I read from the Stirling Albion website that our game on Saturday will be their last one to be streamed live.
Having used it last season it certainly seemed they spent quite a bit on it as it was excellent. Now that fans are allowed in their customer base has plummeted. Add to that the SFA requiring them to block customers in England on Saturday afternoons it’s no longer viable.
I expect live streaming will be completely banned for whole of UK and perhaps other European countries from next season. The costs of ours are covered by Mark Millar for now and I expect they’re much lower than Stirling as they had actual camera operators.
As someone pointed out to me this may be a factor in Edinburgh City moving all of their games to Friday nights.
Nah Edinburgh messed up their booking with the fact they are ground sharing, that is why their playing budget has taken a big hit this year too, they didn't budget for having to pay Spartans for the pleasure of playing there this season
It is still an option to record the game and make it available at a later time, I think most clubs will and should do this
