CamSoda Legends brings MMA greats to world’s first interactive live broadcast
Today, CamSoda, a live cam platform, announced its first-ever mixed martial arts (MMA) event, CamSoda Legends. This continues Camsoda’s foray into original digital programming.
The event, scheduled for 26 April in Fort Lauderdale, will be live streamed for free on http://legends.camsoda.com. Featured bouts on the stacked card include Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Ricco “Suave” Rodriguez taking on UFC veteran Alex “The Spartan” Nicholson as well as Pride veteran “Felony” Charles Bennett versus Bruce “The Iron Lion” Lutchmedial, in addition to several others.
For the first-time ever, fans will be able to directly interact with fighters in real time. As the fights occur, fans watching the livestream will be able to determine bonus money and provide extra incentive for specific finishing moves.
“Live streaming has quickly become a focal point for heavyweights such as Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and YouTube. Here at Camsoda we are committed to delivering compelling content that directly engages our users. With Camsoda Legends we will offer hard hitting action-packed interactive content catering to combat sports fans all over the world,” said Daryn Parker, VP, CamSoda.
The fight is to watch. Similar to web camming, those watching the live stream can purchase tokens that will enable them to tip toward fight goals and determine cash bonuses. These specific requests will be relayed to the fighters in real time during their fights. The more a user tips, the more direction over the fights they are afforded.
The event will be simulcast in 4K virtual reality (VR), allowing fans to step inside the ring and experience the octagon like never before.
CamSoda Legends marks CamSoda’s official foray into the MMA world. In the coming months, the company plans on announcing additional original digital programmes catered to its user base, including livestreaming various high-octane events and erotic gameshows.
CamSoda Legends will be available for free for current CamSoda users.
