announced a new partnership for a dedicated online video service built and managed by NeuLion. A new MLS integrated digital experience, MatchDay Live, is now available via the MLS homepage to deliver HD quality video and other content to soccer fans worldwide.
Built by NeuLion and powered by Microsoft Silverlight, the brand new and totally rebuilt 2010 digital service has advanced features including DVR-like functionality and HD-quality video, enabling fans to watch and engage with the game through a number of exciting, interactive real time services. NeuLion provides MLS with an end-to-end service and will deliver up to 300 MLS, SuperLiga and InterLiga games as well as other Soccer United Marketing events during the season, including condensed archive games and real time highlights all delivered in HD to a viewer's browser.
Fans will be able to easily navigate between live and on-demand games and watch condensed games and highlights, viewable on a large HD 'playing surface' right from their computers. The MLS MatchDay Live branded service also offers fans a live Field Tracker for easy highlight navigation that represents an animated aerial view of the game, a live chat tool, statistics integration, as well as embed and share features.
MLS MatchDay Live is available to fans as a subscription based service and live games are available throughout the 2010 season.
