Man City Becomes First Premier League Side To Launch Amazon Fire App

Man City achieved a Premier League "first" by launching an app for Amazon Fire TV, according to David Prior of PROLIFIC NORTH. The app allows Man City’s fanbase to stream CityTV videos "directly onto a connected TV via the Amazon Fire TV platform." The content "includes behind-the-scenes tunnel access on match days, Pep Guardiola-led training sessions, player interviews and special features, such as 10-part series Global City" (PROLIFIC NORTH, 10/31).

FAN APP: Sportego developed a Deliveroo-branded fan app which will be a first in football, offering Premier League side Bournemouth fans the chance to win Deliveroo vouchers through a club-dedicated fantasy and predictor game. New features will be added over the course of the season as the app evolves with quizzes and probability widgets coming soon. Sportego has worked with the likes of West Bromwich Albion, Cardiff City, Birmingham City, Chesterfield FC and Bury FC on fan products and Sky Sports with the Football Whispers algorithm (Bournemouth).
