Argyle own TV next season.
I am hoping to beable to watch the away games next season like we been doing
That is highly unlikely for UK residents. Nearly all the League 1 clubs (not Argyle) have voted against it.
Does anyone want to try and see if this can be bypassed by a good vpn?
I Do hope the club use pre season games to test the new website thats coming very soon and the streaming service so they can detect any bugs or faults before the season starts.
With the website being a new server and a new overhaul they shouldnt trust that its going to work because they are uploading in the same way
Regarding using a VPN..? You probably won't be able to get an answer on that until the new system which comprises of two main elements is in place? I do know one thing... Argyle will really be on the case to make sure you can't use one.

Plymouth Argyle are quitting iFollow and the EFL’s digital platform to produce their own packages for fans.
The League One club have appointed Other Media to develop ‘a cutting edge website’ and Argyle app for iOS and Android users.
Meanwhile, StreamAMG will lead on the club’s new streaming service.
Fans have relied on iFollow this season to watch Argyle in action while their games have been played behind closed doors during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Streaming promises to be an important source of income for clubs in the future, even after Covid-19.
So the move made by Argyle to leave iFollow is a significant one by them.
The combined website, app and streaming service is scheduled to be up and running by the start of next season.
Work on this project has been ongoing for a number of months behind the scenes at Home Park.
Reliability, ease of use, and quality of experience were all driving forces behind the decision to invest in a new digital offering for the Green Army.
Argyle head of marketing and communications Jamie Yablsey said: “This is a really exciting development for the club.
“This project allows us to produce our own digital solution, controlled by us, designed specifically for Argyle supporters.
“Not only will these new platforms offer a better, more reliable experience for Argyle fans, but they also provide us greater opportunities to enhance and amplify the Argyle brand – in line with the club’s long-term ambition to become a sustainable Championship level club.
“To do that, we need to grow our fanbase, engaging effectively with our current supporters, as well as inspiring those who are lapsed, or not yet interested in Argyle.
“The club is in an exciting place - we have a strong story to tell, the right people involved, and we now have the tools to press forward.”
More information and previews of the website, app and streaming service will be revealed as the project unfolds.
The new digital services will kick-start a long-term supporter services project at the club.
There are plans for a ‘single sign-on’ system, bringing areas like ticketing, retail, streaming and hospitality together in one easily accessible account.
George Crabb, managing director of Other Media, whose partner clubs include West Ham United, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Plymouth Argyle, an historic club that understands the value of putting the fan’s digital experience at the centre of the club’s development plans.
“Argyle join our growing network of clubs delivering customised digital products, powered by our Clubcast Fan Experience Platform, who are seeing the benefits of developing a strong digital strategy that places the fan experience at the heart of new engagement and commercial opportunities.
“Building stronger ties between the club and the fans is vital as we emerge from the Covid crisis.
“We’re looking forward to launching a range of new digital products in the next few months.”
