Televisa has launched a sports-focused streaming platform on the basis of broadcasting rights acquired by Sky, its Satellite TV operator. The Mexican audiovisual company has named its new service Blue To Go Sports, after Sky’s TV Everywhere service, known as Blue To Go Video Everywhere.
The new OTT, which has been operating for a few days, may be signed up for independently from any Pay TV service and is already available in Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Panama and Dominican Republic. The company has not made any official announcement but Antonio de Valdés, a journalist at sports channel TUDN (Televisa and Univision), is advertising it through the social media.
Blue To Go Sports users may enjoy live content, including LaLiga (Spain’s soccer league), Premier League (England’s soccer league), Bundesliga (Germany’s soccer league), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (Baseball), Tennis Davis Cup, NHL (United States and Canada’s ice hockey league) and Diamond League (Athletics) contests. Although there are variations across countries, the monthly fee is about USD 10.
The new platform may be accessed via computers, mobile phones and tablets, one devise at a time. It will soon be accessible on smart TVs.
