NeuLion is delivering the US Open on CNTV 5+ VIP, China’s digital premium subscription service for live and on-demand global sports events.

According to Pyramid Research, subscription video-on-demand services in China will rise to 28.3 million users and generate over US$1.2 billion in 2016. Pyramid Research states the main appeals of OTT video services in China include exclusive access to a wide range of content, including premium sports, real-time interaction during popular sports games, multi-screen access and OTT subscriptions at similar rates to basic cable TV fees.

CNTV 5+ VIP, powered by the NeuLion Digital Platform, offers viewers throughout China an exclusive high-quality video experience across multiple devices with interactive touch points allowing them to dive deeper into the sports action with live stats, multiple camera views, real-time highlights, scores, chat and more.

China has been and will continue to be important to our corporate growth strategy.”

CNTV agrees that NeuLion has been instrumental in providing the highest quality digital sports experience with CNTV 5+ VIP. As we add more global sports events, CNTV 5+ VIP continues to be the go-to destination for viewers to consume and interact with live sports on multiple devices. Both CNTV and NeuLion are thrilled with the success of the service and look forward to continuing to grow this digital platform in China.
