TV Licence for live ifollow games?
at 20:04 7 Sep 2018

Now that ifollow has some live games for UK users, I was wondering if anyone knew if it is ok to watch them without a licence? If it is I will subscribe. The question is, is ifollow classed as a 'channel'? Not 100% clear from below. I only choose to watch non bbc tv on catch up as I don’t mind ‘paying’ for the privilege by watching ads. But would get a licence for ifollow for games I can’t get to, but only if needed.

Did some digging and found these bits from :

If you watch or record shows as they're being shown on telly in the UK ('live TV'), you need to be covered by a TV licence. You also need one if you use BBC iPlayer
What counts as 'live TV'?
When we talk about 'live TV', confusingly it isn't necessarily a live episode of a programme, it could be pre-recorded.

'Live TV' is content that's being broadcast on a TV channel. This applies to all channels (including, say, +1 channels) on any mainstream TV platform, including Freeview, Virgin or Sky. Internet-only services such as YouTube or Netflix don't count, though.
Watching live foreign TV in the UK does require a licence
If you watch 'live TV' from a channel that isn't broadcast in the UK (including those picked up via satellite or online), you need to be covered by a valid TV licence.
This is regardless of the country of origin or the language of the broadcast.
