Tennis Australia taps Grabyo for digital video distribution

Tennis Australia has partnered with Grabyo to power its digital video output during 2019.

The rights-holder’s digital and social media teams will use the Grabyo video platform to create and publish video to various digital platforms.

The deal was announced ahead of the 2019 Australian Open, which begins on January 14.

Tennis Australia supervising producer Xavier Muhlebach said: “Using this platform has given us the freedom to be creative and make great content without the concerns of distribution slowing us down.”
