FanConnect, JayThom Join Forces to Bring IPTV Platform to Australia, New Zealand
FanConnect and JayThom have formed a partnership to bring the FanConnect HD/IPTV platform to the Australian and New Zealand sports and entertainment market in early 2017. The FanConnect platform will allow JayThom clients to provide fans with a new and engaging experience on the television screens at their venues.
“We’re excited at the opportunity to deliver the FanConnect solutions to an Australian and New Zealand audience that’s engaged and ready for the experience,” says Brett Yorgey, CEO of JayThom. “Initial feedback has been overwhelming with two of the largest sports ready to run their first events through FanConnect.”
The FanConnect platform combines a live game feed with promotional and game related content, including scores, weather, traffic and standings. FanConnect is currently installed in over 50 collegiate and professional venues in the United States including American Airlines Center in Dallas, Safeco Field in Seattle, and Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee.
“We are pleased to have found a strategic implementation partner whose focus on customer engagement and experience in the sports market is a natural fit for the FanConnect platform. JayThom stood out as having the skills, relationships, and strategy to be a fantastic partner,” says Larry Witherspoon, CEO of FanConnect.
