Anyone have ideas how to use smart tv to stream away matches, I have tried unsuccessfully via silk  browser and google to purchase a ticket but cannot get past sign in to log in, just says credentials are not right repeatedly. However silk works on my mobile,used this method successfully for the Stockport and Boreham Wood games,

My Samsung TV is a strange beast at best, using browser for streaming matches was a long winded failure. Even if I managed to log on wouldn't trust it to see out 90mins.

I have watched the mentioned games from start to finish with no problems then.

I’ve logged on through my Panasonic smart tv for Dagenham and Stockport. However it’s a right pain trying to type in on there and hit scroll bar etc. I find it’s best to start off and buy the pass on my iPad (I’m sure any tablet or phone would do the same), then log in on the TV for the game, just needing to type email address and password (keep it short!)

I tried going through the process plonking away with my remote keypad (a pain in the butt) several times & at the final hurdle was presented with a blank screen, my TV obviously smarter than me. Used tablet three times with no problems.

it's sign in or log in you need to log in. =,then it's straight forward.

Thanks for that I am in!!!! , I think on the previous away games it was a straight forward pay. The sign in part of it is misleading on this site.

Cheers

The live stream will require a browser that's compliant with current standards, or at least recent standards. Most smart TVs and other devices like consoles use proprietary browsers which probably don't get the necessary level of investment to meet those standards. They're added as a 'feature' so people can check Hotmail or Twitter, etc., rather than for streaming Netflix or anything equally strenuous - in most cases the manufacturer allows third parties like Netflix to make apps available for use on the device, which bypasses any issues with the browser.

Any device that uses Google's Android operating system, or Apple's iOS, will almost certainly be able to deliver the live stream, even if the software on the device is a few years old. The Digibox supplied by my internet provider is one such device and it works perfectly, though it was a pain in the ass using the remote as a keyboard to log in so I only did it the once.

A lot of new smart TVs do use Google Android but many more do not. Stick with laptops, tablets, phones, etc. and you should be okay. At least that way you can be reasonably certain that any issues you face are to do with your internet connection rather than the device itself.

I am using Fire stick and tonight was able to add Yahoo browser to the firestick and from there and with help  from Steve managed to sign in and connect to my Samsung tv.

The Stockport game worked great on my Samsung TV, however the Boreham Wood and Yeovil games would cut out every 5-10 seconds and go to a black screen before coming back. Decided that was unwatchable and used WBs method of laptop and HDMI

I think I am gonna pay it, but I'm not gonna be happy about it. It's a couple of kid-free hours which are pretty rare for me, and on reflection I'd probably pay twice as much for the break. I'm half expecting a very one-sided game, but which side I'm not quite sure yet.
