UCF Partners With NeuLion to Deliver Next-Gen Digital Video Network
NeuLion announced a partnership with UCF (University of Central Florida) Athletics to deliver a first of its kind, digital sports network on web, Apple TV and Roku.
UCF chose NeuLion because of its extensive experience delivering exceptional video experiences for top sports leagues and teams worldwide and over 100 colleges and conferences across the United States. With a young alumni base, the new video network, UCFKnights.TV, will target UCF’s young demographic of alumni and future recruits through a single destination for all live and on-demand content, accessible anytime and anywhere.
“Audiences in today’s always-on, multi-device world continue to consume content very differently,” says Danny White, UCF Vice President and Director of Athletics. “By working with NeuLion, we can ensure our fan-base always has access to the highest-quality video content in a seamless, personalized experience across multiple devices.”
UCFKnights.TV, scheduled to launch in August, will give subscribers a completely immersive viewing experience with interactive touch-points including live-game streaming, highlight packages, full DVR controls, social media integration and more. Fans can now connect and engage with UCF Athletics like never before.
“NeuLion continues to lead the way in college athletics. We are excited to partner with UCF to deliver a first of its kind, digital video network for an individual school as well as deliver that exceptional experience to the big screen through Apple TV and Roku,” says NeuLion SVP of College Business Development Timothy Vargas.
