FOX SPORTS chose Accedo to support its Watch AFL video streaming service. The service, which launched in early February, provides Australian Football League content worldwide across mobile devices, as well as Chromecast or AirPlay on Apple TV.
Watch AFL is powered by Accedo's cloud-based video experience management platform, AppGrid, which is designed to provide real-time control, configuration and cross-platform metrics from one platform.
"Watch AFL is a ground-breaking streaming service." said Les Wigan, FOX SPORTS director, Operations and Digital. "We worked with Accedo to build a new high-tech product that will deliver our world-leading sports coverage, including live coverage of every AFL game plus all the great FOX SPORTS' AFL programs, to fans around the world. We worked hard to launch the service in time for the inaugural AFL women's competition, that has so far been a big hit with fans."
