So, I want to watch the match tomorrow on my laptop and have bought a pass for the game . Previously I have watched games in my phone via the ifollow app but seem unable to download this to my laptop. Can I just log in and watch it on the scunthorpe United website? ThanksSeptember 4, 2020 at 3:27 pm #194304
I have downloaded the EFL App to my iPad and just hoping for the best, EFL say you only need the basic pass for watching paid games or the early games and just login to iFollow on your Tablet or laptop to watch, just hope it’s a better experience than the Lincoln game last week.September 4, 2020 at 3:48 pm #194305
Laptop, open the Scunthorpe webpage, make sure you are logged in to iFollow, look for the interview with Gillihead, click to watch it and if it’s OK you are good to go for tomorrow’s game according to iFollow.

Brilliant thanksSeptember 5, 2020 at 12:03 am #194326
I intended watching the game tomorrow and registered as requested, then completed the payment section until reaching the part which says (enter a promotional code to redeem youroffer), I have looked all through things and do not have any idea where to access this promotional code, nothing is ever bloody simple is it, and the Scunny office is still closed, so no help from that direction.
I shall be bloody annoyed if being a long standing season ticket holder and cannot access free games starting next week.
So it will be radio Humberside if it is being broadcast.September 5, 2020 at 5:39 am #194327
It’s not free tomorrow owing to ‘EFL regulations’ – see note at the end of this link:
For league games you’ll be sent a link as a ST holder as long as the club has your e-mail address, as advised here:
I’d advise contacting the club in advance on the e-mail address included on the link below; I did this today in order to both check that they had my correct e-mail address and to add the club to my ‘address book’ as advised here, getting a fairly prompt confirmation (though I wouldn’t necessarily expect that over the weekend):September 5, 2020 at 8:39 am #194329Laurence QuinnParticipantOffline

You don’t need a promotional code, i didn’t have one and was wondering, so i just filled it in without one and it worked fine , got confirmation straight away,,,September 5, 2020 at 9:06 am #194331
it is just a thing that most business’s use in case you are offered a code, but just check with your device that it plays the Gillihead video if you haven’t got the full package because I got the information from the club, so don’t wait until the game starts.September 5, 2020 at 4:21 pm #194354Iron AgeParticipantOffline

As I understand it the promotional code is for free live streaming for season ticket holders until matches can be attended. They will send the code by email before the match. (when I say “will” maybe I mean “should”).September 5, 2020 at 10:37 pm #194388
Thanks guys for your much needed advice, but after spending a long time last night looking for that bloody ncode, before giving up, I decided not to bother trying today, because if I had got a repete of yesterday frustratio, I would probably thrown the computer through my office window ha ha!!
Hppe next weeks game is simple for season ticket holders to access.September 5, 2020 at 11:16 pm #194390
There was no code for today’s game; you had to pay for it, leaving the space for the code blank as there wasn’t one.
Next Saturday, if you have a season ticket you should receive a code, so you should insert that instead of payment.
It’s either/or, not a combination of payment and promotional code. Next week it’s a code if you have a season ticket, or payment if you haven’t. Note the club’s advice about spam filters and e-mail addresses though.September 6, 2020 at 1:47 pm #194398
Thanks Yorkiron, I understand it now pal, but with it being the first time I had tried to use this i-follow thing, and it asked for a code, I had no reason that a code wasn’t needed. I understood the £10 fee thing and was trying to pay when that code thing happened, I just hope that there are no bloody snags next Saturdaybut do not hold my breath on it.
Just one qustion, when Scunny are playing away after next week, how will be able to pay, assuming that those away games are not free, will we nee a code for away matches??September 6, 2020 at 2:03 pm #194400AlfredParticipantOffline

Does anyone know who gets what out of the £10 of my well-earned money?.September 6, 2020 at 3:52 pm #194407
The clubs are getting the money Alfred, and the away games Barton will be like Tuesdays game at Lincoln you will order it like the Port Vale game, how the money works out between home and away clubs I don’t know, but a mate of mine who supports Rotherham says in the Championship he understands that it is estimated how many away supporters would normally attend and any more goes to the away team, but that isn’t confirmed and may be different in league 1 and 2.September 6, 2020 at 3:56 pm #194408
I would presume it goes through which clubs website you buy the pass from no? That would seem the simplest way to tell which club you were a supporter of?September 6, 2020 at 7:50 pm #194411NorthumbironParticipantOffline

