Celtic fans wanting to watch today’s match from Livingston will have to fork out £20 to buy a live stream of the action.
Until last season when Sky Sports signed an exclusive five year deal with the SPFL almost every Celtic SPFL away match was shown live. If Sky didn’t pick it BT Sport would pounce on the match.
Today Sky will show Dundee United v Dundee live, it does have a local appeal on Tayside but the reality is that it involves two teams in the bottom half of the SPFL.
Celtic quickly sold out their 7,000 allocation of tickets for Livingston today but that demand hasn’t been reflected by Sky’s decision to put on the match from Tannadice.
In two weeks time Sky will show the away match against Aberdeen- a fixture that is almost always picked by the broadcasters but the games away to Motherwell (October 16) and Hibs (October 27) won’t be on Sky Sports meaning that Celtic fans will have to pay for live streams from the home clubs.
