Bwin to Live-Stream Spanish Football
August 28, 2009 (CAP Newswire) — Austrian-based Bwin, a market-leading European online sports betting and gaming company, has announced that it has secured the broadcasting rights for Spain’s two top football leagues, Primera and Segunda Divisións.
This deal allows the site to live-stream games in the hugely popular league until 2012, and includes rights for 80 countries around the world (30 in Europe). The company already broadcasts a variety of European football games on its sites, such as German Bundesliga football divisions and UEFA Champions League qualification rounds and a number of Italian games.
“Bwin.com offers an unprecedented choice of different sports, ranging from football to roller hockey," Bwin co-chief executive Manfred Bodner told EGR online gaming magazine. “We are at the leading edge of the market and continue to expand our line-up, as we’ve done now with the Primera División games."
