Last week the club announced it was committed to live streaming every Championship match at Tynecastle for season 2020/21.
Our streaming partners, Stream Digital, have been working to prepare a new Hearts TV site that will allow season ticket holders regardless of their location (UK or overseas) to access matchday live streams.
As explained with no broadcasters in place for the majority of the campaign, the club is partnering with QTV and installing a multi-camera setup on matchdays, allowing different camera angles and replays to compliment live audio commentary, as well as slick new graphics and video packages.
As a thank you to fans for their unwavering support, our closed doors pre-season friendly match against Partick Thistle will be broadcast to season ticket holders for free. Although our new camera setup has yet to be installed, season ticket holders will be able to watch the the full 90 minutes live on Saturday with pictures from a single camera, which will include replays and live audio commentary. Come the start of the new campaign, the full Hearts TV experience will be up and running.
Further information on how to access the stream will be made available soon. The new Hearts TV website will allow simple access and we plan to hold a test event on Friday when we will be asking season ticket holders to login and check they can access the site and raise any issues through the channels we will share.
Saturday will be our first live event and a lot of work has gone in to ensuring this goes as smoothly as possible. This first test event will ensure that we iron out any glitches ahead of the start of the league season.
Once again, everyone at Hearts thanks our fans for their incredible support during these challenging times. We look forward to seeing you virtually, ahead of our big return home.
