Arsenal fans' TV channel, presenters & everything you need to know The age of the outraged fan hit its peak with the rise of YouTube channels dedicated to giving a voice to those who go to the games While the traditional forum of the pub after a match still exists for many fans of the game, online platforms such as Twitter and YouTube are becoming increasingly popular as well, meaning those debates are now being broadcast to a wider audience. There are plenty of video clips showing angry supporters delivering lengthy tirades against managers or players which have gone viral, making minor celebrities out of ordinary fans. As you'd expect, fans of the biggest clubs are to the fore in this regard and the AFTV channel, which broadcasts the views of Arsenal fans, is one of the most well known outlets, albeit entirely unofficial. Goal brings you everything you need to know about the Arsenal fan channel, including how to watch, who presents it and more. AFTV is a YouTube channel dedicated to the coverage of all things Arsenal, particularly the club's supporters.
The channel was launched in 2012 and, per the official website, its creation was driven by a desire to "create a platform for ordinary Arsenal fans who had no voice at the club." Spawned in the final years of the Arsene Wenger era, AFTV captured the frustration of Gunners fans as their team struggled to win trophies and failed to qualify for the. Interviews with disgruntled fans (many of which developing into full-blown, expletive-laden rants) have proven popular among viewers, but the channel also features interviews with players. Individuals such as Thierry Henry, Nwankwo Kanu and Unai Emery have spoken to AFTV, while former captain Gary Neville has also been a guest. It was created by Robbie Lyle, who remains one of the channel's chief presenters, and, at the time of writing, had over 840,000 subscribers. Despite its undoubted popularity, AFTV is not without its detractors, with Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin expressing his irritation with the channel.
Anita Jones occasionally appears as a reporter, while Pippa hosts a show called 'Wat U Sayin?' in which she engages with the supporters' comments. A number of fans have achieved a degree of notoriety through AFTV and have even gone on to launch their own individual channels. Among those to do so are 'DT', who regularly features on the 'All Guns Blazing' podcast, while Claude and Ty front a segment in which they discuss club issues. Lyle, meanwhile, now also presents Channel 4's 'The Real Football Fan Show'.

Unai Emery's side went ahead through Alex Iwobi but a red card for Sokratis Papastathopoulos saw the north London side concede three goals. This has seen some fans call for the Spaniard to be sacked. And footage has emerged from AFTV of one fan who believes their European journey is over. In the clip, host Robbie Lyle asks the supporter – known as Troopz – if there's any hope in the second leg. Arsenal are out of the Europa League, one fan says, because of one player being absent (Pic: GETTY/ AFTV) Robbie argues that being a man down cost the Gunners. But the supporter is convinced being back to 11 men next week will not help because one player will be missing "Sokratis is gone," Troppz adds. No-one was supporting him. Sokratis Papastathopoulos was sent off against Rennes – and fans believed that damaged the team (Pic: GETTY) Paid plans start at $10 per month or $99 per per year for 1TB of cloud storage… but if your needs are more modest, you can get by with a free account that includes 2GB of storage for no charge.

When you're setting up a new streaming device on your TV, there are few things worse than having to type in your Wi-Fi password using a remote control. Well, if you're thinking of buying the Amazon Fire TV you may not need to do that, thanks to two new updates that add simple Wi-Fi set-up to the streaming box, similar to that offered in Amazon's newer Echo speakers like the Echo Plus. Now, if you save your Wi-Fi password to your Amazon account, the Fire TV will automatically connect as soon as it detects the network, taking the laborious process of typing in your Wi-Fi password out of the set-up equation. You'll need to own at least one device that supports simple set-up already, like the Amazon Smart Plug or Amazon Echo Show. This is because you need to have previously logged into your Wi-Fi connection with a compatible Amazon device for the feature to work. According to AFTV News, you'll also need to purchase your new Fire TV device from Amazon, as those devices come "pre-registered to the buyer's Amazon account, which then allows it to pull down the customer's stored Wi-Fi password during its initial setup". Supported Fire TV devices include the Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Cube, and the Fire TV Stick 4K – so, if you're thinking of purchasing one and you already have a compatible Echo device at home, you could be in for a pain-free set-up.
