The Argyle Fan's Trust would like to ask for opinions on the iFollow live streaming service.

The survey seems to be about watching games via ifollow, but muddies the waters somewhat by asking if we've ever watched OR listened. I have slightky differing opinions on watching and listening, so you should probably make it more clear whether your questions are about watching games, listening to games or both.

A very good point - the relevant question text is now edited to focus on watching only.

Thanks.

Ifollow+VPN is perfect for those who can't attend matches.

I Couldnt get it to work yesterday. Maybe in hindsight it was a good thing i guess but the service is poor especially charging £10 a game when most if not ALL streaming sites charge that for 24/7 use a month. You cant even get a replay for that £10.

I once made the mistake of paying for this pap. Kept on buffereing, dropping out and stopping. Normally my broadband is pretty fast as well.

Load a shite.

£10 a game having a laugh aren't you,

not even your netflix or your amazon prime videos are that much for a month with more then 90 mins of entertainment

Still cheaper than going to the actual match. Can actually watch it with a beer or two like an adult too.

I found it to be quite good for both Wimbledon and Oxford matches.

We'd like to see more opinions on this on the AFT survey.

I've never used ifollow nor would I. £10/ match is exorbitant and I think in the long term is damaging to the club. Fans should be encouraged to attend matches maybe tickets for a tenner would be better?

The initial driver for the survey is to measure the interest in protecting the traditional Saturday 3pm fixture, which is supposed to be sacrosanct.

Some would argue that the Boxing Day / New Year's Day fixtures should also be treated in the same way, as the bumper attendances over the festive period are often vital to lower league club revenues.

There is a potential "creep" towards more matches being available on streaming services like iFollow, with some arguing that it will adversely affect clubs financially overall, but with others suggesting that it increases exposure and also offers access to those (like disabled or elderly fans) who are unable to attend in person.

That's why we're running the survey, to try to assess the levels of interest and support for the service.
