    Paul Barber on why Saturday's "free" Liefering stream wasn't free for US residents


    5 Not allowed!
    On Saturday morning, sad Albion nerd that I am, I set my alarm for 4:45am in the hope that Albion might provide a stream of the first pre-season runout against FC Liefering (they hadn't made any communication in advance of the fixture). I was therefore pretty happy when I saw this tweet, telling me the match was being streamed "live and free":-

    Which is why you are my favourite poster on NSC. Accurate and up to date Albion facts, unadorned, and succinctly put. Use that as your next strapline

    I love AZ's posts. So many ITK dicks on here, but he just posts FACT.

      Whilst it much have been frustrating for you AZ it is pretty mental there is a market to watch the Albion play a friendly against a 2nd division Austrian side at silly oclock in the morning!

      I’d agree if I hadn’t found myself betting on Albanian second division football before.

      I wonder what the viewing figures were for the game in North America.

      Maybe with the ability to sell TV rights to North America we may be tempted to undertake a pre-season tour there next year, to further boost our profile and potential revenue income

      seems a funny way to carry on a business, how are your market supposed to buy the pay for service if you dont know in advance its available?
      Daily Mail readers are living in a perpetual hell, expecting their homes to be overrun at any minute by hoodie wearing, skunk smoking, muslim, transgender, asylum seekers.

      Once a team, or teams, have sold the rights to the game, it’s up to the purchaser of the product to market it.

      - Barber’s a weasel - easy to tell he has worked over here in the land of never wrong

      - VPN is only solution, especially if you can get some tech guys to set you one up back home so you don’t get so easily picked up as using a VPN service (BBC annoyingly tech-savvy in this regard)

      - AZ’s ferocious attention to detail, encyclopaedic knowledge of everything BHA and selfless service to the NSC community warrant a free set up behind the scenes by the local SturmbahngruppenBozza
      football is just a mechanism for scooping up small amounts of money from a huge number of people in order to put huge amounts of money in the pockets of a small number of people

      I've posted this as I thought my fellow North American-based fans deserved to have an explanation for why Saturday's match was (and, in all likelihood, numerous pre-season friendlies in future will be) advertised by the club as having a stream "live and free!", only to ultimately discover that the stream costs $30 (even though the club will not have the decency to explicitly declare that on social media or their website).
      Thank goodness. For a moment I thought you just wanted a moan.
