RR Media in partnership with Pi Telecom is providing a new online platform for sports organisations which offers premium and subscription based content to worldwide audiences.
The platform is already being used by FC Barcelona for its Game PASS service, allowing users to watch FC Barcelona matches on-demand, along with exclusive content about the players.
Users can access various free and subscription-based content on any screen and device, with increased monetisation opportunities for sports organisations such as subscriptions, advertising, merchandising and social media experiences.
Content and services can be featured on the platform from sports federations, leagues, teams, broadcasters, channels and media rights agencies, including official on-demand and live streaming content channels; archive content; premium highlights and feature interviews; and multi-lingual content.
“Many of the top names in sports already use RR Media’s sports services, which include content management, playout, global content distribution and other online video services,” said Elad Manishviz, CMO of RR Media. “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.”