“Just one qustion, when Scunny are playing away after next week, how will be able to pay, assuming that those away games are not free, will we nee a code for away matches??”
I’d imagine you will need to pay for away games, and there won’t be a code – the use of a code is in lieu of payment for all games covered by a season ticket i.e. league games only, hence the need to pay yesterday.
I believe this is true of the Lincoln game on Tuesday, based on my reading of what the club has stated here:
“Does anyone know who gets what out of the £10 of my well-earned money?”
This reply on a Peterborough message board about their game on Saturday may be correct (I was told this by a mate who supports them who seems to think the poster is the type who’d be in the know):
“So the club get £5.83 – less the EFL/ifollow fee for providing the service – for each purchase of the stream through the Posh official web site. It’s pretty poor, but at least it’s something. How many people will be watching tomorrow? Be good if we were told.”
I’ve no idea whether it’s right or not, but there’s every chance MacAnthony will have stated that outright, given he has his own podcast now in order to blather on about every subject under the sun. I shan’t be trawling through episodes to find out though…September 6, 2020 at 9:49 pm #194426
Didn’t they say a couple of weeks ago the clubs got all money until fans are back in the ground, I can see all games will be shown to away fans because I don’t think away fans will be allowed for a few months yet.September 6, 2020 at 10:43 pm #194427
Don’t know how that would work though Mick as what would stop a home fan going to the away teams website and purchasing it through there.
Hopefully until grounds are allowed to be used unrestricted we will continue to be allowed to watch. Which should mean for the entire season.September 7, 2020 at 12:16 am #194430
Surely for away games it will work as per Tuesday night’s game i.e. we pay to watch away games through our club’s website rather than theirs. There’s no reason why we should get free access via a code, as we wouldn’t get free access to away games as a season ticket holder, nor for home cup games.
No idea who gets the money, but as we’ve all signed up to iFollow Iron (or whatever it’s called) initially, it would be easier to pay for away games on there and let the clubs sort out the revenues than for us to have to register as home fans each time in order to access a stream for an away fixture. As hinted above, it couldn’t be offered free to away fans as home fans would be able to register with the away club’s iFollow and watch for free.
It surely makes sense to be able to watch all games, home and away, for £10 via the iFollow account to which you’ve registered, but to get free access via a code if you’re a home season ticket holder for the games for which you would normally access via your season ticket.
I may of course be wrong, but I’m hoping (without a great deal of confidence) that common sense/logic is being applied by those in charge…September 8, 2020 at 11:29 am #194449Deereyme66ParticipantOffline

To be honest, a tenner to watch a single game of football, with only a couple of cameras and occasional commentary issues, is not exactly the deal of the century for any game.
How much does Sky cost for the whole month? £30? £10 feels quite a lot. I might pay a fiver (although watching a Scunny game online leaves me pretty cold).
Can you get a season-long subscription or do you have to sign up game-by-game?September 8, 2020 at 11:44 am #194451BigLeftToeParticipantOffline

You can sign up for a season if you’re not in the UK (or make it seem as though you’re not in the UK). Cost is £140 so works out about £3 per game (only league games are included).September 8, 2020 at 11:45 am #194452

I see. On balance, I think the 3pm Saturday black out is still probably beneficial for clubs like ours but it would have been interesting to run an experiment on it this year, given that I suspect a number of fans won’t want to return to grounds this season, even when they are allowed to.September 10, 2020 at 6:59 pm #194527Iron AgeParticipantOffline

I am a season ticket holder and received my code. Going through the process I get as far as the payment bit but it does not accept it. I have entered another credit card to no avail, help please me Mister-ton Mick.September 11, 2020 at 1:06 pm #194551
I got my code yesterday and it worked OK. Contrary to what I’d expected, I was still required to ‘pay’, in my case using PayPal, and additionally insert the code (probably best to copy and paste to avoid errors), then confirm the transaction.
When the receipt came through it announced a payment of £0.00.
I’d initially just inserted the code and assumed this would be sufficient, but it was necessary to attach a method of payment too, despite there being no ‘payment’. Not as intuitive as I’d expected it to be, if I’m honest…September 11, 2020 at 11:39 pm #194573
ub on Thursday, I entered as instructed, and amazongly every thing went through ok, nw on Saturday what do I do to access the game???, please advise guys.
