Video experience pioneer Accedo is working with start-up SportsFix to deliver Asia’s first dedicated over-the-top (OTT) sports live streaming service in the ASEAN region.

accedosportsfix 14Nov2017Launched in Malaysia in August 2017, SportsFix predominantly streams live sports, sports news, highlights and video-on-demand (VOD) content primarily for overseas foreign workers in Asia, and those consuming content mainly on mobile devices outside of working hours and at weekends. The company has acquired the rights to stream matches from the Chinese Super League, Liga 1 Indonesia, Thai League, PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) and other regional leagues.

SportsFix will now be using Accedo One Insight technology to analyse usage and engagement metrics across those platforms. “Accedo’s platform and excellent team helped us launch in record time with all telcos in Malaysia and allows us to aggressively roll-out localised services in ASEAN in 2018,” explained SportsFix CEO Carl Kirchhoff. "Accedo’s proven expertise in this region and agile development of a suite of customisable products was the main reason for choosing Accedo.”

Added Accedo CEO Michael Lantz: “Sports entertainment is one of the key drivers for video services and innovation across the globe. The mix of live and VOD sports content from both regional and international matches is likely to prove extremely popular amongst consumers.”
