Sportradar, the leading sports information, engineering and intelligence business, has signed a new exclusive relationship with DISH that will see it as the official provider of sports data for the network.
Sportradar will provide DISH access to its information under the terms of the new arrangement, which will be used to fuel DISH sports deals, including the Game Finder app. The app provides gamblers with the ability to view up-to – the-minute box scores and live sports updates.
Sportradar can incorporate sport information through DISH channels, including its Hopper family receivers and the DISH Anywhere app, in addition to supporting the Game Finder app.
“DISH is a well-respected leader in the pay-TV space and has been a mainstay for consumers for nearly 40 years,” said Brian Josephs, vice president of digital sport at Sportradar.
“We look forward to working with DISH in providing fresh and enhanced sports data experiences for its loyal customers.”
In addition, Sportradar will provide its data APIs to DISH from major sports leagues, including the NBA, MLB and NHL.
At the end of last month, Football media platform Onefootball strengthened its current partnership with Sportradar by appointing the sports data intelligence firm to develop its OTT proposition.
Onefootball seeks to expand its football content capacity showcasing ‘premium football rights’ across its digital platforms via PPV modules delivered by Sportradar.
