OurLeague app & streaming (Merged Threads)


Recommended Posts

Just a quick question about the streaming on our league.

I've seen it mentioned that it's only available to season ticket holders. Can someone please clarify for me what that actually means. Does it just mean that it's free for season ticket holders and everyone else has to pay their £5? Or is it completely inaccessible if you don't have a season ticket for a club?

I would like to buy the Hull v Warrington game next week if I can.

It’s just for season ticket holders. Probably due to Sky holding the rights

I think they would have continued coverage if the games continued in neutral venues due to the cost

I have a season ticket for Salford Red Devil’s, and I have had to pay the £4.95, 

Is that for the cup game?

What Spidey says makes sense. If its a game that Sky are showing then I'd be surprised if they allowed our league to put it on general sale. But for none televised games it seems daft for them to not allow people to pay when it's already being broadcast for season ticket holders anyway. The sport isn't really in a position to be turning down anyone's money.

I don’t think Cup games are included if you’ve paid for today

The issue is that Sky don't want OurLeague turning into a de-facto competitor to its own coverage - especially when it pays for exclusivity. 

If you are charging £50 a month (or whatever it is), for a Thursday and Friday night RL fix, you're going to resist someone coming along and offering a similar fix for £5 a week.

Yup, it's not rocket science. 

I still believe if Sky want to pay a lot less next time we should refuse exclusivity, as the Our League stuff is proving really decent.

If you're a ST holder with your club, you can request a code, you enter that code into the box and it allows you to watch all the games involving that club.

By the way, there are some full matches available free on OurLeague, after they went out live.

There aren't any individual passes available to purchase for Super League games. Access is just for the season ticket holders of the two clubs involved. Not sure whether this will change once limited numbers of fans are allowed back in games.

It's all a bit of a confused mess at the moment.

Some structure would be welcome.

Pressing on post-Covid, I would imagine that the biggest obstacle would be that Our League can only deal with one match at any one time.  Hence the staggered Championship kick-off times.

Nevertheless, there could be some commercial opportunity for clubs below $uperleague level.  I thought the presentation on Our League was pretty good quality.

Am I right is stating that ST holders will only be able to view their clubs home games via Ourleague and not the away games or does this cover all games?

All of your club's league games, both home and away

For SL. For Championship it’s only the home games. 

Apologies, you're right. Four months in Super League and it looks like I've already forgotten about the serfs 😃

  • John Drake changed the title to OurLeague app & streaming (Merged Threads)

There are a lot of individual threads cropping up relating to the OurLeague app and the streaming of games that are covering the same ground over and over.

It's probably best that we aim to keep them all together in one place, if possible.

We have match threads to discuss the actual games, so keep this one specifically for issues relating to the app or streaming via OurLeague.

Thanks.
