DeskSite Connects NFL Fans to Favorite Team With "Big Screen" App
New Sports Entertainment Network Brings Exclusive NFL Team Video to Desktops, Tablets, Smart TVs, Game Consoles
October 15, 2013 --
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/15/13 -- DeskSite, a digital video entertainment network, today announced the official launch of an innovative new app, which is revolutionizing the way NFL fans consume online video.
Richer, faster, and more personalized than websites, these new Big Screen apps -- called "DeskSites" -- enable instantaneous video playback without any of the buffering, freezing, and frame-dropping associated with web-based video streaming. Essentially a DVR for the Internet, NFL fans can instantly rewind, fast-forward, and play back video in slow-motion -- even when they're offline.
Instead of smartphones, these special apps have been specifically designed for desktops, laptops, tablets, game consoles, and smart TVs, and are customized for individual NFL teams. Always free to the end-user, additional features range from audiovisual alerts to viewer content curation control.
Each participating NFL team provides between 25 to 40 hours per month of HD video, much of which is either chronologically or platform exclusive. Inaugural content partners include the reigning Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, New York Giants, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams, and Washington Redskins, with more to follow as the season progresses.
"The Jets DeskSite offers fans an entertainment experience unrivaled in the digital space," said Jeff Fernandez, VP Business Development & Ventures for the New York Jets.
Patriots Publisher and VP of Content, Fred Kirsch, commented, "There's no question this new technology has earned its place at the digital table and is here to stay."
"These new Big Screen apps represent a well-balanced combination of great new technology with Must See Video. If you're an NFL fan, you're going to want your team's DeskSite," said Richard Gillam, DeskSite CEO. Delighted to partner with so many NFL teams, he explains, "There is no entertainment content more monetizable than high-def video from America's most valuable sports teams, and with our unique ability to target video ads by age & gender, we intend to push the envelope even further."
To download a DeskSite from one of the aforementioned teams, simply visit their website and look under the "Media" section. For more information about the company, visit www.DeskSite.com
