it doesn’t sell you a cheap pie for £2 or water down your lager, but it does offer ‘near live’ content on Saturdays straight from the grounds via a symmetrical 1024Kbps satellite broadband internet connection from M3U.com.
Content includes interviews, commentary, fans’ views, comedy from Terry Alderton and other fan-related footage. The content is also archived on the site so it can be streamed for viewing at anytime.
