Following the end of the season, we share some of the key statistics from this season's Live From The Hive streaming service.
Firstly we'd like to give thanks to 247.TV for their help and support since coming in since November to sort some of the previous issues we'd had in the early part of the season. As well as Brightcove who we teamed up with to be our streaming platform. We believe with their support we were able to provide a streaming service in which we could all be proud of.
We'd also like to of course give big thanks to all of our supporters who showed patience throughout the year when we had some technical issues. We hope you have enjoyed the streaming service since the change of company, along with our highly popular Live From The Hive Pre-Match Show.
See below for some key statistics:
Highest Virtual Attendance: 3666
Average virtual attendance: 1300
Average virtual attendance with fans allowed (four home matches): 906
Media and Communications Officer, Adam Rowe, said:
"Streaming matches has represented a huge challenge for Clubs up and down The National League, I think almost every Club has had its difficult moments this season! After moving to 247.TV as our chosen streaming production company and Brightcove as our live streaming platform, I feel we produced a service that the supporters can be proud of, 247 ensured that we produced a really professional streaming production which was so important with fans not being able to attend the matches. The positive feedback we have received from both home and away supporters has been magnificent, it is something everyone at the Club can be proud of. I want to thank all of the supporters for the patience they have shown throughout the season and also for the very kind messages we have received.
"Many supporters won't be aware that the streaming of matches allowed for students at our partner university, UCFB, to gain vital industry experience this season, we had students working with us as camera operators throughout the campaign and we are very thankful for their hard work. However much it has been enjoyable producing the streams, it is no substitute to having the Bee Army in the stadium and I hope we can have them with us from the getgo next season!"
