Ross County TV
#1
Being a bit of a technophobe got a question as to how to watch the ppv games. Is it only on a laptop or phone you can watch the games or can you get them on the tv and if so how. Was fine for the first game as watched it on Sky and on Saturday was busy in the afternoon so watched the game on Alba at night. Do you get this through a sky box (cant find anything in their ppv) or how do you access it?

Hi there - yes you can only watch via laptop, tablet or phone - if your laptop has an HDMI port then you can hook the laptop up to your TV via HDMI cable.

Some smart TV's will allow you to watch the match but it's a bit hit or miss - best option is via laptop or tablet hooked up to your telly. 

You won't get the RCFCTV via Sky

It shouldn't be hard to bast it with chromecast or a similar device either.

What is chromecast, is that something like a firestick. As I say I am a technophobe being brought up in an era when a calculator and atari tennis game was cutting edge

Chromecast is OK if you know what you are doing - I think you'd be better trying to connect your laptop to your telly via HDMI - my MacBook doesn't have an HDMI port - but does have a mini type display port - so I purchased a connector cable which is basically mini display port to HDMI - works a dream.

Here's some basic info below on how to connect your laptop to your TV if you don't have HDMI - however, it may be that you do have an HDMI port it's just a mini type version - in which case you just need a converter cable which you'd get cheap from Amazon.



Check out this link below which offers further advice - I think job number one is to identify which ports your laptop does have - google the make and model number and it should help you:

Hope this helps you get setup so you can get the matches Smile

The Killie game last night was the first time I have used RCFCTV.  I was disappointed with the amount of pixilation there was particularly when the camera was moving.  Is anyone else experiencing this?  If so is there a solution other than a bottled one?

I was a tad frustrated for most of the second half due to pixilation. First half was perfect so it may just have been neighbours downloading stuff. I’ll need to tell them to avoid clogging the interweb during the County matches!!

The picture quite was pretty poor at times, up to a point where you couldn't make out the score line because of was so fuzzy, but hopefully it's something that can be ironed out in due course.

There was a major BT fault on Wednesday which affected a number of pathfinder networks across Scotland - a flooded BT exchange in Edinburgh apparently - this may have impacted on a few folks viewing experience - will be interested to see how things are during the Dundee Utd game.

Have to say that overall my feed was fine and only had a couple of momentary blips where the picture quality wasn't the best - but overall it didn't really impact on the viewing of the game.

How do folk find Ross County TV?

I am struggling with it and only used it once which took about a half hour to get in etc. It seems VERY flaky.

I am trying to get in Today and just getting a white screen with flicker going by.

I wish this was easier to use...

Have bought 4 games this season and only a slight glitch with the Kilmarnock game.

I've had absolutely no issues at all with it, service is fine, streams haven't crashed out or anything. Been fairly impressed with how good it is considering how last-minute it was all thrown together.

Well I finally managed to get by the flicking white screen Yesterday, paid for the game and it crashed out after about 10 minutes (7 minutes into the game). I tried for the entire game them to get back on without any luck. I tried various different internet connections of mobile phones on 4G etc but it would not work.

I will certainly try it again but will not be giving it too many more chances. I don't mind paying the money, in fact I would pay double if I was guaranteed to see the game, but it is way too frustrating when you should be able to see the game but something technological is preventing you from doing so.

I am surprised I seem to be the only one having these issues. Is anyone else using from outside the UK?

Im a season book holder so get these via ticket. Have to admit ive watched all home games on a Sony smart tv. I have got fast fibre bt broadband but too have buffering. Last 3 games have all been the same. Some last for 30 seconds but one was about 5 minutes and then had to reboot tv so lost about 10 mins that game.

Cant be easy and frustrating when others say its great and no problems and you cant get that. Grrr

Im in Inverness only so think the string would stretch that far

I've had no technical problems with it, but I have to say that it takes far too long for them to put up the replays of the matches. I was told they'd be up by midnight on match day and I don't think a single one has been up before midday of the following day.

Here in the States most matches are live at 10am and it's all but impossible to avoid finding out the result of the match before the replay is available- and even if I can avoid Twitter, Google alerts, texts from friends, etc. the final score is displayed on the webpage before you can even click "play!"

That said, since I can't make my annual pilgrimage to see a match or three in person I guess I'll take what I can get.

Have watched all our games including the cup games which were a bit ropey camera wise, but have to say overall it's been fine - PPV for most is very reasonable and no issues with away club coverage - like the fact you can select "home commentary"

Just the results that have been a bit of an issue :O(
