more than it could cope with. However, when the email was closed a click on the refresh button brought the picture and commentary back together better - just a split second delay as the sound of a kick on the ball was just after the action had taken place. But that's nit picking.

if you missed the original video live broadcast, you can watch it back here if you are an iFollow subscriber --> https://www.mansfieldtown.net/matches/f ... 5-dec-172/

Worth remembering that when you subscribed, no-one expected that any games would be shown live on video. And they weren't in previous years either. Clearly for live video, you need a better and more consistent internet connection than just for audio. It's not just download speed like when downloading a film when the speed can be fast then slow etc and it doesn't make any difference. I had the video on in front of me on my laptop at the ground, and the wifi at the ground just wasn't consistent enough to sustain the picture. That wasn't the fault of iFollow, and would have been the same if trying to watch BT Sport online or Sky Sports skygo.

Up untill the Blackpool game I was able to have the commentary and the video open and sinc them both. This is easy to do.You just pause the link that is ahead. I am going to try it again for the next game.I was told that you are not allowed to watch and listen on two seperate tabs . I was informed it was a decision made by th EFL.
I had to listen to Blackpools commentary on the game. How is it that Blackpool are able toscreen with commentary but mansfield can't? Just to push the point I told the the rep on line my wife was visually impaired , which most people believe cos she married me lol, so she needs the commentary but i want to watch the game and so I asked why I should have to pay for two licences ....... then there was silence no reply . I love watching the game but I relly want to hear martin Shaws dulcet tones too.
