By Community | June 4, 2013
NeuLion, Inc., the leading enabler and provider of live and on-demand content to Internet-connected devices has announced today a partnership with the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
NeuLion as the exclusive provider of digital internet streaming services at the arena.
The new service will provide fans with live, HD video for select Barclays Center events; excluding NBA games. The exclusive partnership marks the debut of NeuLion’s technology at Barclays Center and gives fans access to select live arena events delivered to PCs, smartphones, and tablets.
For the first time ever, Barclays Center fans can buy a digital ticket to watch a live event. The new service provides Barclays Center and its event promoters an opportunity to reach local fans or connect with brand new fans that want the Barclays Center experience but do not live in the New York Metro area.
NeuLion will design and deliver the service using its award-winning NeuLion TV Everywhere Platform, offering fans live HD events that they can enjoy online while connected to today’s top PCs, smartphones and tablet devices.
“We are thrilled to continue expanding our strong technology portfolio through our alliance with NeuLion,” said Brett Yormark, CEO of Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets. “Barclays Center now has the opportunity to share some of its diverse lineup of world-class sports, concerts, and entertainment events with a global audience.”
Using the NeuLion TV Everywhere Platform, Barclays Center will be able to offer its event promoters flexible revenue generators for digital ticket sales that can be offered to viewers as pay per view, subscription memberships, or free digital tickets complemented with live advertising.
“Watching live sports and concerts online has never been more incredible,” said Chris Wagner, Executive Vice President and co-founder of NeuLion. “We are excited about our partnership with Barclays Center. Together we are taking the in-arena experience and bringing it online, adding even more ways for fans to engage with their favorite sports and entertainment content anytime, anywhere.”
