Sure the groups aren't even drawn at that stage. You could be paying 70 euro and not get any game involving your county at all. id love to know where the cost is going because we are getting very little value.

Replying To combo:  "50% of Galways games have not been on. Both Sligo and Westmeath games were close enjoyable games not available to anyone anywhere.

In Galway we can watch every club game. I understand that might seem never neverland to you but to most people its easy to show games.

The poster even used the loitv who show every game every week and are much poorer then the GAA and has much less support."
A lot of games haven't been on it. Do you expect GAAGO to broadcast every intercounty senior championship game? Can you watch every club game with the quality of commentator, analysts, camerawork, sound quality and digital broadcast quality that GAAGO gives? I could stream a game on my phone from the sideline but the quality will be poor. LOITV is a fixed camera in the stand, not great analysis, for most games and fair play they have an audience for it. I got it during COVID and if they were streaming cricket from a phone I'd probably have watched that at the time. If you don't like GAAGO don't buy it. But at least no-one will be knocking on your door asking why you didn't buy it and threatening you with legal action.

Yes I do expect them to do every game and if they dont want to let others show the games. The Connacht semi final was not shown anywhere. Let Connacht GAA stream it they do a great job during the FBD.

GAAGO is not high quality and has a large amount of time given to advertisements. Why are they wasting money on Youtube videos that get a couple hundred views. Copy LOITV coverage for the games they believe has less interest in or let TG4, clubber or County and provincial streams show the games instead.

TG4 and Clubber don't have rights to show live championship games.


Why do you think you have a right to be able to see every championship game anyway?

What give RTE the right to stop others from showing the games? The games would be shown if the were allowed

Maybe it would be better if even less football matches were scheduled to be live on tv… It's only highlighting how woeful Gaelic football actually is…!

Looked at a good few underage games on clubber costing €11.99 each. The channell is poor quality with one camera swinging from end to end. I bought a game there recently and the Commentator didn't turn up. Silence for the whole ĝame. On an other occasion the camera man had to give commentary for the first half !!!
No clubber would not in my opinion be a good idea for championship games.
Gaago are .much critised but they are a quality product. Good camera work, good comentators and good panel discussions. Clubber on the other hand are like something from the dark ages and very much overly expensive and not fit for purpose.
