GAA Fans Furious Over Issues They Had Using GAAGO To Watch Kerry-Tyrone

GAA Fans Furious Over Issues They Had Using GAAGO To Watch Kerry-Tyrone

This afternoon's clash between Kerry and Tyrone is arguably the biggest game in the GAA calendar so far this season, although the match had a bit of an odd feel to it in the buildup.

While the action on the pitch was always going to deliver, it is likely that quite a few supporters will not get to see it due to the game not being on terrestrial television. This game, along with Saturday's other semi-final between Armagh and Monaghan, will be shown exclusively on GAAGO.

The streaming service has been a topic of controversy this year, with many feeling that it is unfair to put so many big games behind a paywall. Earlier in the week, Joe Brolly had this to say about the joint venture between RTÉ and the GAA:

These games are often for the community, that's what the GAA is supposed to be...

This is about elderly people all around Donegal, Sligo, Mayo. My own father in-law for example, doesn't know how to work GAAGO and hasn't got adequate streaming, he is in a wheelchair because he had a stroke. His great delight is the games and he's not going to be able to see one of the biggest games of the year this weekend.

It's not good enough, everyone knows it's not good enough.


The decision to put today's game behind a paywall was controversial, but it seems that many of those who did fork out to watch the match were unhappy with the quality of the product on offer.


GAA fans unhappy over quality of GAAGO stream

GAAGO has had some issues this season. While the punditry panel is strong, the quality of the production as a whole has underwhelmed many.

On this occasion, quite a few people had issues even getting their stream to work properly.

Not good enough, especially when you pay €12 to watch a single game. In fact, the cheapest tickets for today's games at Croke Park (€30) were only €6 more expensive than the cost of buying both streams.

It is certainly something that the GAA need to look at moving forward.
