Optimizing the Eurosport live sports streaming platform
Eurosport, the Discovery Communications-owned sports streaming platform, connects fans and athletes around the greatest sports events. Its channels reach 243 million cumulative subscribers across 99 countries in Europe, Asia- Pacific, Africa and the Middle East. Eurosport.com is Europe’s leading online sports streaming platform with up to 23 million visitors each month.
Eurosport and Streamroot have been working together since 2015. Streamroot helped the company in the final phases of developing its new HTML5 video player: identifying performance issues, troubleshooting, optimizing ABR switching and recommending effective monitoring tools.
Eurosport then set its sights on ensuring more reliable, scalable delivery to consider growth in audiences and offer its viewers better video quality. Since early 2016, they turned to Streamroot’s peer-accelerated video delivery solution to optimize their existing infrastructure and maximize delivery capacity. With up to 75% of traffic delivered at peak times and sustained performances throughout various traffic levels, countries and ABR profiles, Streamroot Mesh is continuing to help Eurosport grow profitably as a leader in online sports streaming.
