UEFA Women’s Champions League to be streamed worldwide through Wnited
The UEFA Women’s Champions League is to be live streamed this December by Wnited, the global streaming service for women’s football.
Delivered through Red Bee Media’s OTT platform, Wnited is a digital home for women’s football that aims to tap into an underserved market by creating a common place for women’s football content and a community for the growing, yet scattered, group of global fans.
Wnited was created by content rights agency Spring Media with support from Red Bee Media. Viewers can watch live sports action from some of the greatest women’s football teams in the world, including Barcelona, Juventus, FC Rosengård and Bayern Munich.
“We are excited to deliver UEFA Women’s Champions League to a worldwide audience together with Red Bee,” said Tobias Osmund, chief executive officer at Spring Media. “Earlier this year, COVID-19 halted our plans to launch Wnited at full scale, but we know there’s still a big appetite for women’s football and it is a pleasure to now introduce Wnited to fans across the globe.”
Steve Russell, head of OTT and media management at Red Bee, added: “Wnited is a great example of how it’s possible to make the most of your content rights by expanding reach to a global audience through an independent streaming service. Our OTT platform is perfectly suited for a service like this and we’re looking forward to watching these matches and tracking the global engagement of the content together with Spring Media.”
The UEFA Women’s Champions League matches on Wnited are available for free, live and on-demand, through low-latency streams in broadcast quality, with the first leg matches on 9 to 10 December and return leg matches on 15 to 16 December.
