STARZPLAY Launches Sports Streamer in MENA


STARZPLAY is looking to “disrupt live sports streaming” in the MENA region with the launch of the brand-new STARZPLAY Sports platform.

The service integrates existing sports channels with new sports events. All live events will become immediately available to watch on-demand once the event has ended.

STARZPLAY Sports will feature Italian League Serie A, enabling football fans across the region to watch all 380 matches live with Arabic and English commentary exclusively. Italian League will be streamed on the newly launched channels AD Sports Premium 1 and AD Sports Premium 2 exclusively on STARZPLAY.

It holds rights for international and regional tournaments, including Coppa Italia, Supercoppa Italiana and the Dutch Eredivisie.

STARZPLAY Sports will also be home to the Indian cricket series and the Pakistan Super League, Frank Warren boxing, EuroLeague and EuroCup basketball competitions, PGA Tour and more leagues.

Danny Bates, chief commercial officer at STARZPLAY, said: “As the pioneer of SVOD in the region and since launching our first sports channel in 2021, building an exclusive portfolio of sports in the OTT space has been our strategic priority. Now, we are challenging the status quo of sports streaming with STARZPLAY Sports, a platform like no other that will provide sports lovers more reasons to cheer. We are dedicated to ensuring the best sports entertainment is readily accessible to our subscribers. We leverage cutting-edge technology to bring users a seamless, high-quality experience and best industry low latency live streaming possible.”
