Eurosport Player & Tokyo 2020 Olympics
FX Digital collaborated with Eurosport to provide a premium viewing experience for their extensive coverage of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Developing an unparalleled viewing experience for the world’s most prestigious games
We worked with Eurosport on their web-based TV application which is supported across Connected TV platforms (including Samsung Tizen, Android TV, Amazon Fire) and Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. For Eurosport’s Olympic coverage, we worked with the Eurosport product and project team on the development of an Olympics mode that allows the user to switch between Olympics content and the regular content on Eurosport Player. This ensured that the Eurosport application adhered to the International Olympic Committee’s broadcasting standards, as well as providing a great user experience for the audience by highlighting to the minute, live sports action from the Olympics while keeping Eurosport’s regular programme of VOD and live content within reach.
With Eurosport Player across such a large range of territories and markets, we had to ensure that appropriate geo-blocking and content restrictions were in place where appropriate.
Our team provided quality assurance testing throughout the development of the Eurosport Player features for the Olympics and provided 24/7 support throughout the games to ensure that viewing would not be interrupted.
