OneFootball soccer platform unveils big screen viewing option

Leading football media platform OneFootball has launched a connected TV app that will bring its library of video content to millions of TV screens for the first time.

OneFootball TV will allow the platform’s +100 million Monthly Active Users (MAUs) to access OneFootball’s full suite of video content from clubs, leagues and federations on their TV screen. Integrating with its mobile and web platforms, the company says the app will creates a seamless OneFootball experience across devices.

Drilling down into the detail, the platform added: “With OneFootball TV, fans all around the world can access a mixture of free and paid live matches from OneFootball and its partners, including elite leagues such as the German Bundesliga, Italian Serie A and Brazil’s Campeonato Brasileiro Série A. (Users) can pay for single matches and tailor-made packages through the TV platforms’ native payment methods, or through a web browser QR code.” In addition to live action, users can access curated match highlights, plus breaking news and club content tailored to individual interests.

Ismail Elshareef, chief product officer, OneFootball, said: “We know our users want the option to watch live matches on the big screen, so we’ve answered their call by making it even easier to enjoy the game they love, in any way that suits them – on their phones, on the web, and now on connected TV devices. We can’t wait to bring OneFootball’s incredible variety of content to television screens around the world.”

The app is now available on Apple tvOS and Amazon Fire TV devices around the world, with support for Android, Samsung and LG smart TVs to follow in the coming weeks. OneFootball is partnering with German-based Foxxum to co-develop the frontend experience on select devices and pursue other strategic initiatives.

In April 2022, OneFootball raised $300 million in Series D funding to enhance its global reach and to launch web 3.0 venture OneFootball Labs. Having started out primarily as a results and data based football platform, growth in users has enabled the platform to expand its activities into live and on-demand video, via various rights deals.
