  • No apology?
  • 'makes sure VPN working' 
  • You can't vpn it on the countries listed.
  • I have to say too, that last time this happened, my VPN could not crack access even when choosing 'dark' countries from that list such as Hungary or Luxembourg. I imagine that Sky are responsible for that technical aspect and will have fairly sophisticated blocking mechanisms at their disposal.
    It's possible that your real location is being picked up by your browser using it's geolocation api. I had this once when wanting to watch sky go in Mexico. Make sure you clear out cookies and change your browser settings to block sites accessing your location. It's not always done through your IP address.
  • I have to confess I gave up with the EFL. They insisted there was no issue with it being shown in Portugal, despite it obviously being the case... I can get it via Now TV luckily.

    Surfshark has VPN's available for all those in bold from the club's list. 

    Europe: Albania, Cyprus, Faroe Islands, Gibraltar, Hungary, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova, Netherlands, San Marino, Ukraine, Vatican City

    Asia: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, China, East Timor, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, North Korea, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand

    Unfortunately I won't be testing as I'll be watching on Sky.

    My VPN is Surfshark. Not sure I rate it. For a long time they were struggling with BBC iPlayer. 

    Did you use it successfully for the last blocked game?

    Mate, could I ask a favour, see if you can check the Portugal situation for this game? According to the EFL the rights holder is Eleven Sports. Ta.

    I was using Surfeasy and Netherlands before and that worked fine. I have only recently started using Surfshark and it has worked for Netflix etc. 
  • My advice is do not trust that your vpn will deliver.
    If you find a short kosher local  £10 deal it is likely to be more reliable.
  • I have Express VPN and it worked for the last restricted match but I'll probably watch this one on sky seeing as there are no added features.

    A VPN itself isn't necessarily enough.  Sky track NordVPN servers, for example, and exclude them.  

    In any case, many VPNs do not mask other aspects of your location, for example the communication protocol managing the stream may give away the originating location.

    I haven't needed to use it for a while but what seemed to be foolproof was using chrome browser with WebRTC Leak Shield as well as a VPN.
  • Before the previous Sky game, against Accrington, a charitable soul on CL gave us the link to a live stream.  I don't have Sky and don't live in Mongolia or the Marshall Islands - so would be very grateful if he will do that again.   
  • Can the club show us the pre game and after game without restrictions?

    It would, if it could, but it can't, so it won't.

    Browsec logs some user data but don't stipulate what data they collect.

    From VPNCrew:

    Pros

    • Easy to Install: It is a one click install for the extensions as well as the mobile applications. The client is good to go right after the installation if the user is already subscribed to the service.
    • Fast Speeds: The speed for the fastest server is as good as the original speed on the service. The users can expect a fast and reliable connection on the network.
    • 36 Server Locations: With so many server locations, the users can easily bypass a lot of the geo restrictions, and the traffic density should also not cause any trouble with so many server locations in place

    Cons

    • Russian Jurisdiction: The jurisdiction and the local laws of the country don’t encourage the users to trust the service with their sensitive information. The opaque privacy policy of the company adds to the concern of the user.
    • Data-logging: The service provider has mentioned that there will be logging of some personal information while using the service. The details of this collected data is not discussed which leaves the user unsure about the product.
    • Customer Support: The customer services are not the best one for the product. You may have to wait for long hours for the reply, and then also may end up with irrelevant responses.
  • I have to confess I gave up with the EFL. They insisted there was no issue with it being shown in Portugal, despite it obviously being the case... I can get it via Now TV luckily.  
    Mate, could I ask a favour, see if you can check the Portugal situation for this game? According to the EFL the rights holder is Eleven Sports. Ta. 
    Eleven Sports only mention the Championship on their blurb, they never show anything from Leagues One or Two. This Friday they have Cardiff at 3.00 and Barnsley at 5.30. 

    This is what Danny from the EFL wrote to me on Jan 6th:

    Our overseas broadcast partners i.e. Eleven Sport will only purchase rights for particular matches and will never have the rights to all Championship or League One matches. You can view the international TV picks on our website at: https://www.efl.com/clubs-and-competitions/tv-games/international-games/. 

    If Eleven Sport have the rights to a particular Championship match then this will not affect your viewing on Valley Pass of Charlton’s match. The only matches affected on iFollow (or Club equivalent service) overseas are the specific matches where the rights have been purchased overseas.

    Happy birthday, by the way... 🎂 😊

    Sorry,no.
    Perfect reposte, :) nothing to do with the club.
  • I’m just chuckling at the fact that one of the regions given is “Middle East & North America”
  • A good test of geography that, I'd never heard of the likes of Northern Mariana Islands, Tokelau or Wallis & Gromit Futuna

    I’d watch it as a pay per view on Now TV if I knew how to. It doesn’t appear as an App on my Virgin Media TV feed. Is it web only?

    I've never used Now TV before, but I will be using it on my tablet and Chromecasting it to my TV like how I watch CharltonTV

    A disappointing selection of other matches on Sky on Friday, so I won't really gain much else for my Now TV fee.
    Cheltenham vs Tranmere
    Barnsley vs Reading
    Birmingham vs Swansea

    Have you got an Xbox in the house? Easy to use via one.
