Live Streaming – Pay-Per-View Access Update
We welcome today’s confirmation from the SPFL, and the agreement from Sky, that home clubs will be able to show matches to supporters within the UK & Ireland on a pay-per-view basis whilst restrictions on attending matches are in place.
Our first home fixture against Rangers will be unavailable for PPV on the basis that it has been selected for live coverage by Sky. Likewise our away match at St Johnstone will not be available. Consequently, the first match we will have the option to stream on a PPV basis will be our home match with Hamilton Accies on Wednesday 12th August.
Having already undertaken our own research with supporters we plan to review how the PPV streaming rolls out during the opening weekend of the season before making an announcement with further details on availability and pricing in plenty of time ahead of our match with Hamilton Accies.
After reaching the latest milestone of 8,000 sales, the priority remains to drive as many season ticket sales as possible ahead of Wednesday night’s deadline. Supporters who sign-up before the deadline on Wednesday will guarantee virtual season ticket access for the home opener and will also have the opportunity to spread the cost of their season ticket over 6 months at 0% interest.
Season ticket holders who have already signed-up can look forward to receiving their log-in details by Thursday at the latest ahead of Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off with Rangers.
