and Tennis Channel
announce the launch of a new online video portal dedicated to Tennis Channel content. The portal, Tennis Channel TV, gives fans an opportunity to tune into their favorite multimedia content, live matches and on-demand programs online.
The network goes beyond the courtside seats to give viewers an all-access tournament pass, with inside looks, behind-the-scenes coverage and a never-before-seen television perspective.
Tennis Channel TV is the only 24-hour, multimedia destination dedicated to the professional sport and passionate tennis lifestyle. Powered by leading sports technology company NeuLion, Tennis Channel TV is an all-in-one online media solution for tennis fans that expands the reach of Tennis Channel programming to online viewers. Content includes VOD channels, highlights, interviews and archives -- all in high digital quality.
Tennis Channel TV was made available on May 24th live from Paris for the French Open with live streaming to U.S. based fans. With the Wimbledon Tournament now underway, Tennis Channel TV streams VOD, interviews, highlights and other primetime coverage online. The event this year has set new records for ticket sales on both of its first two days despite a downturn in the economy, according to the Canadian Press.
The video player allows fans viewing of up to five courts simultaneously, live games, archive matches from earlier in the tournament, highlights, interviews, live chat with fellow fans, search feature and more. NeuLion technology also supports advertising insertions and pre-roll ads help monetize the Tennis Channel TV website. Sponsors include Capital One among others.
Tennis Channel TV coverage includes the U.S. Open, Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon.
