FloSports, a subscription-based OTT sports media company, has tapped Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) to power its new free-to-download multiscreen apps for Roku and Apple TV platforms. The apps are intended to give FloSports customers more ways to watch live events, VOD and a range of original video content from a variety of devices, across its network of sports web sites.

The new FloSports apps are powered by Cisco's Infinite Video Platform, a cloud services platform for operators and broadcasters to process, secure, distribute and monetize multiscreen video.

"We're thrilled to introduce the millions of sports fans we serve each month to our Roku and Apple TV apps," said Tim Sullivan, chief product officer, FloSports. "It's critical for FloSports to provide flexibility to consumers so they can enjoy our live streams, original documentaries and other content on their preferred screen. Choosing Cisco Infinite Platform gave us peace of mind that we're using a best-in-class service to deliver our content."
