Worth noting as well, Hearts (and the other Scottish clubs) receive a directive from the SFA which instructs them not to show any live games during the scheduling of Champions League or Europa League matches. So the governing body issue the guidelines to be followed to each member club. 

 

 

And we can't expect the governing bodies to give a whooha for the fans, can we?

Hi TJ, as mentioned before English clubs take the financial penalties as it's affordable for them with the money they get from the TV deal. We don't have the same luxury north of the border unfortunately.

TJ,  see Laurie's post earlier today.

 

"There is a fine for screening live games during the Champions League, which the English clubs can afford due to the size of their TV deal. Unfortunately Scottish clubs cannot, which is why Hearts TV, Rangers TV and Red TV are all providing audio only coverage tonight. 

 

There are solidarity payments given from UEFA for now showing games when the UCL is on live, which I believe are then reduced or removed if a country breaks that agreement.

 

I don't know the exact figures but basically the Scottish clubs can't afford to take the financial hit from UEFA when it comes to the Champions League restrictions, whereas the English clubs can. Very frustrating, I know."

 

So, in effect, it really has nothing to do with TV viewing figures........just revenue from wherever UEFA can get it?  :yadayada:

Thanks for the clarification Laurie. Shows the rule up for what it is if richer clubs can just pay a fine and avoid any meaningful punishment. A game between two decent size English clubs will have more of a impact on taking viewing figures away from a UCL game than Hearts v Partick. If they are going to have rules like that the sanction should be more dissuasive (bigger fines, co efficient points deduction, ban from UEFA competitions) , it’s like if jail didn’t exist richer people

 could do what they like and just pay the fine

Thanks for the answers guys. However it just makes it all the more infuriating. Surely any fine should be determined after taking the offending teams income into consideration. 

Were not going to change anything by banging our gums but i would ecpect the board to question this at the highest level. 

Anyway, once again, thanks for the clarification.

The Falkirk game is being streamed live tonight according to https://www.falkirkfc.tv/next-live-video/ :

 

I believe when this came up for the derby last year or the year prior it was explained that top flight clubs have restrictions, but not clubs in other divisions.

I'm pretty sure that it's only certain leagues. If it's not that popular a country, the lower leagues, possibly some top, will not be affected by the TV blackout.

Yip , not great customer service really .. it’s 8.30pm in Ontario now and I’m up at 5am for work, hoping it would be up before I had to hit the hay ... but doesn’t look likely

 

i was looking forward to watching it too .. shame really ... does it take over 2 hrs to upload a match to the website ... serious question as I have no idea personally how long it should take ...

Thanks Laurie.  It's up now.

 

And many thanks for giving us that excellent commentary with Jimmy despite what sounded like appalling weather conditions.  You really did sound as tense as the rest of us in the last 10 minutes.  Great stuff!  :lol:

The problem is one of communication.   Announced as, "Soon as poss after 10.15pm."

 

It would have been better if it was announced as after midnight,  1am, whatever.

I look forward to watching the post match reaction from Craig. I have noticed Hearts tv will only get an interview if we win or draw.

poor show! I am much more interested in what he says after a defeat.

As I live in USA, I rely on this subscription service for information. With no interview, I have to go by what the impartial media are reporting.

Pretty poor and cowardly not to have the balls to stand up and explain that performance.
