Vancouver’s Live Current Media Inc. announced today that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) launched their new website – www.bcci.tv – at a press conference in Mumbai last week. This all new official home of Indian cricket offers fans an enriched digital user experience featuring deferred streaming video and mobile content as well as a live scoreboard, official photographs, player interviews, profiles, schedules, and statistics.
BCCI.tv is operated and monetized by Global Cricket Ventures, a joint venture between Live Current Media and NetlinkBlue Holding, who has secured the exclusive rights to the digital assets of the BCCI and Indian cricket. A 10-year agreement between Global Cricket Ventures and the Board of Control for Cricket in India includes building and managing the official IPL site and the official BCCI site. The majority of the content on the sites is accessible to any user for free from anywhere in the world; this partnership will enable fans to truly have a one single point of access for everything they want to know about the BCCI and Indian cricket.
The biggest asset in Live Current’s cricket portfolio could still be the highly coveted Cricket.com domain name. This world-class plot of Internet real estate recently hosted a cricket blog but the homepage now reveals it’s plans to become a fantasy cricket site. Fantasy sports + cricket = the mother of all opportunities.
