      Quote from Robby The Z
      The online reaction to the initial offer of non-broadcast Premier League games for 15 "pounds" per match seems to be almost unanimously negative. Mostly what I'm seeing is in regard to the price, but some seem opposed to showing so many matches in general, I guess because it would continuine the staggered start times for nearly every match over the course of a match weekend.

      So over here they show all the games that aren't being telecast on NBC Sports, on a new streaming service called Peacock. It shows those matches live and also holds them for on-demand viewing. There's other programming on it as well, sports and otherwise. The cost for the service is 5 U.S. dollars per month. I know this price will go up, but I'm wondering if a comparable rate, I think it's about 3 "Pounds" and 80 pence to equal 5 U.S. dollars, would be more acceptable to fans in UK, if not for an entire month of service, at least for an individual match of their preferred club?

      I understand about the price being too high, but is there some price point where fans would be willing to pay to view non-televised matches while stadiums remain off limits to supporters? I want the bans to end soon but each newscast I watch makes me think we're looking at 2021 at the earliest, and very likely not until 11=12 months from now depending on progress with a vaccine and case statistics.

      Are people going to stay away in total, or only if the price is too dear?

      You say you have LFCTV. So if you have, you can use it for our game, then watch the highlights later.

      I wouldn't pay 15p for the rest of the PPV games, let alone the going rate. Streams are  messy and unreliable, so I wouldn't go near them.

      I agree with JD.

      In Malta, I have a subscription for TSN 5.99 euros a month but the League Cup is not on it and I use acestream for pirated russian link which is reliable and if it is done properly, legal streaming will be fine (like Netflix). The issue will be the money you will pay for it.

      Yea anytime I've had to use a stream recently it's been as good as using my brother's SkyGo account on the tablet.

      I'd pay $5 for an individual game if the quality was on par. Otherwise I'd just stream it. I can hook the laptop up to my TV and watch it just like it's broadcast. $15 per game is a laugh.

      The matches on LFC TV aren't live over here (in the U.S.) They do have audio comms and i've noticed that steven hunter is better than the 5 Live guys about actually telling you what's happening on the park. The other guys just waffle on about seemingly anything else.

      I do watch the highlights and even full match replays later - but I try to watch a live match if I can. AS I mentioned, it's a lot cheaper here for a month of games than what they are asking for just one match in UK.

      OH, and agree about the streamss. for those and other reasons.

      I think £5/$5 is a sensible price for one game of football. £15 is ludicrous.

      Of course, people used to pay upwards of $50 to watch a Mike Tyson fight for 90 seconds :D

      Which streams do you use Si,  I've had one or two decent but most are slow and forever buffering,  I use a iPad 6 generation & my speed is pretty high, if I can find a stream as good as the one you use I can then ditch sky and save myself some dollar ?

      To be honest I haven't had to use one since before lockdown and can't remember what it was.

      I remember going to a guy's house to watch Tyson-Spinks and of our mates walked in about 75 seconds after the opening bell. He stood in the doorway for a few seconds, watched Spinks crumble to the mat, gave us a quick wave, turned 180 and headed straight out.  :)

      Realized later we should have chased him down to get his contribution to the fee.  :)

      That’ll give you the links to all streams for a game, there’s usually a ‘ladsstream’ link in there which I always have great success with with minimal pop ups.
