Iíve just purchased the game on Tuesday and was wondering can I watch it directly on my smart tv or does it need to be through a device? The email says to download an app but they donít appear when I search on my tv but I can use the internet and log in to the Swindon website through it.

It won't work on the TV directly, you have to use a laptop and link up with a HDMI cable.  It will look like it will work directly, using a browser, but the video won't load.  I am not aware of any Apps that work on Smart TV's yet.

if be surprised if you get it working directly on your smart TV browser. try playing a video from the I player bit of the site.

even android TVs usually restrict which apps can be downloaded to it compared to a phone or tablet.

so I reckon you'll have two choices.

 1.Chromecast to the TV from a laptop (if you have Chromecast). it works ok but I found it slightly jerky though you do adjust. As Rob says - might be better through hdmi

2 watch on a laptop (via browser) or phone/tablet (app)

not an expert though. anyone else?

I'm lazy so I chromecast to my TV via Android box. The quality isn't as good as HDMI but it does the job.

It's a widget that you plug into the HDMI input of the telly that allows you to show video from your phone/laptop on the TV. But if you don't have HDMI inputs, it's not going to help you.

I tried to no avail to watch the Colchester game, receiving a 'not available' message. Is it possible that this is because I live an hour or so from Colchester? Am I likely to have more success for the Northampton game? Any help gratefully received.

that's a bit odd, not sure why it was unavailable. can't believe it's your proximity to Colchester

is it available to purchase there now?

Ah, seems to be available but asking me to create an account. I already have an account for audio commentary. Do I not use the same one?
