NBC Sports Digital Launches New ‘NBC Sports Scores’ App Based on ‘Rio News & Results’ App
NBC Sports Digital has launched the NBC SPORTS SCORES app, a personalized sports guide that delivers the most up-to-date scores, notifies fans of important upcoming events or moments in sports, and contains on-demand news and information from more than 25 leagues. The app is built off the NBC Olympics: Rio News & Results app, which transitioned to NBC SPORTS SCORES upon the conclusion of the Rio Games.
The app acts both as a complement to the live streaming available on the NBC Sports app, and ensures fans never miss a great moment, whether it involves their favorite team or not. The app monitors the world for trending games and, with its personalization and alerting capabilities, is able to tell fans when and where to watch that moment online and on TV.
“The NBC SPORTS SCORES app is a perfect complement to our robust digital offerings,” says Jack Jackson, VP, Digital Product Development, NBC Sports Group. “As a pioneer in the streaming space, we wanted to be able to offer fans a 360-degree experience through NBC Sports Digital platforms, and are pleased to be able to offer this companion to not just our portfolio of assets, but leagues around the world.”
A full list of features includes:
- Game trending, using a proprietary algorithm, to rate the excitement level of each and every sporting event in real-time
- Online and TV listing to every sports event, telling fans where to watch online (NBCSports.com and NBC Sports App, WatchESPN, Fox Sports Go, and more) and on TV for more than 25 leagues
