Heart of Midlothian continues its commitment to ensure that no fan misses out on any Tynecastle action by broadcasting every home match live on Hearts TV.
With Hearts TV coverage going from strength to strength, the club’s significant investment in matchday coverage – unrivalled in the Championship – will see another four-camera setup in operation this Saturday.
Season ticket holders, PPV customers and international subscribers can all watch Robbie Neilson’s side take on Dunfermline Athletic as the Jambos bid to further extend their lead at the top of the Championship.
A vital revenue stream during these challenging times, the club thanks its fans for their support and hopes they continue to enjoy watching Hearts TV on matchdays from the safety of their own homes.
It is, therefore, with regret that the club has today taken steps to prohibit an individual from illegally streaming first-team matches online.
Firstly, it goes without saying that the club will not tolerate the illegal streaming of any Hearts match as this is theft of our intellectual property.
Secondly, the practice of illegal streaming and actively encouraging hundreds of people to partake in its viewing on social media is hugely damaging to the club’s income, at a time when it is heavily reliant on maximising all revenue streams in order to survive during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Finally, and most important of all, any individual illegally streaming Hearts games is doing so to the detriment of the thousands of loyal Jambos who support the club as best they can through season ticket purchases, PPV purchases and Hearts TV subscriptions.
A zero tolerance approach will be taken to any person, Hearts fan or not, who illegally streams Hearts matches, and anyone doing so who is on our database can expect wide range of sanctions; from season ticket/match ticket bans to possible legal action.
Once again, the club thanks its fans for their unwavering support and hopes that this isolated incident is not repeated.
