Multi-platform live streaming and catch-up TV service provider Simplestream has been chosen by Sky Bet to support the streaming of all of the Sky Bet Championship, League 1 and League 2 Play-Off matches for Sky Bet customers to access as the English 2013/14 football season draws to a close.
Kicking off on Thursday 8th May at 7:45pm, with the first match, Brighton & Hove Albion against Derby County, Simplestream’s low latency technology and proprietary Media Manager Events Module was selected by Sky Bet to deliver the month-long trial to UK fans, who will be able to watch live the drama from all 15 matches on the Sky Sports television and digital platforms.
Conor Grant, Director of Products, Sky Bet, described streaming all 15 games to Sky Bet customers as “a really exciting initiative”.
