Most people I know now have a firestick for IPTV which has a "Scottish Football zone" so again just so simple to stream illegally and who can blame them when Sky and virgin are looking for £150+ per month for TV content, most of which is utter dross in the first place !!

That’s the thing for me - i couldn’t go to the Queens Park game as I didn’t finish work until 7 and didn’t fancy travelling up from Ayr on a Friday night anyway.  But if they’d offered a reliable and legal stream for a tenner with decent commentary and graphics (Morton and Arbroath proved last season that it’s possible), I would have bought it no issue. But instead….

Given they aren't doing it to encourage folk to attend, if we ever do get ppv back it'll be (adult) entry price.

We're at the point of completely binning our TV package and going with a broadband only deal. Genuinely can't tell you the last thing we watched on Live TV or even recorded on our Virgin box. An SPFL streaming service would be absolutely up my street, already have NFL gamepass. Something similar even on a scaled down size would be excellent. NFL is 24/7 but, even 2 or 3 programmes during the week and a couple of roundup/highlight shows as well as getting access to games would be superb. 

At least in the UK, the freeview/OTA stuff is pretty decent and has a good selection

I "cut the cable" in 2019 and have only had broadband package since then...can't say I've been unhappy other than the fact there's only 5 channels available on the aerial and its basically equivalent to BBC1, ITV, C4, UKTV Gold and some foreign language channel :lol:

I have the NHL Live app that I split with 2 mates so works out to $60/season and only games that are blocked are Calgary games broadcast on Sportsnet (but I don't care since I'm not a Calgary fan, and when the Bruins are in Calgary I go to the game) and the TSNGO app for other sports (tennis, la liga, CFL and some NFL/MLB on there)

The thing with a Scottish Football streaming service is that it would need to provide good value, and I can't see people paying the equivalent of a season ticket for it either

Yes, there's now too many different companies all taking "exclusive" content, so in effect you would need about 6 different subscriptions to watch what you actually like.

Sky only has the Golf and English football now which is of interest to myself and I detest all their American Sports, Womens football, Cricket and F1 but as I love Spanish and Italian football plus European games it means I then need a BT Sport and Premier Sports subscription in addition to sky. Over and above this you have a similar situation with TV content with Netflix and Amazon, Paramount+ etc, etc and when all added up becomes crazy money.

As things become much tougher for people, I'd imagine the TV subscriptions will be the first thing to go and the use of illegal streaming will be going right through the roof.

Hell mend them though as their greed will undoubtedly come back to bite them.

Isn't free but Nord VPN is seemingly most reliable - I have the option to buy the subscription but at £200 I am wary in case it doesn't work 😂

I got NordVPN for about 4 years for cheaper than that. It is very good.

Apologies the £200 was the price of the subscription for Ayr United home matches, I worded it poorly however.

 

My Nord was £50 for the year I think.

The only free unlimited one I’m aware of is opera which is basically a free internet browser which comes with its own VPN

Might have a look at that then if that’s the case.

Test it out on a free stream before you fork out for the Ayr one. I suspect it'll be patchy at best tbh.

IPTV plus the odd Netflix/Prime have kept me going for years. I'll probably never pay for Sky again as i just don't need 95% of their content.

Patchy is being quite generous.

It only works for the most basic of basic geo-locking stuff - Netflix et al can see right through it

Well the best bet is the club streaming service and VPN, but this is not the cheap way

IPTV I haven't tried, but I imagine there's a subscription fee to pay and you're not guaranteed to get Ayr games? Or you get the shite Pixellot stream?

Hesgoal is a mess of malware and shite, I've tried it once and I'd rather not watch the game than go thru that nonsense and is it not pixellot too?

The iptv that I have got is decent it seems to have most things that I need. It didn’t have the league cup games but has had every league game so far

IPTV you're looking at a Firestick or equivalent and then £40-70 a year depending on what service you use. If you watch a couple of PPV events then it pays for itself and everything else is a bonus. The Ayr games are without commentary but the camera work is definitely better than the early Pixelot days.

So they would be outside the ban anyway? 

You miss my point. Without the ban some big fixtures could be televised at 3pm on a Saturday.

This just isn’t true anymore, given how super easy it is to illegally stream games.  If you want to watch a 3pm game live, you can either watch it on streaming website like hesgoal or viprow or go down the road of a VPN.  

This all reminds me of the music industry trying to stop Napster.  In the end they accepted the genie was out of the bottle and offered legitimate streaming like Spotify.  But as with everything else, Scottish football will hide in the dark ages.  All they are doing is denying themselves potential revenue from people like myself who are never going to do an 8 hour round trip to Inverness or folk who are elderly/infirm who would love to watch their team in the house.

The rule isn't so much about clubs at our level streaming matches, it's there to prevent TV companies broadcasting games at 3pm. It existed long before streaming was a thing. It may change in the future, who knows? 

Spotify probably isn't the best example as artists receive a miniscule amount per stream. A song has to to streamed an awful lot for a reasonable amount to be made.
