With the news of present broadcasting of IPL on social sites, the clash for ordinal rights is heating up for this year, with big online based companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Jio and Amazon in the contention. Facebook Inc. on Monday acquired the tender papers for digital media rights for the Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket tournament.
Facebook is the newest media concern to show curiosity in the popular Twenty20 cricket league, joining others such as Twitter, Amazon and Reliance Jio, highlighting the varying media landscape in the country. A report in the online media suggests that the social network giant has purchased the tender documents for the bidding process.
Facebook has joint the course of the digital race to acquire the rights of digital live streaming of India’s biggest cricket tournament.
As per the reports Facebook has made several amends for the Facebook users on the live streaming context. Last year, Facebook had made a special experience for the preceding 2016 IPL season, with displays, pages, videos and more. Nearly 360 million posts, comments and likes were posted on the social network during the tournament. We are hoping to get amazed this year with the live streaming of the most awaited cricket match in the nation.
Facebook has been converging profoundly on live-streaming content, compering events such as Q&A with Mark Zuckerberg, behind-the-scenes footage with sportspersons and streaming live sports matches. Facebook being one of the top social media company seems to be ready to amaze the Indian audiences and users. We are just waiting for the live experience while making social conversations.
