Live sport is returning thanks to the PDC and StreamAMG. The PDC Home Tour will be streamed to PDCTV, broadcasters and other partners by sports streaming specialists StreamAMG, offering fans a re chance to watch live sport since widespread coronavirus measures were put in place.
Starting tonight (April 17th), elite level darts players will compete from their living rooms via live video calls in a nightly league format for 32 consecutive nights. The broadcasts will include live score graphics on screen and commentary from darts commentator Dan Dawson.
To bring the competition from the player’s homes to fans worldwide, StreamAMG is managing each stage of distribution to PDCTV, PDC social channels and broadcast partners, as well as a series of bookmakers’ websites. Production is being handled remotely, with live delivery and distribution to partners through the BT Tower and StreamAMG’s cloud distribution network.
Viewers can register for free to watch the live matches on the dedicated PDCTV OTT service, as well as via multiple partner broadcasters across the globe.
“StreamAMG have been instrumental in helping us launch our first home-staged event to bring live darts to fans in these unprecedented times,” said Professional Darts Corporation Chief Executive Matthew Porter.
Matt McKiernan, Chief Operating Officer, StreamAMG, added: “To be involved in bringing back live sport is massively exciting. We’re looking forward to delivering the Home Tour and helping the PDC bring live action to sports fans worldwide.”
