That is a very good idea if you ask me, hopefully more people will go straight to the ground to drink beer rather than the pub and take in all the info.

Now although there more chance of Ronaldo signing for us or Chelsea showing off their newest aquisition and stating " hes the greatest right back of his generation ... i give you our new sensation Peter Atherton"

But thats a great idea SB...

It would be really good if they could stream it for Bantams World and us expats.
Yup would be nice...

Listening to the Pulse via the web doesn't quite have the same effect! ;)

How viable is that technology wise, and how good a connection would you need to get a reasonable picture? Just at the minute the odd streaming video bit I've seen isn't worth watching for something like football.

It would be worth signing up to Bantams World just to get the away matches.

I'm sure we'll be at that point at some time in the not too distant future, but I'll bet the cost would be more in line with Sky pay per view than the current Bantams World cost.

I believe that in the near future, maybe in five-six years it will be possible to see football by Internet.
For me, leaving in St-Petersburg, it could be great to see Bantams week in and week out, but Idon't believe that it's possible right now.

I think it is possible to broadcast games via the internet, but there are many other factors in this ever happening. TV rights being the biggest stumbling block, after sky pay millions of pounds per year they reply on subscription to their channels and if people could watch the games via the internet then they would lose large amounts of money therefore I believe they have numerous terms written into their contract to prevent this. The technology is there but it's not in the TV companies interest to use it.

Nothing to prevent sky being the ones you pay to get it via the internet. They could still own the rights and profit from them, just the means of delivery that would be different.
