Set for launch in Q1 2020, Wnited will aggregate multi-camera content from top tier leagues in Europe, Asia and the Americas as well as national team matches to global audiences. It will also include a free, ad-supported viewing option as well as a subscription-based offering for viewers looking for an enhanced and ad-free experience. The service will be offered on the Red
