Who can watch Saturday's match against Fulham (October 16th) live on QPR+?
The match being broadcast live in both the UK & Ireland and internationally means our video stream will only be available to view on QPR+ in Dark Market territories, where there is no television deal with the EFL in place. These are detailed below.
If you are based in a Dark Market territory and wish to purchase a live video match pass for Saturday, click HERE.
Live audio commentary is therefore the best way for all other R's fans to follow the action via QPR+.
Overseas R’s who have a live video subscription but are not in a Dark Market will be able to tune into the commentary. UK-based fans with a match commentary subscription can also tune in as normal.
To sign up for QPR+, please click HERE.
