All EFL clubs will be able to stream midweek league games via their websites if Sky are not broadcasting it live. Woo hoo!

Can't help but think this will hit several clubs in the pocket with decreasing midweek attendances. Especially clubs at L1/L2 level that don't have the support of some of the massive clubs in the Championship.

Great for exiles and folk who can't always get to games though. It is better to get some decent money in for the streaming service rather than the current system where lots of folk are using illegal streams and VPNs to get access on the cheap.

BBC saying all EFL clubs.

Every Grimsby game should be available online and tv.

Protectionism never works. It will grow the market.

At the end of the day, nothing beats reality of being at ground.

I was going to Accrington tonight from Essex, but can't go now due to work - but would be happy paying entrance fee to watch live .

If I'm lucky I will log into ifollow to listen to match - to be greeted with scunthorpe game if they are playing for the first ten minutes. Frankly it's crap and in the dark ages.

Supermarkets sell online - it's doesn't mean people stop going shopping.

Grow the market, grow Grimsbys revenues, build a bigger lots fan base.

Is this a good thing? I don't think so. I get the "progression" argument but let's face it how many Exeter fans are going to make the journey to BP on a Tuesday night if they can stream it live at home? It won't hamper the Championship but no doubt clubs like ours will lose out.

Harvey is a fool and needs to go.

Is it going to be one camera angle and no commentary? Nobody in their right minds would ever choose that over being there.

Exactly. If you can get there you go, if you can't then this is the next best thing.
