Earlier this month, UK Premier League football club Manchester City launched a website featuring exciting new online video offering produced by Endemol Sport and powered by Brightcove. The website design and video implementation was spearheaded by London-based creative agency and Brightcove Alliance partner, Poke. We are thrilled about the successful launch, the beautifully customized player experience, and huge volume of frequently updated, rich video content now available for the club's fan community.
We are also very excited to announce that Manchester City will be using the Brightcove online video platform to stream a live football match with the Orlando Pirates on Saturday the 18th at 3:0pm GMT+1 (London TIme) to the world (no geo restriction, no pay per view!). Tune into http://mcfc.co.uk/ on Saturday for the live event, which will be available in high and low bandwidth streams (high at 900K and low at 450K).
