2 December 2021, London, UK: LPB, the Baseball Professional League of Colombia, has chosen Stream Viral as its OTT platform of choice to broadcast its online live games. Stream Viral, a UK company with a strong South American presence, will exclusively live stream the LPB's live baseball games online for both domestic and international customers via BEISBOL COLOMBIA TV.
Stream Viral is quickly making a global reputation in the implementation of customized streaming platforms specifically for the sport industry for broadcasters, media right holders and content producers. Founded in London in 2020, the company has outstripped its own expectations and quickly expanded its operation. It can now boast newly installed customers that include JONRONTV, UK Tennis Pro-League and LNB Chile TV.
Ricardo Mendoza Puccini, Sales & Marketing Director of LPB said “One of the great pending plans at LPB was to fully enter the digital broadcast world, with OTT being one of our great ambitions. Working with a team as professional as Stream Viral, they took our needs and implemented them quickly while making it look easy. This initiative will catapult us to amongst the most demanding baseball fans in Colombia and the wider world”.
The launch date is 8th December 2021, when the action begins at the historic Barranquilla where the OTT platform will begin to broadcast the entire season from many different venues, the playoffs and the finals. The solution will be scalable; with an initial launch of the branded OTT website, and later the addition of an application for Smart TVs, Samsung, LG and Android TV.
Further commenting on the partnership, Isobelle Benge, Stream Viral CTO, added: “Our first project in Baseball was with the LMB, a huge challenge where we are live streaming more than 700 games and 3,000 hours of live content. With that experience, it has put us in an enviable position to implement other baseball leagues in the world such us LPB. I am proud that as Stream Viral grows, we can help provide OTT solutions for both large and small organizations to build their own customized online broadcasting platform.”
