Realtime Streaming for Sports

Sports fans want to experience the action as it happens—wherever they are.

With the growth of online streaming and mobile viewing, it’s easier than ever for fans to watch their favorite team on their phone, laptop, or any connected device.

No one wants to learn of big plays on social media or from the reaction of cheering neighbors before viewing the action.
