Sportsnet today announced the release of its latest digital innovation: the newly re-designed Sportsnet Mobile apps for iPhone, iPad and iTouch – available free on the App Store and in iTunes.
Following the launch of the recently enhanced app for the BlackBerry 10 platform, Sportsnet Mobile for the iOS platform is designed with the serious sports fan in mind, and uses the latest in mobile technology. The leading-edge app combines speed and functionality to provide greater access to stats, customizable alerts and up-to-the-second game scores from the biggest leagues from around the world.
“The Sportsnet Mobile app is a must-have for all sports fans that need to access content on-the-go, putting information and entertainment at their fingertips,” said Pary Bell, Vice President and General Manager, Rogers Digital Media. “With our new apps, we’ve made it easier than ever for users to access all of the information they are looking for. The iOS versions complement our existing BlackBerry 10 app and are the next step in making Sportsnet a leader on state-of-the-art digital platforms. We are committed to bringing our audiences the content they want on their device of choice.”
In the coming weeks, Sportsnet will also launch apps for Android phones and tablets, further cementing Sportsnet’s commitment to providing fans with premium sports content on the world’s latest devices. Currently, Sportsnet is the first and only sports media company in Canada to launch a digital subscription video on-demand service. Sportsnet World Online provides sports fans with exclusive live and on-demand streaming of premium soccer, cricket, and rugby matches not available anywhere else.
The new functionality and enhanced user experience will provide sports fans with all the latest news, stories and updates directly from their favourite sportsnet.ca writers, such as award-winning journalist Stephen Brunt, Michael Grange, baseball writer Shi Davidi, and more – whenever and wherever they want.
