Would be a great innovation for away games in the present climate. Would always prefer to attend in person for home games but who knows if that will happen.

Ideal for us exiles. I could put up with two hours in a facemask for the game, but 9 hours plus in a mask on the train to get there means it will be some time before I'm thinking of coming up to Darlo again. :roll:

Great news, but games need some fans at the ground to lift the atmosphere so hope HMG don't ban us attending games albeit with limited attendances, ticket only, controls on social distancing, face masks etc. All the clubs need to generate income and the extra from streaming would help cover reductions in hospitality, cover increased costs of controls and less fans attending. Some fans are shielding or want to avoid risk of Covid so streaming does allow them to continue to support from a distance in safety.

I assume that cascades through all divisions? The big blocker was the ban on any streaming of 3PM football.

If the NL have got permission then assume that extends to all - unless this is an elite football only exception perhaps.
