Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Multi-brand TV manufacturer, Vestel, has announced the launch of a new app collaboration that is set to bring the leading interactive livestreaming service, Twitch to more Smart TVs across Europe. Now available, the app has been rolled out to all Vestel-manufactured Smart TV ranges, including those designed for many top brands, such as Hitachi, JVC, Telefunken and Techwood.

With the app, everyone will be able to browse Twitch channels and watch live streams on any Vestel-manufactured Smart TVs that have been produced from June 2018 onwards. Viewers can look forward to a user-friendly experience, which includes one-click access to the service, thanks to the dedicated Twitch button on the TVs’ remote controls.

The Twitch community will find it easy to navigate the app on their TVs, only having to click on the remote controls’ arrow buttons to find content. Those with Twitch accounts will be able to sign in on the TVs, so that they can keep up with the latest live broadcasts from the streamers they follow.

The Smart TVs themselves support and build on the Twitch viewing experience. With screen sizes of up to 58”, 65” and 75”, they are ideal for bringing all the latest on-screen entertainment to life, including live streams of games, such as League of Legends and Fortnite. Promising a more deeply immersive audio-visual performance, many of the TVs also offer 4K HDR, and additional built-in TV speakers, as well as image processing technologies to refine the picture quality and ensure judder-free action scenes.

“We are extremely proud to be able to launch Twitch on our Smart TVs,” said Barış Altınkaya, Deputy General Manager of Marketing and Product Management, Vestel. “With this addition to our app line-up, we can connect everyone at home to an endless library of live entertainment that covers everything from games, sports, and travel to cooking and talk shows. Whatever their interests, thanks to this app collaboration, we can offer viewers more of the content they love, whilst also maximising their Twitch viewing experience with cutting-edge, big-screen TVs.”

Sajjad Rehman, Director of Business Development at Twitch said, “Twitch is first and foremost a community which comes together to experience live entertainment, based on their passions and fuelled by interactivity. And there is no more important community than a family. Bringing Twitch into the living room through the Vestel TV’s will make it even easier for even more communities to come together for those never to be repeated moments which take on Twitch every second.”

Bundesliga International, a subsidiary of DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga, and Sportradar announced the extension and expansion of their global partnership for an additional six years, through to the end of the 2031-32 season. Over the course of the extended agreement, the two parties will collaborate on bringing to market innovative data and audiovisual products that enhance the offering for fans around the world.

The current partnership was scheduled to conclude at the end of the 2025-26 season. However, with this early renewal, Sportradar receives the rights to:

  • Sublicence video content from Germany’s top two divisions to its global network of sportsbook clients;
  • Collect and exclusively distribute live match data for betting purposes, collaborating with Bundesliga and its stakeholders on an aligned approach for media data (from the start of the 2025-26 season);
  • Provide betting and streaming rights for all matches in the WOW Virtual Bundesliga, the DFL’s esports offering;
  • Expand the product and enhance the scope of Sportradar’s Virtual Sports Bundesliga, the company’s one of a kind interactive gaming experience;
  • Further combat match-fixing, with the inclusion of education and prevention services, in addition to the existing bet monitoring through Sportradar’s Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS), reinforcing both partners’ commitment to integrity.

This extended agreement continues Sportradar’s status as the official provider of betting and streaming rights for the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 (outside of the DACH region) and includes other DFL properties such as the German Supercup and each season’s relegation playoff matches. It also enhances Sportradar’s position to collect and distribute official data.

As two leaders in the advancement of sports technology, innovation is a key pillar of the partnership. Both parties are committed to developing exciting new products and services to engage the market and create immersive experiences for sports fans across the globe.

Peer Naubert, Chief Marketing Officer of Bundesliga International, said: “The Bundesliga has long been regarded globally as a frontrunner when it comes to cutting edge innovation, and our long-term partnership with Sportradar continues to reflect this. From the start, we have been aligned in pushing the boundaries of technology for the benefit of the fan, and this early prolongation, which by the end will take us to more than 25 years of collaboration, is an outcome of the trust and excitement we share for the future.”

Moritz Gloeckler, SVP of Rights and Strategic Projects at Sportradar, said: “We are the ideal partner to work with the Bundesliga in widening and deepening their fan base through the development of new AV and data-driven products, using the latest technologies such as augmented streaming and AI. This agreement aligns with our broader strategy to selectively invest in long term rights across key global sports which enable the continued innovation and enhancement of our offerings for our clients. We look forward to many years of partnering with the Bundesliga to redefine the soccer fan experience.”
