Tyrone GAA pledge to improve streaming service

THE Tyrone GAA has pledged that they are doing everything possible to ensure that the streaming service for domestic championship matches in the county works effectively for all viewers.

Although most of the comments in relation to the service have been positive, a number of concerns were expressed on social media about breaks in the streaming during a number of senior games last weekend.

Some viewers on the service lost coverage, including at a critical point in the game between Carrickmore and Killyclogher just as Mark Bradley was about to score a crucial penalty goal for the St Mary’s.

However, Tyrone PRO, Eugene McConnell, said he understood that a number of viewers might have had problems, but that it was the GAA’s aim that these are ironed out as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We are trying to do our very best for the viewers who are unable to attend these games and ensure that everyone who tunes in gets the best possible service,” he said.

Since the streaming of games began in 2018, the service has proven to be extremely popular with followers living in Tyrone and right across the world.

Although our viewing figures for the first weekend of games have not yet been finalised, the indications are that the numbers tuning in have once again been very high.”

It is understood that Tyrone GAA may be investigating the possibility of deploying a new external server to help improve the service being offered to viewers at the cost of £5 per match.
