 Hibs blocking Killie fans
Topic Originator: buffy  
Date:   Mon 27 Jul 19:04

On their opening game this Saturday, after 5 months out, Hibs in their wisdom have decided not to allow away fans nor Hibs non-season ticket holders to watch their live stream (and other games in the new season).

Bizarre that they would turn down the chance of extra income from PPV from both sets of fans....

Lorna , might be due to capacity issues on their servers? Can ours accommodate 3000 fans trying to log onto Pars TV? Maybe Brian could outline the technical challenges!

I know there’s new camera systems being installed at all SPFL clubs for the live stream service so I’d have expected this to have been able to handle bigger audiences for that reason alone.

Perhaps Hibs are trialling this for one game - so would understand their reasoning- but surely not allowing your own fans to view it isn’t right.

Wouldn’t make sense for the SPFL to invest in a new streaming and camera system based on a small viewing capacity imo.

I hope other clubs don’t follow suit.

Aberdeen I am sure have a maximum of 9000 for Live games. Away fans couldn’t buy anyway I am sure, was it not restricted to season ticket holders only, apart from Hamilton who didn’t sell ST and says will be available to PPv for anyone.

Will it not be for licencing purposes and the rules about 3pm games on a Saturday? We will be the same as the live stream has been sold as a condition of buying a season ticket. It says it guarantees you entrance or a live stream of the game.

Thought that would be the case. If there was no entrance for fans all season, offering PPV would be like allowing others to pay a season ticket in instalments.

Scott McClymont, Killie Media Manager says (on Twitter)
“ It is up to each home club whether they offer a PPV option and I note Hibs' announcement on this. “

☹️

Brings it home, Dunfermline would have to be quite expensive to protect the season ticket price. I will be renewing the season ticket but I will be gutted if there are still no fans allowed in the ground when our season kicks off.

We are told our Content Delivery Network can handle the traffic.

Will need to try it prior to live game 🤔

There will be challenges 😁
