Draftkings Sportsbook has announced a collaboration with data provider Sportradar, providing its customers with mobile in-app live streaming of the Bundesliga and the Korea Baseball Organisation (KBO).
At launch, Draftkings Sportsbook geolocated customers will be able to stream Germany’s first division after acquiring live betting streaming rights to the Bundesliga from Sportradar earlier this month. The service will be available across all of Draftkings Sportsbook’s US jurisdictions, with the exception of Iowa.
Neale Deeley, Vice President of US Sales and Gaming, Sportradar, commented: “We are delighted to expand our partnership with DraftKings to include live streaming in their mobile app. We share DraftKings’ vision to deliver the best possible betting entertainment experience to US bettors, and we look forward to continuing to innovate together.”
Pursuant to state regulations, DraftKings Sportsbook customers who are logged in to their active accounts and have a wallet balance above $0.00 will have the ability to live stream games directly within the mobile app.
“With a focus on innovation, we are excited to further enhance our product offerings to include a convenient, state-of-the-art experience through live entertainment,” added Ezra Kucharz, Chief Business Officer at DraftKings.
“At this difficult time for sports fans across the nation, we have extended our partnership with Sportradar to bring customers the best in-app experience from the safety and comfort of their homes, and closer to the games and players they love.”
The firm has also announced that even with over 100 different leagues on its platform, DraftKings Sportsbook will explore potential expansion opportunities of its new live-stream functionality. This expansion will likely be enhanced as additional sports leagues return to resume play following the global health pandemic.
