Babcock’s Media Services announces key partnership with ground-breaking sports content service DAZN
Babcock’s Media Services today announced its key partnership with DAZN in helping to deliver new ground-breaking live sports streaming service set to be enjoyed by millions.
DAZN officially launched in Germany, Austria and Switzerland today and gives fans access to the world’s best sports, on most connected devices and with no long-term fixed contract. Babcock, as part of its contract with DAZN, will not only deliver content but also monitor 24/7 how and when programmes are watched through its sophisticated technology hub (Master Control Room) in London.
As part of its partnership with DAZN, Babcock will be responsible for coordinating all aspects of the technical delivery, including comprehensive network monitoring and managing a complex eco-system of suppliers.
Sports fans will now be able to enjoy premier sports content on most internet-capable devices - when they want - at the touch of a button. Content on offer will include top European football such as the Premier League, plus US sports like NBA and NFL, and tennis to name but a few.
...we’re glad to partner with Babcock to deliver such a complex and innovative service...
Warren Palk, Chief Operating Officer at DAZN
Leah Holding, Babcock’s Director of Media Services, said: "We are delighted that DAZN has chosen Babcock to be a trusted partner in something so revolutionary and ground-breaking. With consumer appetite for live sports content growing, we’ll be ensuring our whole-cycle integrated solutions package will meet that appetite 24/7."
“DAZN will be offering audiences unprecedented choice of live sports content and we’re pleased we will be helping to play a key role in managing and delivering that. This is an exciting time for everyone involved in the project and an insight into where the future is heading.”
Warren Palk, Chief Operating Officer at DAZN said: “Sport runs around the clock; there will always be a time when a fan will be trying to catch their favourite leagues in Europe, sports in America or tournaments in Asia, either live or on-demand. Therefore, we need an integrated solutions package that can work 24/7. Babcock is able to provide this, which is why we’re glad to partner with them to deliver such a complex and innovative service.”
