Broadcast International has been selected by Vnder Sports Network to deploy CodecSys as the core platform for its Over-The-Top sports network. The three year agreement includes a revenue share between the companies, estimated to be more than $500,000 over the life of the contract.
Vnder Sports Network is a global broadcasting company with exclusive rights to niche-sports programming. Subscribers can access live and previously recorded events, as well as adventure sports programming. Vnder has distribution rights to extreme and popular international sports including rugby, skiing, snowboarding, motocross, surfing and a host of other related content.
There is a tremendous market opportunity to bring global sports content to targeted audiences around the world, commented Matt Wunderli, CEO of Vnder Sports. We aim to meet the growing demand for alternative sports programming by enabling fans of international sports to follow their favorite teams and sports that are not otherwise available. Our goal is to bring internationally popular sports to the local fan no matter where they live in the world
