Following iFollow’s successful introduction in 2017/18 for Cambridge United’s supporters based overseas, enhancements are being introduced to the live streaming platform ahead of the start of the new campaign at no extra cost to viewers.
As with last year, United fans based outside of the UK and Ireland will have the chance to sign up to the Club’s iFollow platform, on both a seasonal and match by match basis, to watch Joe Dunne’s men in live Sky Bet League Two action throughout the season.
The platform will also include the U’s head coach’s pre-match and post-match press conferences, player interviews, regular footage from the training ground and more.
There have also been major improvements across the platform, with added commentary services, a new graphics package and an improved app and video player included in the 2018/19 subscription in not only the Championship, but also League One and League Two.
Prices are as follows:
- International Season Pass - £110
- International Match Pass - £5
However, in a second development and in what is a first for English football, some Sky Bet EFL matches will also be made available to watch to supporters within the UK and Ireland throughout the 2018/19 season via iFollow.
Access to domestic live streaming must be bought on a match-to-match basis at a cost of £10 per fixture.
This development has been made possible due to the new broadcast agreement with Sky which was agreed last year, whereby EFL Clubs have been granted the rights to stream games to a domestic audience, in addition to their followers overseas which has been available since the start of 2017/18.
EFL Clubs will be able to live-stream in the UK and Ireland any league match via their respective iFollow (or equivalent) service that takes place outside the blocked hours of 14.45-17.15 on Saturday afternoons and that is not broadcast live on Sky Sports.
Fixtures taking place on Bank Holidays or Easter will be unavailable for streaming. Sky Sports will have the right to stream the same Championship fixtures to subscribers across their interactive and digital services.
Audio only commentary is also available for £45 per year or £4.99 per month to both overseas supporters and those based in the UK and Ireland.
