Yes - the indications of the demand for CC1 streams has been given a huge lift when it is all there is.

They can ignore it when they are playing in front of crowds but Ben's info about the hundred's of thousands of views is now reality for a lot of counties and they seem to be starting to take a serious look at it.

The kit they usually use has always been geared to giving lip service to the odd non local supporter if the bits of kit are hanging about and a non paid techie can cobble something together. That tended to be the way Somerset used to do the supporter ball by ball commentary.

The tech now is much more capable and the demand is a little more than they expected it to be so it all looks better for this aspect - and as a soon to be non UK resident again I am really happy to see that.

If the counties could raise revenue from it and all had to charge I'd be happy to subscribe to a service like SCCC's - not so sure I'd want something like this.
