I've tried finding out information on this for months, and am coming up empty. Can someone enlighten me on why all of a sudden the Beeb is blocking all the SPL feeds outside the UK? Several years ago, you could listen to any match that BBC Scotland was broadcasting. Then, the Old Firm teams started to get proprietary about their matches and started charging subscription fees for them (is anything free on the 'Net anymore?). Fine with me, the teams I'm interested in are Hibs and Caley Thistle. Then, starting last season, more teams started having their matches blocked. It got to where an international listener only had one or two choices of which match to follow online. Now, this season, there are weeks when none of the matches are available, and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it. It's hit or miss whether I can listen to anything on a given Saturday. And, of course, all the cup matches and internationals are now blocked also when they didn't use to be, and all midweek games are also blocked. There is no place I can find with information on what this is all about, and which will tell me when the SPL matches with my teams will be available for me to hear, or not. What the frag is going on????? Anyone in the know???? BTW, I don't get how football rights are handled anyway, I mean, what's the point of blocking a webcast? It's not like I'm going to fly to Scotland and attend the match in person each week. All this policy serves to do is drive away fans, when it seems to me what they should want is for their sport to be accessible to as many people as possible. Blocking webcasts is nothing but counterproductive. Who comes up with this stuff? I guess I might understand if they wanted to make a buck/quid or two and charge a subscription fee, but they're not even providing that option, they just block the feed. Makes no sense.
