TSN debuts 5G View
Sports television stations TSN and RDS have begun a new initiative called “TSN 5G View.” Viewers of the stations will be able to use the TSN or RDS mobile application to view elements of live game broadcasts on their smartphones, using approximately 80 camera angles to rotate around specific plays, or to zoom in or out, pause or replay sections of video. The application is available for Android and Apple devices and is intended to make the viewing experience more interactive.
These enhancements will be available to TSN or RDS subscribers who use the Bell 5G network and own a 5G-capable device. Currently, they are only available during home game broadcasts of the Montreal Canadiens, bu the channels plan to expand the service to include additional sports events, teams and venues over time.
“Combining Canada’s fastest mobile network with our leading sports properties allows hockey fans to benefit from our world-leading 5G technology’s ability to deliver an all-new sports viewing experience,” said Nauby Jacob, senior vice-president of product platforms at Bell Media. “TSN 5G View is a great example of our commitment to leverage Bell’s technology leadership to offer our customers the best content on the most innovative platforms.”
