    Hull City (and a dozen or so other clubs) have opted out of the Football League's broadcast agreement and will thus not stream live matches as they felt not enough fans would care. They've also ditched BBC Radio as their broadcaster after nearly 20 seasons but have yet to set up their new radio streaming subscription service with 4 days left until the season starts. The joys of relegation (and having exceptionally shitty ownership).

    Do the teams have to pay to have the matches streamed? This seems odd.

    I don't think the Football League Interactive agreement is public, so the best guess at this point is that they are pulling more revenue by exiting the agreement and selling their own radio rights and app.
    The clubs have also stated that they were concerned with the "quality of the product" since it might be just a one or two camera setup with no commentary, but as ever I assume it's the money.

    "EFL rules state a minimum fee of £5 per match be charged for overseas fans to watch live. The Club is also required to give 30% of all streaming revenue to the EFL which further reduces financial viability.

    We have also taken into account the likely low take up of international supporters and concerns about connection reliability at some Championship grounds. It is also worth adding that all live SKY games are embargoed from live streaming."

    Based on what they've said so far, yes only online, but presumably the promotion playoffs will get on TV. They also got the League Cup, so that should make TV too in the later rounds.

    Haha I'm a Leeds fan and I can only laugh.

    And also ponder the symbolism of a crest featuring a person covering the crest.

    You should be thankful that the person in the crest is covering the crest. Otherwise it would be a neverending crest on the person as the crest would feature a person with the crest, which would have a person with the crest, which would have a person with the crest, etc., etc., etc.
