We’re constantly looking for innovative solutions to add to our offering. This joint solution gives sports customers a highly flexible and scalable platform to broaden the reach and availability of premium sports content to worldwide audiences, enriching viewers’ experience and generating new revenues. It offers us an effective way of bridging the gap between the traditional broadcast world and new digital media capabilities.”
