Falcon Media House Limited – Beta Launch of ECAC Sports Service

30 June 2017

Falcon Media House, the global digital media group focused on the over-the-top (‘OTT’) market, has beta launched a dedicated sports OTT service with The Eastern College Athletic Conference (‘ECAC’), the largest US east coast collegiate athletic college conference comprising approximately 250 schools.  The collaboration, branded the ECAC Network, will offer sports fans, families and friends the chance to live stream more than 30 men’s and women’s college sports, as well as view a wide range of on-demand lifestyle content.


The ECAC Network, which is currently in beta mode, will launch commercially in time for the 2017 / 2018 academic year, including planned coverage of basketball, field hockey, track and field, tennis, gymnastics, lacrosse, golf and soccer.


The service uses Quiptel Q-Flow software to offer a seamless, buffer-free experience anywhere, anytime on a broad variety of devices. Teevee Makers, which is a new breed TV production company and part of Falcon Media House Group, will manage all content with the aim of generating a fresh style to sports coverage and attracting large numbers of highly engaged fans.


Falcon Media House Executive Chairman, Gert Rieder commented, “We’re thrilled to announce this partnership with the ECAC, an association with a brilliant heritage and strong credibility in college sports. This marks the beginning of our journey to offer seamless streaming of high quality content in the U.S. and constitutes a significant step in realising our ambition to revolutionise the OTT industry by offering viewers a superior experience.  Powered by our unique Quiptel technology and running over Tata’s infrastructure, we are striving to raise the profile of college sports and broaden the ever-growing ECAC sport fan base.”


Dan Coonan, CEO, ECAC, said, “This partnership represents an enormous opportunity for all of our member institutions, their teams and student-athletes, as well as fans, friends and family to enjoy and engage with the sports in a whole new way. Not only will there be a vast amount of high quality coverage of our championships, but there will be a whole host of special programming and features.  All this will be available on a world-class streaming platform, which offers a seamless viewing experience wherever the viewer is.”
