OT7 & 247.TV – LIVESTREAMING PARTNERSHIP
On The Seven Events partner with 247.TV for livestreaming broadcasts
As a result of the great output by 247.TV covering Touch over the past few years, OT7 are delighted to be able to announce we have signed with them to cover our 2021 UK based events.
The midlands based media specialists covered the 2018 European Touch Championships, which saw over 1.2 million viewing minutes on YouTube, with an aggregate audience of 100,000 viewers of the coverage including professional commentary along with insight and analysis from players, coaches and referees. Closely followed by their excellent reportage of the Malaysian 2019 FIT Touch World Cup, with over 88,000 BBC app views!
On The Seven said:
”Live streaming has quickly become a central feature Touch events in recent years, embraced by both teams, players and referees alike. Wanting it to be feature of what OT7 offers, we had no hesitation in contacting the 247.TV team to cover our newly launched events calendar.”
The 247.TV team have always had a relaxed yet very professional approach, which aligns with OT7’s own outlook and made them an ideal fit for what we were looking for. They understand what it takes to put together a successful production, from clear planning and objectives to finding the right people who can use their expertise to explain what is happening to the viewers at home and around the world.
Adrian Battersby, Head of Production for 247.tv added:
”We are looking forward to getting back onto the field again to see some top class Touch action. Even during lockdown, we have been fortunate enough to be busy with plenty of Elite Sport so we are all set for the 2021 season with OT7."
247.TV works with a wide range of international and national governing bodies, including here in the UK - the Rugby Football Union, the Football Association, The RFL, the LTA, England Touch, BUCS, Youth Sport Trust School Games, and produces broadcasts for the Eurosport, BBC, Sky Sports and Premier Sports.
We’re excited to now be working with them also!
