Why is it not on the red button, what is the excuse this time? The whole "is it isn't it" situation is a farce, along with not really knowing until the last minute.

Been known for a while it's on the skysports website. Monday isn't on either.

I expect SL wants to maximise sales so gave it a thumbs down.

Its on BCTV+ for those abroad so I expect there will be a fairly reliable stream out there somewhere or on IPTV 

Eh? What’s BCTV+ ? Is that any different to BCTV ?

BCTV+ is the one that streams ALL games for a monthly or annual subscription (bar any that are televised domestically or internationally) for those who live abroad. ie it is not available for UK & ROI fans 

BCTV usually shows the hilights/interviews etc

The board of directors will want to maximize sales on behalf of the club. It is their responsibility to act in the best interests of the company. There be your down turned opposable digits

Why on earth would any city supporter be interested if tomorrow’s game was on the red button? 

Get down the gate and cheer the lads on to 3 points. These type of game are what we’ve been waiting for!

Maybe something to do with the fact that not everyone being able to make it to AG for various reasons, like living outside of Bristol for a start.

You do know that not all postcodes start with BS?  You may have been put off by the ‘there be dragons’ on the map but people do actually live there.

On my holidays but will be back for the Derby game!

Perhaps some of us are visiting family in Oz and were hoping to watch on Sky Go via VPN.

Hopefully Hesgoal will deliver.

I have raised this issue previously. Of course many fans who live a fair distance away are very limited, due to cost and personal or work commitments, as to the number of games they can get to.

Bs, City, SL or whoever makes the decision should start living in the 21st century.

I should dearly like evidence as to how much match income would be lost if the match, or any match, is on the red button

Come on City/BS/ SL get in touch with the real world of 2019 and the modern supporter.  Some of us feel the club just only cares about money and not about the club's lifeblood, i.e. the fans.

After all we and our families will still be fans long after BS and SL are but names in a history book

Ahh sound, thanks. That’s the one I use, for a minute there I  thought I was missing out on something! 

Frenchay Red, if you’re in oz for a while I’d recommend subscribing to this. 12 quid a month, not a contract btw and you can listen to 20man phone in after the game.

More likely most are armchair supporters who’d  rather park their fat backsides in front of the telly.

Don't see the problem, if you go to the game you buy a ticket, if you can not get to games you can subscribe to BCTV, this is a professional football club, so either way you pay.

Dear me. So you are actually denying any reasonable requirement for the red button, that some supporters don’t live in Bristol, in fact might live all over the world, and might not legitimately be able to make the game?

If we were indeed professional then BCTV would actually work 100% of the time

Through the deal with Sky, BS get enough money to allow use of red button.  Other very professional clubs manage it

I'm stuck at home watching SSN. As goals have gone in we've gone live to The Den and the Kassam Stadium, but not even a mention of the goals at AG, just a change to the text on the yellow ribbon at the foot of the screen.

 

Edit; as the game enters it's 88th minute, they now show us Josh's equaliser.

Perhaps with more income BCTV could be improved, or we could buy a super duper striker, or ensure we comply with FFP regulations. Or indeed upgrade  Easter Eggs.

Bristol City FC are a professional football club, not a charity.

No, my point was armchair supporters. There’s loads of them. Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal supporters who have never set foot in a football stadium. Why would they want to cheer their local team on when they can watch it on the red button.

Yet not professional enough as yet. Professional and charity are not opposites.  I know many charities far more professional than BS

And please it isn't City I am talking about but Bristol Sport.
