Will this game be free on RTV for subscribers like Oxford was? Can’t manage so was hoping to watch the first half

Probably mate but I think they like to announce it as late as possible so as not to affect ticket sales too much

Game is on for unlimited subscribers or £12 pay per view.

Clear strategy in place now to get more subscribers. If you’d subscribed at £5 per month last Saturday you’d have got the Oxford game and this game (with probably Blackburn and Derby to come) for £5. If you’d bought these two games individually it would have been £22 - with the other two still to come. Ouch!

Get subscribing Bears, you know it makes sense.

EDIT: see later posts. Odd. It’s only on the overseas package (£17.25) you get this game.

You sure you get them on the £5pm subscription? I thought that only got you replays and interviews. May be different as its friendlies I don't know

So is Rangers TV unlimited different from the 5 quid a month subscription?
Yes mate. I'm on unlimited and get all games live as well as all the other content. I think the fiver subscription just gets interviews etc then match replays after midnight. I think it's about £25 a month or something can't remember

Makes sense to be honest. I have the £5 a month subscription and the friendlies were all free last year I think.
It didn’t stop me going as I’m just not keen on friendlies but it probably does impact the ticket sales if if becomes a regular thing.

Just noticed that.

What an odd way to go. We all know they turn a blind eye to folk using a VPN but here we have them clearly stating the game is available in UK and Ireland - but only to RangersTV Unlimited subscribers. That’s a package for overseas Bears. They will get away with it for this game but not once the competitive actupion starts - they can’t be seen to be encouraging using a VPN I’d suggest.

I don't think they are encouraging that with this mate and it won't be the case when the season starts proper. There will be no broadcast deal in place for friendlies so rangers can sell the match themselves

I got the fiver a month package last Saturday to see the Oxford game.

Looks like my choice is to either stump up a further £12 or wait until midnight

That’s actually what I was trying to say mate. Fine for today but they won’t be advertising competitive games available in the UK with the Unlimited package. This just seems a strange move from them. Usually if the game is available in the UK it’s available to all subscribers - not just the top package.

I’ll wait. Booked a holiday this month so £12 to see the first half only is sadly not happening.

Ah I'm with you now mate. Yeah you're right pricing four friendlies at £48 is highlighting the benefits of the premium package. I guess it's the only way they can really promote it here in the UK.

I don't know how many people subscribe to RTV but I imagine it's a good earner for the club. It's also nice to be able to put some money into the club every month even though attending games is difficult due to my location.

All games mate home and away. I think last year they didn't show Europa league games as bt wouldn't let them but everything else is covered.

I am in the UK but use a Vpn to travel to Holland every Saturday :cool:

If you can't attend games mate it's 100% the next best thing.
I’ve gave up my season ticket this year so I really need to learn how to d

Same boat as me mate. Only make it to Ibrox a handful of times a season, if I’m lucky. RangersTV Unlimited package is a Godsend.

2 things have happened here. On the plus side I’ll probably drag my backside through to Glasgow and pay the additional £3 to watch it live.

On the downside, I’ll probably reconsider my subscription to RTV, as I barely use it and most content I do watch is free on YouTube or the highlights on BBC or SPFL channels anyway. Feels a bit galling to be charged the same amount to watch as any random who’s not been subscribing for years, especially at that price.

They're taking the absolute p*ss charging £12 to watch a friendly when you already subscribe monthly.
To be fair, I think the price highlights how good value the £5 monthly package is, none of the friendlies will be on normal tv so if you can avoid the score, you'll end up paying £5 to see at least Oxford live and the other 3 games at midnight

The only reason I subscribe to the fiver one is it generally gets you friendlies.
The content has been really good recently right enough but I don't watch it enough generally. I think I'll be cancelling it
