thirdwell : (23 October 2017 - 03:48 AM)

I have spent the last hour reading some of the Rangers fans comments on the game. Each one of them said that the ref was a disgrace, that at least 3 Motherwell players should have been sent off and dozens of them claim to have heard the disgusting incident regarding Bowman breaking the nose!  In all my (almost) 50 years a 'Well fan I feel truly ashamed that the one and only great club in Scottish football is being victimised by the authorities (Rangers fans words not mine). I therefore urge that Motherwell, in fact all teams, that play Glasgow Rangers FC in future: do not tackle, do not jump for the ball, do not shot towards the Rangers goalmouth. If one of the opposition feels that a Ranger's player is a little tired or fatigued he should immediately notify the nearest official to have the game stopped so that said player may have a wee seat and a cuppa tea/coffee and a biscuit or two. This relaxation period is only relevant to players of RFC. If any other STEELMEN can think of any way that can improve Ranger chances of winning please feel free to add to the above list.

This is something I've wondered for a while.

 

In the past it was only Celtic and Rangers who had their own TV channel, but now we're seeing the likes of Hibs and even Thistle with a subscription channel on their websites? They offer live access to their games for overseas fans, and delayed coverage for UK based fans (entire 90 minutes are made available from midday the next day).

 

Anyone know why we can't be doing something like this?

"Tried" is a bit generous.

Unless that includes the talk about trying it rather than actually broadcasting anything to test.

I would like this, from the highlights I can only ever see who's good. I need to see the full games to know who's shite. Unless they're Zack Jules.

We already record the whole games and provide commentary, so my guess is the hosting platform would be the stumbling block.

Couldn't we just copy Thistle? I assume they're not paying a fortune or using anything that would be outwith our reach?

Sounds like a job for our marketing department to rustle up a partnership with a hosting company.

The content the club put out isn't too bad. They do a highlights package and loads of other interviews and stuff including the MixLR commentary.

Live streaming for exiles would be nice I'm sure, but it's a pretty small market.

While it's not all about making money, there would be a cost involved that wouldn't come back.

I'll admit I've not paid that much attention but I'm not sure how popular Thistle's platform actually is. I'm pretty sure quite a few of their fans have pointed to our #content as a model that they'd prefer rather than the subscription service.

 

Live games and delayed coverage aside I don't think the Jagzone content is really any different to what Motherwell are doing with their YouTube channel. The only difference is that Thistle fans are being asked to pay for it.

It's just frustrating that when they're already filming and commentating on almost every game, they can't go the final few yards so we can see the pictures alongside the live comms... or even just the pictures. 

 

The bandwidth cost of the actual streaming is probably pretty small... in the absence of any other overheads, I'd guess they'd be more than covered if every viewer was asked to pay a couple of quid to watch every week. Or it could just be considered a Well Society perk for overseas members, since the other ones aren't usually much use to us. (Though here in Ireland, I'd lose out both ways as they're not allowed to live stream Scottish fitba' here either...)

 

The whole rights/geolocation issue is the main problem I presume -- as far as I know, none of the 'simple' solutions (YouTube, Facebook, Periscope, uStream and whatnot) have either a way to stream to paid subscribers only, or to block viewers by IP or location. So presumably the club would need to pay for some bespoke solution, and that's what'd put the price up for viewers.

Contacted the club about this quite a few times....
As was said above, other clubs broadcast live oversees and we already have the tv cameras and commentary so should be a logical step!

I guess the easy way to do it would be to price it and just pass that fully on to the interested exiles. If enough people want it then it happens. If not then it disnae.

Somebody send a message to cm wellfan the forums resident taxi driving marketing and internet expert, should be no bother for him to set up.

It's the live games and delayed coverage that's the main attraction though, isn't it? Especially for overseas fans. They don't even need to put too much into it, the new EFL iFollow package is basically one camera angle filming the whole game with no commentary or replays.

What sort of camera is used to record the games for the MFC TV? I know ye can broadcast on a phone these days but would the camera have the ability to go live?

Possibly not directly, but if not they could likely hook it up to a laptop and use something like OBS Studio (free) or something better (not free) to stream via their service of choice.

The biggest technical challenge, I suspect, would be applying the appropriate geographic restrictions. But I imagine services like Youtube Live Stream manage that.

As I said before, Thistle can manage to do this, so is it really outwith our capabilities? It would likely be a decent little earner, especially from fans overseas. Think most clubs charge UK-based fans £4.99 or something for all the miscellaneous content plus delayed coverage of the full 90 minutes, and overseas fans a tenner or something for the same coverage except the games are streamed live.

 

An overseas address and bank account are required for the live streaming service.

Yep. We're a lot better served than many other premiership clubs.

True but to keep the overseas fans who pay into the Well society feeling valued I think this could be a worthwhile cost especially if the are willing to pay a bit extra to part fund it.

That's what I was thinking, right now I pay nothing to the club weekly, as do most overseas fans, so this would hopefully bring us some money. However I don't know 1) how many overseas fans we have, and 2) how much it costs to do.
