iFollow/ForestTV - how to..

Redemption

just like that!
They've just appointed a new head of media and communications, Tom Rawlings. He used to be at Warwickshire Ceicket Club, and he's now in charge of rasing Forest's profile.

Ah, thanks, I didn't know that.
And the „request a photo!“ thing is not a Forest idea, many other sporting organisations have been doing that for years.

It is good, however, that Forest are actually joining the 21st century at last, on many matters.

Now, if they could only sort out the coffee…

Made contact with Forest TV who promptly replied and defo, no streaming service Forest TV/iFollow in Premiership due to broadcasting rights. Loved the radio Nottingham commentary, shame. Here in the US, Paramount carry a lot of Premiership games live plus there are other options.

I'm also missing out on the iFollow audio only commentary. I mailed the club, but no response. I'm trying to work out how I can listen BBC Radio Nottingham online whilst outside the area. Possibly with a VPN? I know you can trick BBC Sounds from abroad into thinking you are UK based. I don't think any VPN service allows you to narrow this down so you can connect with a server that is Nottingham based? Plus I don't even think the commentary is available online, even if you are logging on with a Nottingham-ish IP address? Radio only?

Nope.

Not possible.
The only way I could think of which is remotely possible is getting a machine in the coverage area with TV capability (as RN is on Freeview) then sharing the card via something like Plex... But not going to be achievable for most people

I emailed the club this morning asking about audio commentary on the website/app for those of us not local.
No response except for a generic email telling me how I can listen/watch all the Championship matches

37 hours before the start of the season and still no information on forest website about content and cost of Forest TV.
I have had a generic email reply from Forest TV but I do not trust the information as they talk EFL not Premier league which are two different organisations with their own broadcast rules.
The Newcastle game is live on radio 5 but that is of no use to us outside the UK as sport commentary tends to be blocked.

There is and will be no IFollow/Forest TV in the premiership only regular TV and its usual approved streaming outlets! Got a direct answer from them when I asked about it. It is a matter of "broadcasting rights".

Yep, this is the correct answer. “Forest TV” as it was is pretty much dead now. It will only show prerecorded stuff like interviews and whatnot and maybe some highlights (well after matches are played, of course).

A shame, but there it is, the Premier League is all about the money, not the supporters.

What about just audio commentary from BBC Nottingham?
Is that dead too?

For now, it certainly seems to be the case, yes.

I have had no reply to my query to the club as to whether or not the audio-stream of Radio Nottingham will be available, so it is not looking likely.

Yeah, they haven't responded to me either.
I've messaged Dave Jackson at BBC Nottingham to ask if he knows.

For tomorrow at least, the match is the featured game on 5Live.

That should be available throughout the UK on AM, Digital and in the BBC Sounds app.

The sounds app may need a VPN if you're outside of the UK.
