Hmmm...

I'm interested to know the funding structure of this...  Do what are essentially pay per view revenues get paid to the clubs in proportion to the matches which are streamed, or is there an equal split between all clubs regardless of subscriptions?

With so many exiles I can see us having a strong take-up midweek with less risk to attendances than some other clubs.

Undecided whether this is a good thing or not overall for the game, could see fewer away fans making the trip...

Not for a couple of years yet.

Let's hope we are still in the EFL

I really struggle with Tuesday fixtures getting from work to blundell park is nearly impossible. I'm going tonight - but thats the only Tuesday game ill make before Christmas - if they charged £16 to watch online i would pay it and that means if it was in operation this season the club would make £64 quid out of me before Christmas and probably the same after Christmas so circa £125 quid the club doesn't get from me at the moment. I bet there's loads of people like me who would do this. I reckon it's only a good thing.

Would I pay £20 to watch at home with a beer or put up with the excrement at Mansfield and Stevenage this year (stewards and policing I'm talking) .... I wonder

As I mentioned Saturday - away games are becoming less fun but doesn't mean I wouldn't happily pay £20 to watch online or tv.

I'd be an away season ticket holder, compare to the 8 I plan to go to

It doesn't include Saturday games. It is only games that are played outside of the core time which is 14:45 to 17:15 on Saturdays.

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


Speaking to a Sky cameraman earlier this season, Sky seem to be cutting back on the number they use as they are trying to cut costs so unlikely that they would have something like an outside broadcast team at every L1/ L2 match.

SH really does have no interest in fans attending football matches as long as there's a quick buck to be made. Midweek game under the lights used to be the best atmosphere at BP. This might not drastically reduce the number of away fans but it's a step in that direction.
