Sorry to say Celtic fans, the massive game between Hibernian and Celtic midweek will NOT be televised by SPFL rights owner’s Sky Sports.
In what’s an all too common occurrence now, if Celtic fans want to watch the game through legitimate means, they will have to shell out a PPV fee to the away club.
When BT was involved in our game alongside Sky Sports, we enjoyed our games being on the TV more often than not. This new deal with Sky Sports is costing Celtic fans a fortune. The SPFL selling to the highest bidder rather than the broadcaster who can showcase our game properly is coming back to bite us.
Sky Sports continually put on substandard broadcasts, and now they can’t be bothered even putting on top games.
To recap, if you want to legitimately catch all of Celtic’s games in a season here’s all the things you need to pay for:
- Season ticket
- Sky Sports Sub
- BT Sub
- Premier Sports Sub
- Random PPV fees [The highest so Far – Livingston at £20]
It’s an expensive hobby being a Celtic fan.
The Hibernian game will set you back £15 on Wednesday night with a lineup of Dougie Donnelly and John Hughes.
Tam McManus will be on commentary.
