It’s been called the most competitive league in world football.
The Championship is set to be as dramatic at the top and bottom as ever this season, with fixtures coming thick and fast.
How can I watch all midweek Championship games this season?
One of the big lures of the division is the amount of games, with a gruelling 46 to fit in over the course of the season.
With international breaks taking chunks out of the calendar, there are plenty of midweek games to look forward to.
And now you can watch ALL of these games on either Sky Sports or through the iFollow streaming service.
If you are a Sky subscriber, head to the live game being shown on Sky Sports Football on any given Tuesday or Wednesday.
From there you can press the red button and choose to watch any of that evening’s action from across the Championship.
The iFollow service allows you to watch games through your browser and is also available for some League One and Two games too.
Head to your club’s website whenever there is a midweek fixture, where you will be given the option to watch the game for a one-off payment of £10.
Which clubs are not available through iFollow?
There are some teams who have opted out of the scheme.
This doesn’t mean that they can’t broadcast a stream through their own web players and it’s worth checking ahead of kick.
Game which are eligible must be outside the blocked hours of 14.45pm-17.15pm on Saturday afternoons and not broadcast live on Sky Sports.
The teams not to sign up to iFollow are Accrington Stanley, Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Bristol City, Charlton Athletic, Derby County, Hull City, Forest Green Rovers, Middlesbrough, Queens Park Rangers, Stoke City, Swansea City and Sunderland.

Eleven Sports reportedly bid less than the £18m per year Sky paid for their Spanish rights, while BT were outbid for Italian football, which they have shown since 2012.
Amazon are also on the scene, buying a 20-game package to show Premier League matches over the Christmas period, starting in 2019.
Sky will still show 126 Premier League games this year and 128 per season in the recently-agreed 2019-2022 deal.
BT have the rights to 42 games in 2018/19 and 52 annually in the three years following.
