Should charge £18 for the Hearts game at Cappielow with a special offer of the Queen of the South game a fortnight later for a tenner if you buy the Hearts game. Excellent way for Morton fans to

They aren't technical gurus give them a break. 

I can just imagine everyone checking their phone at the same time to read the announcement "someone's having a jobby, so avoid the toilets".

Would love to know what's went on that it changed to £14 then back to £16.

Someone will have had the idea to change it but some people have probably already paid £16.

 

Peter Weatherson is the greatest player since Ritchie, and should be assigned 'chairman for life'

It's a sorry day for the club when fans will be more willing to put money into other clubs to watch away matches than into their own because of its rip off pricing system.. there are a lot of supporters going through hardship just now through their work not being stable, the club should realise that..

Should be easy enough to find out who, and issue a credit on the next game though.

Sounds like a bit of work for someone.

I think 14 quid for the quality of the streaming product is very fair. In fact, I'd still be happy paying a bit more, given that this is probably by far the biggest cash stream coming into the club at the moment

I suspect that an expat appreciates the novelty a lot more than someone who is within walking distance of the ground though. Paying £16 or £14 makes no difference in my book: it's abysmal value for a terrible product (streamed football in general, not GMFC's production specifically). Would a band get away with charging £15 for an exclusive video stream rather than a ticket for a gig at the Barrowlands at the moment? I don't see how live football is any different as a product in the cold light of day.

Putting a wee bit more funding into our future ownership model and just watching Jeff and the boys on Saturday afternoons instead makes much more sense to me but others have a different point of view. I expect the novelty to largely wear off though and that price gouging isn't going to do GMFC any favours on that front.

The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

 

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

Whether or not t4 quid is value for money isn't really the issue for me, to be honest. It's the main revenue stream for the club at the moment so I'm happy to pay it, even if the quality of the football isn't scintillating.

If that's the sole purpose of the exercise then I'd rather give a similar sum to MCT and oblige the club to deal with its prospective owners instead to get access to that cash. Unlike most clubs in Scotland there is actually an alternative revenue stream set up here and giving that group additional leverage is a better way of sustaining the long term interests of the club IMO.

It's possible to do both

But it's clearly better to put 100% of the resources in the 'leverage over GC' stream rather than the current regime's begging bowl.

Nah, I'm going to keep paying for the streaming. Apart from the 1st half against Queens Park which was admittedly dreadful, I've quite enjoyed it. Even though the footballing quality isn't great, it's still been reasonably entertaining, enhanced also by Gerry and Andy's commentaries.

Which is fair enough but it means that your motive for subscribing right now isn't just to give the club its main revenue stream: there's an expectation placed on the product that you're clearly happy with right now.

For those who object to the pricing though or can't be arsed streaming some dirge game against Dunfermline or somebody in February then it's worth stressing that this isn't actually the only - or even the best - way of supporting the club going forward.

I also received an email from PayPal issuing me a £2 refund after buying it at £16

What a club.

Don't think you can. It's only Inverness home matches that are available to be watched live on there.

Lucky us.

You should have a view at IC v Ayr match thread on P&B, seems Pixy system is poor quality.

Loved bit about AI cameras following the near side bald linesman head and not the ball and no sign of a refund.

Look we need to get this into perspective, its Morton, the team we follow and support, not fecking Sky TV who have taken plenty from Scottish football supporters and fed the English PL. PS if you hold out with Sky you can get a 9 month deal to view all sports HD channels for £23 and share this with 3 mates, as you get 3 access passes.

Don't expect Hearts to offer PPV as to match season ticket prices they would need to charge an average of £38 per game.

Just bought my ticket for Ayr game.

As I had a season ticket I thought it would have been automatically added to my account. Not the case need to buy game using your access code, so don't  make the same assumption as me gat you ticket now.

See they have changed it a bit and added a fill box for home and away supporters. Hope this is not a feature of the pricing algorithm that fluctuated between £14 and £16 but just a genuine collection of attendances to monitor interests over the season.

Dundee have the same choices home or away.

Maybe something to do with a split of the proceeds
