New, direct-to-consumer service delivering live and on-demand Bundesliga content
Endeavor Streaming has been selected by SKY Perfect JSAT (SPTV), Japan’s largest satellite pay TV company, as the official streaming provider for their new streaming service, SPTV Bundesliga LIVE.
As the new and exclusive digital home for live and on-demand Bundesliga content in Japan, SPTV Bundesliga LIVE will be available to SPTV subscribers, as part of their TV bundle, and to non-SPTV subscribers through additional streaming subscription packages. The service is available on web, iOS and Android devices, as well as Chromecast and Airplay.
Powered by Endeavor Streaming’s end-to-end OTT streaming platform, customers can watch live games and VOD catch-up content localized to Japanese. Customers can also interact with real time data overlays, providing a truly personalized OTT viewing experience. The data services and associated interactivity features have been developed by the DFL Group, with the support of German company TeraVolt.
SPTV chose to partner with Endeavor Streaming due to their proven track record in deploying end-to-end, high-quality, multi-platform OTT services, for some of the largest sports federations and brands. Endeavor Streaming’s extensive experience in delivering localized language and UI designs added further value to the partnership.
