    The derby is on BT.
  2. Nope, not accepting that today. Obviously any home loss is hard to take, especially by 2+ goals but if it happens over the entire 90 minutes you can just say that's football. But to completely collapse with only 5 minutes to go is a disgrace. The signs were there throughout the second half but we'd been holding on against what was frankly a poor team. To then just capitulate at the equaliser...no, that's not on. We went through some rubbish last season but I think that's the angriest I've left a game in a long time. And yes, that includes the last derby.
  3. Hate to say it but that was as bad if not worse than anything we saw last season.

    Morton (Morten) V Dundee.

    It’s taken us 50 minutes to reach Perth from Hawkhill.

    Glad I couldn’t make it now. Dare I say the league is the priority...?

    I would hope, indeed expect, this is what they’re doing anyway. It’s essentially how all live streaming works. The weakest point is the connection from the ground to the remote server which will be not much better than a domestic broadband connection. My guess is that for games covered by a broadcaster (either live or, in the Premiership, highlights) the pictures are picked up at the remote server after they’ve been sent from the ground (but don’t quote me on that). The annoying thing is that there is a robust fibre optic connection to (I think) the BT Tower right outside the ground, which is what the broadcasters use. But the costs involved would be way outside what the club could afford with the subscriber base. They would essentially have to contract out the production to a proper OB company, like Celtic and Rangers do. Which would bring the product back to the level of the games not shown live in the UK when in the Premiership - but like I said, almost certainly prohibitively expensive.

    The broadband connection only needs enough capacity to effectively stream to only one person. Yes you still need infrastructure that can accept the connections from users but that can be done at a remote location with robust infrastructure. It’s how people stream to thousands on YouTube with nothing more than a domestic broadband connection.

    I don't know where you're getting this from but it's wrong - there is no additional money paid for being on TV. The money paid by Sky, BT and the BBC is just part of the general prize pot.

    They get nothing from the BBC. The TV money goes into the general pot and is distributed as part of the prize money to all divisions - which means the Premiership actually get more of the Championship TV money than Championship TV clubs do. We can't complain, though, because the Championship gets money from the (mostly) Premiership TV contract.

    Those away games to Queen of the South and Ayr are a nightmare for 7.05 on a Friday night. Would be bad enough at 7.45.

    Sky don’t care about the Championship. Well, not anymore at least... so it’ll be BT or BBC. I’ll not bother dignifying with a response your crass comment about Gaelic being “foreign”.

    Worked out well for me . I'm on holiday 20th-27th so have gone from potentially missing three games to only missing one.
