The BT Sport is now available on Netgem TV’s range of set top boxes where it joins a host of other premium content providers including Prime Video, BritBox and Rakuten TV, as well as the Freeview Play line-up of live channels and catch-up players.
The broadcaster and ISP is also launching a new ‘timeline’ feature on large screen devices, including the Netgem range, which gives viewers a completely new way to watch live sport on TV.
The feature comes in time for this week’s UEFA Europa League and UEFA Champions League finals, with a view to launching in full next season around events such as the Premier League and UEFA Champions League.
The new features allow customers watching on TV via the App to access an interactive timeline for each match to keep abreast of key moments and incidents.
Jamie Hindhaugh, chief operating officer, BT Sport, said: “BT Sport is proud to have continually broken new ground in how fans can watch live sport in recent years and today’s launches are the first to come from BT Sport Innovates, our new home of innovation.
“We’re excited that fans can sample the timeline, a new way of viewing sport on TV, ahead of its launch next season. And in joining Netgem’s platform we’re continuing to make it even easier for fans to follow the sport they love.”
