Endeavor Establishes New Streaming Venture With NeuLion’s Internal Video Platform
Endeavor, with a portfolio of companies including WME, IMG, and UFC, has announced the formation of Endeavor Streaming, encompassing the company’s video streaming products and services. NeuLion, acquired by Endeavor in 2018, will be absorbed within the new group alongside Endeavor’s internally developed video platform technology, and now operate exclusively under the Endeavor Streaming moniker. Endeavor Streaming will continue servicing leading properties like the NFL, NBA, UFC, and Euroleague, while welcoming new clients to the family including WWE and their WWE Network, UK based BT and their new service, BT Sport Box Office, and OSN, the Middle East and North Africa’s entertainment network.
The business will be co-led by Endeavor Chief Technology Officer Nick Wilson and Endeavor Streaming President of Business Operations Will Staeger. Staeger previously served as Senior Vice President within IMG’s original content division following time at ESPN, WWE, and Dick Clark Productions.
“There is no better home for content owners – whether an established sports league or a rising new content creator – than Endeavor Streaming,” remarked Wilson and Staeger. “We’ve integrated Endeavor’s scalable platform with NeuLion’s industry-leading technology and feature set to provide clients with the best tools and services in video streaming, removing technology as a barrier in reaching their consumers.”
“Endeavor Streaming’s best-in-class technology enables us to offer more features, elevate the user experience, and provides us even more opportunity to delight our fans around the world,” says Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman & CEO.
