Q: What games will I be able to watch through my virtual season ticket?
Your virtual season ticket will provide access to the Live Broadcast of Scottish Premiership matches included within your Season Ticket for which your Season Ticket is not valid for access to the stadium as a result of such match(es) being played ‘behind closed doors’ or with a reduced capacity as a consequence of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Q: How will I access the Live Broadcast on a matchday?
Ahead of the season starting you will receive a username and password via email from the club depending on the contact information we have for you. At this time we will also provide you with a weblink to access the Live Broadcast. Please take a moment to visit afc.co.uk/eTickets to make sure your contact details are up to date.
Q: Will my login details stay the same for every match?
Yes. Your details will remain the same throughout the season and cannot be changed, so make sure you keep them safe and private.

Disable any ad-blocking software and you may need to configure your anti-virus software.

No. Please ensure that you are not using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) or proxies as this can cause the Live Broadcast stream not to function.
Q: Will this work outside the UK & Ireland?
No. Due to the contractual restrictions placed on the Club by the relevant rights holders, your virtual season ticket will be geo-blocked and only accessible within the UK & Ireland. If you live outside of the UK & Ireland the best way to watch the games is to subscribe to RedTV International.
Q: When does the RedTV Broadcast start on a matchday?
The broadcast will become available 60 minutes before kick-off and our new matchday show, will start 30 minutes before kick-off, so for comfort and ease we strongly recommend you login and connect to the Live Broadcast as early as possible during this period.
Q: If I miss kick-off, can I login at any point after the game has started?

No. Due to broadcasting restrictions there will be no replay of the matches after the final whistle. This content will only be accessible for RedTV subscribers.

Your Virtual Season Ticket does not include access to RedTV itself- only the live stream of our Scottish Premiership matches played behind closed doors.
