RMC taps Wiztivi for Sony PS4 sports app

TV technology outfit Wiztivi is providing Altice Europe-owned channel provider RMC with a new user experience for sports fans via the OTT RMC Sport TV app for Sony PlayStation 4.

Via the RMC Sport app, Altice France-owned SFR’s fixed line, mobile and OTT subscribers have access to from 5-11 extra live RMC Sports channels.

The RMC Sport service on PS4 uses adaptive bit-rate technology and includes a horizontal navigation EPG that gives access to seven-day catch-up viewing of all programmes aired on the RMC Sport channels. Suscribers can also discover trending topics in an A la Une section.

The service includes a restart feature for subscribers to be able to watch a programme up to eight hours after its broadcast.

In the near future an expert zone will enrich the user’s TV experience during football games with a timeline made up with videos of the match highlights, line-ups, matches facts, live scores and tables, according to Wiztivi.
