When they announced the new streaming set-up a couple of weeks ago, I emailed the club asking if matches would be streamed live.

Fortunately, I didn't hold my breath waiting for an answer.

The season ticket announcement implies games will be streamed live and available to all season ticket holders.

There was no mention of PPV being available or, if it is, what it would cost.

Personally I hope all clubs make PPV available as it was good to be able to view away games last season, but I don’t know how that sits with broadcasting rules, and the pricing would need to be high to avoid reducing actual attendances. It would be counter productive if home fans decided to view the stream rather than attend.

It's ambiguous - I personally would say that it only hints at live streaming. 

That's why I asked them to confirm, and said that if so, I'd probably buy a season ticket despite being over 500 miles away.   No response.

It would surely require a change to broadcasting rules, and I'd have thought that such a revolutionary change would have been announced by now by the SPFL/SFA.  And there is no mention of streaming in the announcement about tickets for the first League Cup games.

I shall continue to not hold my breath.

“The new channel will also be available for every game of the season to all season ticket holders”.

Seems clear to me.

But you are right to double check given you are over 500 miles away. Hopefully you get a response soon.

Streaming info for the home cup games:

For snorbens_caleyman, it also refers to information being available before the first home league game about how season ticket holders can access the streaming of the league games.

Good to hear I can still watch the Peterhead game during my isolation!

Thanks, Robert.  And yet it still manages to omit one little word - "live". 

Will be phoning them during the week.

If 'streaming ' is the term used it should be live, or as close to live as it can be with equipment and bandwith limitations.

If it's not live it's a download. Totally different product.

Sorry, but I do not agree.  If you are watching something on Youtube or listening to Spotify, you are streaming, although the content is not of course live.  Watching highlights on ICTV, watching a service such as BBC iPlayer, or watching Netflix is also streaming. Apart from a small temporary buffer, the content is not stored on your device, and you do not end up with a copy of the content on your device.

The term "livestreaming" is often used when the event is live, such as PPV matches.

Download is when you create and store a complete copy of the content on your own device, which you can then subsequently watch/listen to without access to the original site.

Will still be phoning, and will report back here.

But we're talking about steaming a game of football which is live in this case so your comparisons are irrelevant. I'm with Satan on this (not a phrase you're likely to hear often!!! )

:frustrated01:   They could record it and stream it afterwards!  :lol:

However, I have checked elsewhere, and they do indeed appear to be livestreaming league games - see https://scottishfootball.online/showfixtures#  and look at August onwards.

Using the same portal service as Dunfermline and QoS did last season, which I think worked pretty well.

I want to congratulate all concerned with the excellent streaming service provided tonight.  What a difference when it is a real camera person filming and action replays as well.  Ian Auld provided a solid and professional commentary

I agree it was far superior than last season which was crap!  Ian Auld was good the picture quality was good and it was good to hear Ross Tokely as well :smile:

Personally I thought the quality of the picture was the only let down. Looked pixalleted and got particularly bad during the transitions.

I was in a high covid risk area last weekend , durham,  so won't come out to play for ten days so streaming is my only option. Can't wait for Saturdays game to see fyffe in defence and a  fully fit doran.

Can you not get a test? Recommendation now is for self testing every few days.
