DraftKings Sportsbook has revealed that it will work with Sportradar data provider to offer live streamed sports games within its mobile application. The aim, the firm said, is to provide a seamless entertainment experience for customers in one convenient location.
DraftKings Sportsbook customers who are signed into their active accounts and have a wallet balance over $0.00 will be able to live stream games directly through the mobile app, in compliance with state regulations.
At the launch, geolocated customers of DraftKings Sportsbook will be able to live stream a variety of sports, including the Korea Baseball Organisation and the Bundesliga Soccer (Division 1) across jurisdictions except Iowa.
With a total of over 100 different leagues on the platform and as additional sports leagues return to resume playing, DraftKings Sportsbook will explore potential opportunities for expanding live stream functionality.
Ezra Kucharz, Chief Business Officer at DraftKings said: “With a focus on innovation, we are excited to further enhance our product offerings to include a convenient, state-of-the-art experience through live entertainment.
“At this difficult time for sports fans across the nation, we have extended our partnership with Sportradar to bring customers the best in-app experience from the safety and comfort of their homes, and closer to the games and players they love.”
Neale Deeley, US Sales and Gaming Vice-President, Sportradar, commented: “We are delighted to expand our partnership with DraftKings to include live streaming in their mobile app. We share DraftKings’ vision to deliver the best possible betting entertainment experience to US bettors, and we look forward to continuing to innovate together.”
