    Easily dude,
    I used 100-150k purely to encapsulate the Celtic and rangers fans. Not to belittle the others, but more as a base for the two largest supported teams and what could be surely deemed the minimal? Add in 20k from the sheep, 30k from the Edinburgh two, 10-15k from Dundee, another 20k from outwith and that's quickly more likely to be 220k, which is taking you over £50mill a year.

    We can then restructure how we show games, so lowleague and Highland league can perhaps get dedicated time slots which actually then helps promote their setup, championship can get set times compared to the prem etc as well.
    Imagine having all prem games at 3pm on a Saturday one week, with all championship games on the Sunday at 3pm, with league one and two playing around those times for exposure and Highland leagues playing perhaps before the prem games at midday on a Saturday or something?

    The options are there and the services are surely there as well, if everyone would just pull together we could be generating a 5 year deal worth £250million, not just £160million as sky have offered.
    £90million extra between 42 clubs!
    You could have the same financial split as we have currently, plus five every club £1million and still have £50million left over to use for running the service.


    I would actually advocate for the money to be split a bit differently, but even so, imagine giving a every team in the championship an extra million each year!
    Suddenly the idea of a 20 team top league where every club is massively more well off than before doesn't seem soo dumb.
    The league becomes more entertaining as clubs like Raith rovers suddenly can actually bring in a half decent team!
    We can then sell that to foreigner TV deals.


    Massive * tangent now,
    Sorry Blochairn!

    Not sure if there is CTV thread but this was the last one.

    The team they've put together is excellent for us, funny to see Michael Stewart nabbed, but honestly do think he's a very good pundit.

    But you do know that Rory Hamilton is the commentator which is surprising, always thought he had a bit to say about us negatively.

    I like the fact they have went for a couple of impartial pundits. Michael Stewart is one of the better pundits and will give a wee bit more balance to the analysis.

    Hamilton is okay and its better than the commentator on celtic TV "and the balls in the net". Brutal

    Sky own the rights to show games, why wouldn't they just setup supporters channels of their own and keep the money themselves

    Would Celtic TV work with any ipad, even the older ones? I presume it's just a case of updating the Operating system?

    Thinking of getting it for my old man, he's not been at his greatest in recent times but think he'd enjoy this.

    His old tablet is rubbish and temperamental and needs binned, but he is usually always watching YouTube Celtic things.

    Cheers, thought I'd seen something about the IOS, guess that'll be the problem as it's an older Ipad which ain't supported.

    Due to the ongoing issues with fans in sports grounds, I was thinking about getting the HD package (£80py) could someone please clarify what that means to a UK membership.

    Are all SPFL and cup games live, or are there delays in broadcast? I’ve looked online but there seems to be conflicting stories, would rather find out from a U.K. subscriber before making the purchase.

    Neither package gets SPFL games live, they are usually available from 10pm that night. The HD package is just that, HD streams.
