Netball Live provides global streaming for Sydney 2015

Netball World Cup Sydney 2015 has partnered with the Netball Live mobile app to enhance the national team tournament’s global coverage.

Netball Live was launched earlier this year under a collaboration between Netball Australia, the Australian Sports Commission and telco Telstra.

The app has been updated to include sections dedicated to Sydney 2015 and Australia’s national team, and will stream all 64 games from the tournament.

Fixtures played at Sydney’s Allphones Arena will be streamed live, while the remaining matches at the Netball Centre will be available on delay.

Due to existing broadcast rights agreements, streaming via Netball Live is not available in New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, Isle of Man or the Channel Islands.

The Netball World Cup runs from August 7-16 at Sydney Olympic Park.
