I think this is very poor of Argyle announcing this so late after selling match tickets. This should have been announced when tickets went on sale, giving fans the option whether to go to Home Park or watch Argyle TV. I think a lot of people who have bought tickets, will not be very happy.

You miss my point, some of those who have bought tickets, possibly would have saved a tenner, if they knew it was going to be free on Argyle TV.

PAFC always stated that the three pre season matches were going to be shown free, and will expect a few glitches to appear before they start transmitting live EFL & cup league games.
Those that want to watch the game live can visit Home Park again. I don't expect the stream will upset the figures too much, and it allows those that cannot attend, for one reason or another, to watch the match at home, which could be many miles away from Plymouth.
Well done PAFC.
(P.S. I do see your point, but that was always what was going to happen).

If too many switch to watching online rather than attending the game, there will be no chance that 3 o'clock games will be streamed in the UK.

Surely the stream is a poor second choice and only to be taken if the better option is not available?

I must have missed the announcement that pre-season games would be streamed for free.
It makes sense to trial Argyle TV during the pre-season games but the very late announcement for the Swansea game might be to do with low ticket sales due to fans wary of returning to Home Park just yet.

I think given the pre season games free on Argyle TV is a good way to get fans that otherwise might not have used the service to sign up and will hopefully generate more interest and money from streaming sales when the real season begins. Well done Argyle 👍👍

Totally different experience tho' isn't it? If I could go I would happily pay £10 to watch Argyle 'live'. I wouldn't resent someone else (esp those who can't or won't attend yet) watching it for free at home. If I had already bought a ticket I would consider it a good deal regardless of other available services. Those going tonight want to go and are happy to pay to watch 'live' football imho.

Same difference as watching a concert/gig/festival via a live stream and being at the event. I can only see streaming of matches as a positive. Those who are interested enough and able to go, will go regardless. Those who are unable or not may stump up a tenner to watch. I didn't bother last season due to reports of variable quality. This season I may well give it ago. With many Argyle supporters unable to go due to personal circumstance, be it location, finance, work,family, health, covid concerns etc. If well presented it offers the club a chance to gain extra revenue and retain the floating support. We just need some decent performances on the pitch to keep everyone happy.

To me it would be unfair to accuse Argyle of luring people into buying a match ticket, by making them think the match was not being streamed live. Especially with everything the club has done to be fair and reasonable over the last sixteen months.

I think from looking at some of the attendances of pre season friendlies that the rush to return to football isn’t happening.
Could be quite a few worried Club owners around.

The rush of returning will be more likely for the league games.

For now, with the bullish announcement of some fans that they won’t be wearing a mask at any point on social media platform, why would you risk your health if you have some form of issues that could deteriorate with Covid-19.

I think now we got to that stage with this virus. Unfortunately, we can’t stay indoors forever. Yet now what we are kind of seeing is the part of society we created that has one attitude. Stuff everyone else. I’m doing what l want.

I think that’s why we will see the need for vaccine passports soon, even at Argyle. So that at least people who are responsible will know the irresponsible ones haven‘t got Covid-19.

Not sure of everyone's opinion on it but I for one welcome the vaccine passport, you have to have a way where people can feel as safe as possible. We don't want another wave of this pandemic in the UK, butwe alos need to ensure that hospitality and events including football can return to some form of normality otherwise they'll soon be many out of business (if they aren't already).
