LiveScore, the real-time sports updates and results provider, hopes to provide UK football fans with a ‘front-row’ experience after confirming it’s launching its first streaming service.
LiveScore has confirmed that after securing live streaming rights all remaining matches in Italy’s Serie A season will be broadcast to UK fans. Also, the deal will see LiveScore secure the rights to live-stream one third of all remaining fixtures in Primeira Liga in Portugal.
Ric Leask, Marketing Director at LiveScore, said: “We’re excited to celebrate the return of football by providing live free-to-air streaming on LiveScore for the very first time. This is a hugely important step for LiveScore, as we continue to innovate and offer our audience the most immersive sports coverage possible.
“Serie A and Primeira Liga are two of the most popular and keenly followed European leagues amongst our 2 million monthly users within the UK and Ireland, so this is a fantastic opportunity to give something back to our loyal user base. After a long wait for top-level football to return, this is a brilliant start for our new live streaming service.”
LiveScore ‘s partnership with leading sports OTT specialists StreamAMG will facilitate the new Free-to-air live streaming capability.
The OTT subscription service will be incorporated into the current LiveScore iOS and Android platform and aims to support hundreds of sporting leagues and tournaments around the world with live coverage, content and statistics.
