Palace TV+ is a subscription service which gives supporters access to live broadcasts of selected pre-season friendlies and selected Academy matches, and live audio commentary of competitive first-team matches.

Below you can find answers to any questions you may have.

I have a Gold / Junior Gold / International Membership / Season Ticket+ or am a Palace TV+ subscriber, but I can't access to live broadcasts. What do I do?

Firstly, please ensure that you are logged in with the account associated to your Membership/Season Ticket+.

Secondly, the broadcast only becomes visible around 30-45 minutes before kick-off so if you are trying to access the page – it will take you to a payment page (we are fixing this!).

Thirdly, if you still cannot access the stream - the most likely issue is with your ticket/membership account being linked incorrectly.

To find out more information and try to fix it yourself please follow this link: https://www.cpfc.co.uk/how-to-use-palace-app-and-website/

If you need help, please email memberships@cpfc.co.uk during office hours.

What is Palace TV+?

Palace TV+ is a subscription service which gives supporters access to live broadcasts of selected pre-season friendlies and selected Academy matches, and live audio commentary of competitive first-team matches.

There are a range of packages available to suit you. During pre-season, we offered a Pre-Season bundle which includes access to all pre-season live broadcasts - or an Annual pass. You can now select a Monthly or Annual pass, and during the season we will offer Weekly passes.

You can also purchase a Gold Membership / Junior Gold Membership / International Membership and Season Ticket+ - all of which include a Palace TV+ subscription and access to the broadcasts.

If I buy Palace TV+, do I get to watch all CPFC’s Premier League matches?

No. We do not have those rights. However, you can listen to audio commentary of all the club’s Premier League matches through a Palace TV+ subscription.

Palace TV+ will show: selected pre-season friendlies and selected Academy matches, the manager’s pre-match weekly press conference, and live audio commentary of competitive first-team matches, 90 minute match replays of Premier League games, as well as documentaries such as When Eagles Dare.

What are the different passes available?

There are several different ways to become a Palace TV+ subscriber. You can buy an Annual, Monthly or Weekly Pass.

Annual pass (recurring) - £32.99

You will be charged on a recurring basis, however you can cancel at any time. With an Annual pass, you will be able to watch live broadcasts of selected pre-season and Academy matches, as well as listen to live audio commentary of first-team games for a year from when you purchase.

Alternatively, you can join as a Gold, Junior Eagle Gold or International Member and you will have Palace TV+ included in your Membership.

How much does it cost?

We are continuing to invest in our live match broadcasts to ensure we maintain the highest production standards for you, and as a result we are increasing the cost of our three packages by a small amount. The Annual subscription will increase from £29.99 to £32.99, the Monthly subscription will increase​ from £3.99 to £4.99 and the Weekly subscription from £2.99 to £3.49. All price changes came into effect on all renewals from 8th July, 2022.

Your subscription will automatically renew at the above price on your renewal date. If you wish to cancel, please do so at least 48 hours before your renewal date, via your phone’s App Store / Google Play (if you purchased your subscription via the CPFC app on iOS / Android respectively) or via the ‘Palace TV+ - Manage your Account’ box on the right side of your account page (if you purchased via the club’s website).

Will my Weekly, Monthly or Annual pass automatically renew?

Yes, Weekly, Monthly and Annual passes will all automatically renew at the end of your subscription period, and be charged to the payment method you used. You can cancel at any time either through your account or your app store.

The Pre-Season Pass is a one-off payment that does not auto-renew.

How do I buy a pass?

Firstly, you will need to create a Palace Account (free of charge) to be able to purchase a pass. You can do so here - or you can do so on the official Palace app.

You can then purchase Palace TV+ on the Palace website or on the Palace app.

On the app, navigate to Memberships by clicking on ‘more’ and then ‘Memberships’ - here you will be able to purchase either a Palace TV+ pass, or a Gold, Junior Eagle Gold or International Membership. Alternatively, if there is a live broadcast currently 'on', there is a 'record/live' icon in the top right hand corner of the home screen - click that to access the payment screen.

Alternatively, you can join as a Gold, Junior Eagle Gold or International Member, which all include Palace TV+ - you can view our packages here.

Does my Annual pass cover just the current season or a year from when I purchased?

An Annual pass will last for 12 months from when you purchase. It will auto-renew unless cancelled.

How do I cancel my subscription?

Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time.

If you purchased your pass through your app store (on Apple or Android devices), you must cancel on the relevant app store. CPFC cannot cancel your subscription for you in this scenario.

If you purchased through the cpfc.co.uk website, you can cancel from within your account page (click the Palace TV+ box on the right hand side of your profile page).

How can I claim a refund?

If you purchased your subscription via the website, please email palacetvsupport@streamamg.com detailing your specific issue in the first instance. Please note refunds will not be given for any issues reported after the match in question has been played.

If you purchase via the app, you must request a refund through the App Store / Play Store.

If you purchased via a CPFC Membership, please contact memberships@cpfc.co.uk

If I subscribed to Palace Audio or Palace Player, will my previous subscription automatically continue?

No, your previous subscription will be closed and you will need to start a new Palace TV+ subscription.

What happens if no games are played during the week or month of my subscription?

There will be weeks in the season where no fixtures are played - we would advise cancelling Weekly subscriptions for these weeks. Refunds will not be given for weeks when no matches are played.

Can I watch anywhere in the world?

Academy live broadcasts and live commentary can be accessed anywhere in the world, as can pre-season broadcasts except Palace's friendly against Montpellier on July 30 which can't be accessed either in the UK, Ireland or Montenegro due to UEFA broadcasting restrictions.

If you have purchased Palace TV+ in the UK, Ireland or Montenegro, but will be in a different country at the time of the fixture, you will be able to watch the game as long as you are accessing through a local IP address, for example local WiFi on your phone. You won't be able to access the broadcast if connecting through roaming 4g as this still counts as a UK connection.

Can I cast a broadcast onto my Smart TV?

You can cast a live broadcast to a smart TV through a couple of methods. If you own a Chromecast, you can cast to your TV via desktop or android devices, but not IOS. If you are looking to cast via an Apple mobile device, you can do so through AirPlay.

I bought an Annual pass, why does it show 'Pre-Season Bundle' on my Account page?

Don't worry – as long as your Profile shows 'Palace TV+', you are all set for your Annual pass.

I've started the broadcast but it's just buffering and won't start. What do I do?

Try pressing pause and then play again, if this doesn't work try restarting your browser of app. If you're still unable to access the broadcast, contact palacetvsupport@streamamg.com
