We are not the only ones missing sports! According to a recent Forbes article “Thanks To Coronavirus, Expect Ratings For Live Sports Broadcasts To Set Records” the anticipated return of live sports among viewers is exponential as a result of sports scarcity and the halt in true sports fans varied traditions. At TeamLinkt we have not forgotten about all the local sports and events that people are missing out on due to COVID-19 restrictions.
As a result of these demands for engagement, watching sports games can now be done from the comfort of your home without concern for distance, time zone, or a ticket purchase. Features like in-app live streaming have enabled fans, parents, and friends to become steadily interactive participants in mediatized sport through the use of digital platforms and sports apps such as our free team management app; TeamLinkt.
Viewers can engage in real-time conservation about the game, sending the team cheers and well wishes as they spectate from a distance. Live streaming capabilities and innovation in distance interactions with sports have revolutionized the game day culture and much of what has been created will be integrated into the future of sports viewing both on a local and global scale.
Live Stream Your Team’s Sporting Events
With restricted attendance numbers and social distancing protocols in place as a result of COVID-19, catching up with your favourite local teams is not as easy as it once was. These unprecedented times have challenged people in a variety of industries to rethink and reimagine the live atmosphere at stadiums and sporting events.
Creating innovative ways to integrate fans and family members into live events, as well as create touchpoints for teams, presented itself as an exciting challenge with the new restrictions that are a result of COVID-19. With athletes (and their supporters) in mind, we have made it our mission to bring you closer to the games you love by integrating live streaming features into the app. This newly re-introduced feature allows users to share in the thrill of the game as they are told to spectate from a distance. Features like live streaming in the TeamLinkt app can help you feel up-close and personal to games that do not receive airtime on local broadcasting channels like Sportsnet or CBC Sports.
Whether you are missing your granddaughter’s first hockey game, your nephew’s lacrosse season opener, or your dad’s soccer game we can help you with the transition to this new normal. Protecting our community, providing for our users, and maintaining COVID-19 protocols are our main concern.
