OVO Mobile re-signs with Gymnastics Australia now live streaming even more gymnastics to the fans – mobile data free
After an initial partnership in 2016, Gymnastics Australia has re-signed OVO Mobile for a two-year streaming broadcast deal for major local and international events, including international Gymnastics World Cup events, such as the upcoming Australian leg of the series, which will be held in Melbourne from February 22 to 25.
This also includes live-streaming of the Gymnastics World Championships in October and November.
This agreement is the first broadcast streaming deal of any kind entered into by Gymnastics Australia, and makes local and international events readily available to the 190,000-plus participants and their families of the more-than 530 registered gymnastics clubs currently operating across Australia.
Fans of the sport can access the streaming via the OVOPlay app to gain free access to Gymnastics Australia events and other sports content. Anyone with an OVO Mobile account will be able to stream the content data-free.
“It is a fantastic time to be involved in the world of gymnastics. Partnering with OVO Mobile means gymnastic fans Australia-wide will have access to a sport that is not readily available via mainstream TV broadcast channels. This is exactly what the gymnastics community has been crying out for,” said Matt Usher of Gymnastics Australia.
Matt Jones, OVO Mobile CEO said "We're excited that the agreement with Gymnastics Australia is based on a successful trial of something that until very recently, they'd never had the opportunity to offer to their community of hundreds of thousands of gymnastics fans across Australia.
"Live world class gymnastics is no longer something fans will have to wait to watch every four years during the Olympics.”
