    Curious what platforms people watch Celtic on.

    I’ve had a Celtic TV subscription going on 15 years, but I’ve never been crazy about their broadcasts and think near $30 a month is a ridiculous price. If anyone else is showing the game, I’m watching the other broadcast.

    The only thing that makes it worth it is there’s no other reliable way that I’ve found of watching Celtic matches on demand (convenient for some early kickoffs, and essential for mid-week, mid-day local time European games).

    However, I’ve just stumbled across B/R Live streaming platform, which offers all UCL and Europa League matches live or on demand, and mentions it also shows SPL (and happens to be showing Celtic vs. Hamilton tomorrow). And it’s only $9.99/mo. I’m intrigued.

    Does anyone else use this service? How often do they have Celtic league matches?

    Is there any website or platform other than Celtic TV to reliably watch Celtic matches on demand?

    Thanks for any input.

    I'd imagine they'll have whatever games are televised over here

    I have a Celtic TV subscription, and yeah I wish it weren't so expensive. Aside from that though, all I can do is try to find an illegal stream somewhere. There are games often only broadcasted through Celtic TV, so if you want to see all of them, it's unfortunately the only option.

    I'm not sure how much some of those services you mentioned show Celtic, but I'd be curious to know if you decide to give it a go.

    I feel like I once watched an Old Firm through Fox Sports, which was pretty cool. That's about all I've seen outside of European ties on actual TV channels though.

    :giggle1: Naw Fox News is kind of its own independent demented mutant, Fox as a company produces a lot of stuff

    I’m thinking Cena’s shout that B/R Live will have all games that are televised in Scotland sounds right. Will try keep an eye on their schedule to get a feel.

    I suppose there’s no getting around how Celtic TV is sometimes the only show in town.

    There seems to be a fair amount of sites that make matches available on demand, but your only shot of them posting Celtic is a Rangers or European game (and even Europa games may just be highlights).
