Here's your Robins TV guide with answers to many of the queries the club has received ahead of the 2019/20 season's return

What games can I watch?

Non-Season Card holders are able to purchase a matchday pass for £10, unless a match has been selected for coverage by Sky Sports.

I am a Season Card holder and have received a voucher code. What do I do/how do I redeem it?

Once you are logged in scroll down and enter your voucher code on this payments page.

When will I receive my code?

Please note, AOL and Tiscali block communicator emails so you may have not received your code. However you can still send an email to Supporter Services - - and they will be able to provide you with a code.

Supporters with a Hotmail email address are advised to check their 'junk' folder.

When should I redeem?

As soon as you are able to. You can redeem your voucher code as soon as it has been emailed to you. You do not have to wait for any test streams ahead of matchday but it is advised to check your code and log in ahead of 2pm on Saturday when the Robins TV Live matchday show commences before kick-off at Blackburn Rovers.

Can I stream via more than one device simultaneously?

Yes you can login on two devices concurrently – if you want to use a different device at any point you must log off from one of them. Access to the stream is linked to your club account NOT the device.

Which browsers should I use?

The recommended browser is Google Chrome across all devices. Internet Explorer is not supported.

Can I use Chrome casting or other TV displays?

As per EFL guidelines the livestream is not supported by Chromecast and Airplay functionality. Robins TV streaming will only be supported on desktop and mobile browsers via the official iOS / Android City app.

Connections via desktop to TV via a HDMI cable will work.

Does my live video subscription allow access to live audio commentary when a match cannot be broadcast?

Yes, your live video subscription includes all audio streams. So, if a game is not available to watch live (e.g. because it has been picked for Sky TV broadcast), you can always listen to it.

Season Card holders who have opted for the free livestream WILL be able to watch all nine remaining games regardless of being selected for Sky TV. 

Will my existing seasonal or monthly subscription automatically renew? 

Yes. Monthly direct debits have now resumed, annual subscribers have a 90-day extension to their annual renewal date due to the suspension of the season.

My feed keeps buffering. What’s wrong?

I’m having issues with my video or audio feed. What can I do?

If there are no issues at the broadcast end, we will need to complete troubleshooting steps, these may involve confirming details about the device, software and your internet connection. *Please note, that it is your responsibility to ensure you are using compatible technology ahead of purchasing a live subscription.

How do I get a refund?
