Celtic set for brilliant run of TV coverage as 7 of our next 8 games will be screened live

Celtic fans have had plenty of frustration when it comes to live TV broadcasts over the last couple of months.

Crucial away matches to the likes of Livingston, Motherwell, and Hibernian were snubbed for live coverage. Sky Sports didn’t show any of them with our last league game screened on TV being the 2-1 win at Aberdeen a month ago.

However, thankfully, things are about to change over the course of the next 8 games. The Hoops won’t be without simple ways to watch the game so long as they have subscriptions for various broadcasters [Live Football On TV].

UK and Ireland based Celtic supporters will be able to watch Thursday night’s game in Hungary live on BT Sport. That will then be followed by Sky’s coverage of Dundee vs Celtic.

The international break will then ensue before the Bhoys are back on live tv once again. St Johnstone in the Premier Sports Cup semi-final will be shown on Premier Sports, before Bayer Leverkusen away will be back on BT Sport.

The only one of our next 8 games that won’t be live on UK and Ireland TV stations is Aberdeen at Celtic Park on November 28th. However, 4 days later we’ll be back in action against Hearts at Parkhead in a rare Sky Sports broadcast from our home stadium.

Celtic set for prolonged period of TV coverage

Tannadice will be next on Sunday December 5th on Sky, before we round off the schedule with Real Betis at home on BT. It’s a fine list of coverage that Celtic fans can deservedly sink their teeth into.

Too many massive Celtic matches have been snubbed in recent weeks. Sky have refused to show some major contests for whatever reason. This has proven to be a slap in the face for Hoops fans who had already subscribed to the broadcaster.

Celtic fans who have wanted to watch these games have had to fork out extra cash. Money has been paid to Livingston, Motherwell, and Hibernian in order to access their PPV streams. Even then, it comes with biased commentary in favour of the opposition.

It’s been a poor show this season, and Celtic fans will thankfully be rewarded with a run of games that will be more easily accessible for TV owners.

Ange Postecoglou’s side will be looking to provide some serious momentum in the coming weeks. So hopefully supporters are in for a treat.

At the very least, it’ll be good to have access to some major games over the next month.
