A number of Scottish Premiership sides have moved to make their subscription services free for season ticket holders, amid the football shutdown.

Given fans cannot go out to watch games right now due to the Covid-19 outbreak, clubs have been trying to give back to fans who are really missing their football.

On Monday, Aberdeen, Hibs and Hearts all made their respective TV channels free for supporters to digest content.

Within RedTV, Hibs TV and Hearts TV – all partnered by Stream Digital – are many interviews, full-length matches and highlights in order for fans to relieve any boredom they may be feeling.

Aberdeen’s commercial director Rob Wicks said of his club’s decision: “We know the role the Club plays in our supporters’ lives and understand they may be feeling a void at the moment as we navigate our way through this unusual period.

These three sides follow the example of St Mirren, who made their Buddievision free for supporters just a few days after the game was suspended by the SPFL.

Given this situation is likely to go on for some months, it is a nice gesture from the clubs to be thinking about how they can make things better for their supporters.

People are undoubtedly going to be stuck for things to do at points in the near future and so to open up the archives at no cost is a great move.
