4 noteworthy LIVE sports pay-per-view broadcasts this summer!

The sports fans cannot get enough of the Live sports pay-per-view broadcasts. It’s been a very active summer for our Cleeng Publishers and we’ve seen lately many interesting summer competitions, that made the most of the Cleeng Live! solution.

We’ve been supporting large, widely sought after broadcasts, such as the FIFA World Cup in July, but also the niche sports Live streams, such as boat racing, horseback riding, roller skating or flat track roller derby. We cherish those events, as they allow our Publishers to reach their global community in the easiest, most effective way.

pay-per-view-streaming-sports

The 2014 FIFA World Cup was not only a major event for the soccer community, but also for many sports broadcasters worldwide. To let all soccer fans stay in on the action anytime and anywhere, many broadcasters – especially those outside U.S., decided to enable online pay-per-view streaming. 

Among them also Sportsmax TV, the Caribbean’s 24-hour Sports Cable channel, dedicated to showing the top sporting content the world over to a Caribbean audience (22 countries, 30m people). All games of this year’s World Cup were available for the local, die-hard soccer fans online, as Live Pay-per-view and Video on-demand (replays) thanks to the Cleeng Live solution and Livestream.

I’m talking to Jamie Ranston – Interactive Media Director at CGR Communications - a Jamaican media agency that coordinated the Sportsmax TV implementation with Cleeng. How Pay-per-view can benefit major sports broadcasters and how to succeed streaming online? Answers below.

With the FIFA fever still on, I’d love to share with you this great soccer website, run by one of our Cleeng Publishers. As a huge football fan I was really happy to discover The18 - from news, to soccer on-demand tutorials to community, it’s my ultimate soccer destination.

Dare, Drive, Deliver – Cleeng + Team Spirit

 

The Cleeng Team

It’s already been 3 years since Cleeng launched, and we just held our first ‘Global Conference’ 3 weeks ago with the entire team coming together!When you launch a startup, you are full of dreams.

You expect your success to be immediate. The reality is a lot less glamorous, and it takes months to find your way, identify the right niche market and instill a common company culture. It’s very often frustrating and demanding, but as Steve Jobs used to wisely say,

“What matters is the journey, not the destination.”

You suddenly and truly realize exactly what he meant.

Fortunately, we at Cleeng have now reached a point where we can finally focus our total energies on building a global leader in a clear market segment: helping people sell their videos.  Nonetheless, this can only be possible with the right team.  Take, for instance, our latest project - the 2014 FIFA World Cup live streamed to 23 Caribbean countries, which is a perfect example of the combination of robust technology and teamwork: we signed up just a week before its start and managed to setup higher-capacity servers, increase global coverage and optimize a viewer payment plan that works well for the Caribbean countries. The bottom line is that it all ran very smoothly, thanks in great part to the skills, devotion and passion of the Cleeng team.
