In respect of domestic streaming, the EFL will return to the position as was prior to the pandemic when the live broadcast or streaming of any match in England, Wales and Northern Ireland is prohibited between the hours of 2:45pm - 5:15pm on Saturday afternoons.
EFL Clubs will have the right to live-stream midweek matches on iFollow or Club equivalent service, with Sky Sports also able to stream the same Championship fixtures to subscribers across their Red Button interactive and digital services.

As per Article 48 of the UEFA statutes there is an agreement in place which prevents games from the top 2 divisions being shown domestically during the blocked hours. This is a long-standing agreement to protect the attendances at all EFL grounds and this article has been re-implemented following a relaxation of this article whilst Clubs were unable to admit spectators.
If you live in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man or Channel Islands then the same broadcast rights will apply and therefore iFollow will not be available for games during the blocked hours (2.45pm – 5.15pm on Saturdays)
Up to a total of 48 matches will be available to watch live however, any games selected for Sky Sports or if your local broadcaster has obtained the rights to your Club’s fixture then this game will not be available to watch via iFollow. You can view a list of all TV selections, with the list being updated on a monthly basis throughout the season.
