The EFL has today unveiled iFollow, an innovative digital live streaming and content platform that will revolutionise the way football fans overseas can follow their EFL teams.

iFollow will, for the first time in English football, enable EFL fans based outside the UK and Ireland to watch their team during the regular EFL season. With an estimated 270,000 EFL fans based outside the UK, iFollow will allow clubs to enable their supporters to follow the action wherever they are in the world.

Kicking off at the start of the 2017/18 EFL season, overseas subscribers will pay the equivalent of £110 per season for the service which will provide coverage of up to 46 live games per club. More than 1,500 matches will be available in HD quality, with iFollow showing every EFL league match live unless that match has been selected by the EFLís overseas broadcast partners.

OK, so I'm a tight arse - but sort of free thanks to NBC right now. (assuming my cable company continue carry it on a package I have to pay for anyway to be able to watch any TV.)

Fantastic news and about high time too! Will soften the blow of relegation enormously should the worst comes to worst. This should be implemented in the Premier league too

If it's anything like the platform behind the radio coverage that Palace Player uses then don't expect too much. Unless you're a fan of buffering.
