Dunno if this will help bog but I have been able to watch a lot of Fulham games, I was told about an APP call Live Sports. You generally get a range of English games, mostly Premiership but so far all of the play off games have been shown, so I am quite confident Bharat game on Tuesday will be on the menu. Oh yes, it’s free. It is called LIVE SPORTS+

Thanks Peabody I will try. I like the word 'free'. Would this be watched on my computer?

Theory has it you could use a VPN service, for example I use NordVPN in the states.

From there you can access the web from any country on their list (you select a server to channel your internet traffic through), say for example the US. With a monthly subscription to ESPN for 5 bucks, you can then log onto the espn site as though you were watching from the US.

I have managed this to access UK sites from the States that were previously out of reach for me when they used an IP lookup to verify location, and also verified the same when using my own site that records IP addresses accessing certain pages whilst 'logging on' from different Countries.

Obviously someone else on here would be better to provide the full tech details, but that's it in a nutshell.

I watched the two semi finals  on Now TV using my Samsung Smart TV. Logging in for the first time wasn't straightforward ,( nothing that involves modern technology is easy for me) you get access to Sky Sports Channels for 24 hours. at a cost of £9.99. I did the tuning in a couple of times during the day to ensure I had the hang of things before the match and once set up it was a doddle. Good reception, no transmission breaks, just half time adds and Sky pundits who seem very pro Brentford just now.

IF you've got a smart phone you can watch it on that. You would need a 4G or 3G signal on your phone which will depend which field you are in (or a connection to the camping site's WiFi if they've got one). If it's the 3G/4G connection then you also need a reasonable amount of data unused on your phone plan. Then you need to download the NOW TV app and create an account. (You can do that any time from anywhere so don't leave it too late to get it set up.) Once you've set up your account you open the app and click on the three lines at the top left. You need to buy a day pass for Tuesday. I have never used the app on a phone but only from a PC so I'm not sure how you buy a pass using the phone (I've had a quick look but can't see it). Perhaps someone else can tell you. It is possible that you have to set up the account and buy the day pass via a PC in advance but I don't know. Then on the day and time of the match you open the app, click on sports, and then (I think) it's "Watch now". Ideally I would sit in your car with the engine running and your phone on charge. Good luck.

Come on, it's a final, must be worth £9.99 to see it on your TV in UHD rather than some cr4ppy laptop feed?

Twig is right Bog -  has to be worth if and no more expensive than Fulham Tv match pay / view. Totally understand how complicated it can seem but plenty of time to get your kids to sort it out . You , of all people, have to be there - the white wall still exists -get initeithFernhurst and the rest of us ! COYW!

It's the silly old sod again. I am going for the £9-99 for a day. Can someone tell me if I can stipulate the day now?
