Live Streaming

I`m trying to stream live coverage of football through EFL ifollow but I`m unable to do so. I could previously but now I can`t and the EFL say the reason is that my IP address is blocked through VIrgin Media. Don`t have any problems using the wifi for anything else only ifollow. What can be done to correct it so I can live stream matches.

Re: Live Streaming

Are the matches you're trying to watch being screened on UK TV?  Are there geographical restrictions?

Did all matches stream OK on Virgin Media previously?

Have you tried a VPN?

Re: Live Streaming

and have you checked that the match you're trying to view is available - further to earlier reply, games are subject to geographical restrictions - if they are being shown on Sky they won't be available to stream in the UK etc.

The ISPs including VM will block the stream (not 'your' IP address) as far as I know.

You can check the 'blocked' matches on the efl website;
