fulhamfctv Update

Friday 4 August 2017 16:30

The Club is delighted to announce that for the 2017/18 season fulhamfctv will deliver full matchday live coverage to its international supporters, providing overseas fans the opportunity to watch the Whites across many of our Sky Bet Championship fixtures.

Following the launch of the EFL’s iFollow service, the Club will deliver its own live matchday experience that includes Gentleman Jim’s exclusive audio commentary, alongside video coverage at home and away matches.

Due to broadcast restrictions, live video is unavailable to supporters in the United Kingdom and Ireland, however fans in these regions will still continue to be able to listen to the Club’s live audio commentary for all 46 Sky Bet Championship matches, as well as cup competitions where permitted.

In line with broadcast regulations, the Club’s live match streams will only be made available to international supporters at fixtures which have not been selected for televised broadcast. Additionally, all cup competitions are excluded from this service. The Club aims to provide supporters with live coverage of every fixture outside of those selected for broadcast*.

Subscription options for the new service include a monthly and annual package (available to all supporters), while international supporters can take advantage of an all-inclusive annual pass, or choose to stream fixtures on a match-by-match basis. Full details are listed below, and supporters are advised to ensure they purchase the package most suitable to their region.

At the time of publishing this information, the first available match that overseas fans can view will be our away fixture against Reading on Saturday 12th August (3pm BST). As previously stated, fixtures selected for live broadcast in the UK, and international picks, will not be available to view, with our season opener against Norwich City being one such example.

Fans can now purchase our monthly subscription ahead of Saturday’s meeting with Norwich, to ensure you stay up to date with all the action through Gentleman Jim’s live match commentary. All other subscription options will be available in the build-up to our second league fixture at the Madejski Stadium.

*As an example of how many fixtures this could include, during the regular 2016/17 season Fulham were shown live by Sky Sports or by an overseas broadcaster on a total of seven occasions, meaning that 39 matches would have been eligible to live stream.

Overseas fans

Fans outside of the UK and Ireland will be able to sign up for an annual subscription as of next week, priced at £120, in time for our away match at Reading. This entitles supporters to a live stream for all of our available league matches, as well as every piece of content and audio on fulhamfctv.

Whilst we will bring you as many games as possible over the course of the campaign, we are only able to show non-televised matches. Subscription to our annual international pass however will provide fans access to Gentleman Jim’s audio commentary for all games.

For those fans abroad who would prefer to select specific matches on a one-off basis, a pay-per-view option will also be available soon:

£5 per match with a fulhamfctv subscription  

£10 per match without a fulhamfctv subscription

Upon initial launch, the Club’s Matchday Live show will only be available on desktop websites. Access will be made via the Club’s mobile app in due course, however, fans will still have access to our live audio commentary service via the Club’s App during this time.

We advise subscribers that the live video streaming service is not available via mobile web browsers, i.e. iPhones, iPads and Android devices.

Please note that there are two requirements for watching the live streams; you must have an international bank account, and be located outside of the UK and Ireland during the game. EFL rules stipulate that both these conditions must be met in order for fans to gain access to the live stream.

With exclusive behind-the-scenes access, player features, live audio commentary from Gentleman Jim and Jamie Reid and much more throughout the season, fulhamfctv is the best way to stay close to the action at Fulham Football Club.

In 17/18 we will also be showing more live PL2 matches from Motspur Park and Craven Cottage featuring the Club’s Under-23s side.

Furthermore, there will be occasional features with Club legends as we catch up with some of the Fulham greats from seasons past.

Please note that from 31st August 2017, the monthly subscription cost for fulhamfctv will be £4.49, which is the minimum price the EFL allow us to offer this service. If you currently subscribe to this option, your next automatic payment after 31/08/17 will be at the new price.

Due to demand, we no longer offer a six-month package option, as fans will instead soon be able to enjoy an annual subscription, priced at just £45. Fans currently subscribed to the six-month option will have to purchase a new subscription when their current period comes to an end.
