CELTIC are keeping Wednesday’s game as in-house as possible to maximise ticket sales and more importantly Celtic TV subscriptions which they’ve been endlessly pushing the benefits of since Gerry McCulloch took over.
Celtsarehere understand that Celtic has knocked back a Norweigan TV channel request to stream the game live back in Norway for the Rosenborg fans and the wider public for fear of illegal links being used off of that.
With it being entirely in-house Celtic can control this problem to some extent and in the process generate more subs.
Celtic TV has already had its problems this season and the quality on offer for the price point at the moment is not justifiable to the average joe. They may very well get some more sign-ups outside the UK, so some aren’t left with a blackout. However, is this the right approach? Pricing Celtic fans out of watching their team.
At £25-£30 for an adult ticket and £80 for a years premium membership, there is no cheap way to watch the game legally on Wednesday. Is this the right way to go about things?
