The games will be available to watch in many markets around the world, the primary exception being local markets subject to blackout.

Sports audiences increasingly turning to digital

Each of the four top sports leagues offers a direct-to-consumer (D2C) streaming plan in the US, ranging from standalone services such as MLB.TV to NFL’s Sunday Ticket, which is tethered to DirecTV satellite customers and, as its name implies, limited to Sunday games. The pricing varies from league to league and depends on whether users pay monthly or seasonally. But, generally, users who buy entire seasons will shell out at least $250 per year. – Michelle Clancy, Rapid TV News » http://bit.ly/2G3WYHU

Report: Amazon to double down on gaming with a new streaming service

GameSparks’ technology has already been deployed in Amazon’s AWS service — which has a dedicated business targeting games publishers, providing everything they need, from gaming technologies to server space, analytics, backend services and more. – Ingrid Lunden, TechCrunch » https://tcrn.ch/2D4pxTz
