Colchester United are pleased to welcome supporters to our new club website, as plans continue apace for the new season on and off the pitch.
The U's were one of a number of clubs selected on a 'working party' to help develop the new sites and are now fully up and running.
It's the first time the official club website has changed for six years, and the new site will offer a much more positive experience for U's supporters.
The new website is device responsive, which means desktop and mobile/tablet users will see the same website for the first time.
Tuesday also sees the new iFollow video service launched fully for U's supporters from around the world.
Like its predecessor U's Player, iFollow Col U will provide behind the scenes access as well as the all important highlights.
For our overseas subscribers, we have full live streaming of all Colchester United first team games.
Kicking off at the start of the 2017/18 EFL season, overseas subscribers will pay the equivalent of £110 per season for the service which will provide coverage of up to 46 live games per club.
More than 1,500 matches will be available in HD quality, with iFollow showing every EFL league match live unless that match has been selected by the EFL's overseas broadcast partners.
Fans based in the UK and Ireland will still also have access to live audio commentary, highlights packages and exclusive content as part of the new offering, rebranded to replace the EFL's existing PlayerHD platform.
Given the changes in format between the PlayerHD and iFollow product, particularly for international subscribers, not all fans are legally able to be automatically rolled on to an iFollow package. These segments of subscribers will be dealt with as below:-
Domestic (UK) Monthly Subscribers: Rolling on automatically to an iFollow subscription (no action required from fans)
Domestic (UK) Annual Subscribers: Rolling on to an iFollow subscription, which will expire and not renew at its original end date. Fans must then actively renew.
International Monthly Subscribers: Subscriptions will be cancelled. Fans must actively renew.
International Annual Subscribers: Subscriptions will be cancelled. Fans must actively renew. Refunds issued on a pro-rata basis to those with time remaining on their PlayerHD account.
We hope you all like the new website and the smoother experience it provides!
