One World Sports is bowing its app for mobile devices.
A hybrid, Watch One World Sports, is available at no charge in the Apple and Google Play stores.
Watch One World Sports delivers live-streamed games, matches and other programming to authenticated subscribers of the global sports network's distribution affiliates, including Verizon FiOS, Dish, Charter, Cablevision, Mediacom, Google Fiber, RCN and a growing number of systems through its master agreement with the National Cable Television Cooperative. The network, presenting soccer from around the globe, including the New York Cosmos, Japanese basesball, hockey, basketball and cricket, is available to some 30 million homes across the nation.
Additionally, the app provides content to all users, regardless of whether they are subscribers, enabling them to follow the network’s sports via video highlights, updated specifically for the app throughout the day, and on-demand content from an extensive library drawing from the network’s broad portfolio of global sports. The app also offers RSS feeds of news, standings and league tables; Twitter feeds; and a program guide. Other features include Twitter and Facebook sharing tools and navigation by sport.
“There are two undeniably growing trends among younger sports fans,” said Alexander “Sandy” Brown, One World Sports president and CEO. “One is that they consume sports on mobile devices; the other is that they have an increasingly global viewpoint. Watch One World Sports hits the sweet spot for any sports fan.”
