Thought I'd ask on here as the developers forum can be unread for ages....

I have an appkey which works fine with API-NG, but I get a response of "NOT-AUTHORISED" when trying
the "Authenticate" call of the streaming API.

Do I need to ask Betfair for a separate enabling of my appkey for the streaming API ?

(if not I am probably doing something wrong in the program)

Thanks in advance

Yes - you need to speak to the BDP team to enable your appkey for streaming.

BTW streaming API is the way forward - wish my software writing skills were still as sharp as when I used to do it for a living in the 90s, but even so, anyone writing automated betting software using the existing polling API rather than the stream needs their head examined.
