The curtain is set to rise on AVTV Live this weekend with the first video match stream for international fans. It will be a learning process for both supporters and the club. Anytime a new product is launched there are bugs — the audio feed against Hull was poor enough that the club offered a refund for those who paid for it. Here’s hoping Cardiff City will not be a similar event.

**This post will be updated as more information becomes available — if you have questions/comments/feedback please comment.**

AVTV Live is the streaming option for Aston Villa supporters. For non-UK/Ireland fans this means live match streaming. UK/Ireland fans only have access to live audio.

Check TV first: Anything booked on television will not be shown on the service. Nor will Cup matches.

Mobile Device: You must use the AVFC App. Mobile browsers will not work because of EFL restrictions.
