Tennis Channel selects Verizon Digital Media Services to power its video app

Verizon Digital Media Services announced that it has been selected by Tennis Channel to power the Tennis Channel app’s video delivery, which offers live tennis matches and tennis-related VOD content to fans around the world.
Verizon Digital Media Services’ end-to-end platform, which includes the all-new Live Event Operations managed service, will help to ensure that Tennis Channel app users have access to high-quality video content, the company explained in a press release.
Verizon Digital Media Services helps power the app’s video delivery of more than 700 live tennis matches from around the world and more than 1,500 VOD assets throughout the year, including the annual Roland Garros (French Open) Grand Slam in May.
The all-new Live Event Operations managed service encompasses pre-event preparations and day-of-show operations that are handled by an experienced team of live event leads who act as an extension of Tennis Channel’s operations and engineering team. This option relieves broadcasters and rights holders of dealing with the hassle and complexities of directly managing live event OTT streaming and helps expand operations requirements to cover more events.
