TyC Sports Signed With YuppTV For Their New Over The Top (OTT) TV Service Partner
TyC Sports, the N°1 sports in Argentina, has signed with YuppTV for their new Over The Top (OTT) TV service targeting Argentines living outside of Argentina. Whether it is World Cup, UEFA Champions, EPL, La Liga or even MLS the long “o” vowel sound of “Goal” is the signature of soccer, football or fútbol no matter where you are in the world. “We knew we had to have TyC Sports on our platform to make this a truly nostalgic offering that would bring the entire family around the TV to watch their favorite teams from Argentina, whether it is Boca, River, Colón or Godoy Cruz,” said, Damon Johnson, Senior Vice President of YuppTV and General Manager for the Americas.
“We are thrilled to be a part of YuppTV platform,” said Hernán Chiofalo, Affiliate Sales and New Business Manager for TyC Sports. “We are hoping to reach more Argentines wherever they are located in the Americas and offer the best sports programming ‘live’ and ‘Catch-up’ through the YuppTV app.”
YuppTV Argentina continues their development of a platform that allows users to watch content from their home country via their Smart TV, Streaming Media Player, Game Console, Blu-ray player, laptop, smart phone or tablet. “We are focused on choice and convenience for our customers. We want our customers to be able to watch live and ‘catch-up’ TV on their TV and not only via a PC. We don’t want our customers to sign contracts and we don’t want our customers waiting for the cable guy or figuring out where to hang a satellite dish. We won’t subject our customers to credit checks and since we are legitimate providers we don’t subject our customers to the viruses that come from those pirated websites. Instead, we want our customers to watch their channels from Argentina from the screen they prefer and watch it live or via our 10 days of recorded ‘catch-up’ TV”, said Johnson.
When asked about other channels Johnson said, “We will announce the other channels soon. TyC Sports is an anchor channel and we wanted to announce them first and give them the exposure they deserve. Our goal is to bring authentic and native Argentine channels to the platform.” When asked about when the service would be available to customers Johnson said, “We are really eager to roll this out as soon as possible. We are about to complete our beta test which has allowed us to perfect some of the details that make this a high quality network offering. We hope to announce that date in the very near future.”
