ESS launches broadband sports network ESPN Player

MUMBAI: ESPN Star Sports (ESS) has launched ESPN Player in Singapore with SingTel.

This provides consumers with on-demand access to international sports content, while offering an engaging online experience.
The broadcaster says that this is the region‘s first online multi-sports service to combine video, scores, and community within a single interactive experience.

ESPN Player provides fans on-demand online access to sports and programming.

Offering both live and library events throughout the year, ESPN Player delivers sports programming available online to fans through a rich, interactive, easy-to-use experience and access to the sports action with in-game statistics and scoreboards.

In addition, ESS launched two new channel offerings in ESPN HD in South East Asia and Taiwan, each localised to deliver differentiated world-class premier sports programming to their respective markets. The launch saw the Wimbledon Championship being shown in high-definition in Asia for the first time on ESPN HD.

ESS MD Manu Sawhney says, "We are driven with a single-minded aim to serve sport fans across the region by creating new, relevant and innovative offerings for them to engage with their favourite sports. Over the last few years, we have brought many such offerings to fans across the region and today, I am very pleased to announce the launch of ESPN Player and ESPN HD, which is a testament to our continued commitment to enrich the viewing experience of sport fans, and to set new benchmarks in sports consumption across the region."
ESPN Player kicked off its launch by showcasing a wide variety of live matches, highlights and a library of archival Wimbledon Championship content. ESPN Player and ESPN HD will be soon launched in other Asian markets in the upcoming months.
