LTN on Pace to Deliver over 4000 Sports Events in 2018

SAVAGE, Md., April 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LTN Global Communications, Inc. (“LTN”), the global leader in broadcast quality IP video transport solutions, continues to see remarkable revenue growth of 85% per year in the sports market. From collegiate to professional sports, more and more customers trust their content to LTN.

LTN’s unparalleled growth in high value sports events has been driven by the Network’s expanded reach and footprint.  LTN has completed several direct high bandwidth connectivity projects to sports destinations including ESPN, CBS Sports, NBC Sports, Fox Sports, BAMTech, and others. LTN’s footprint into athletic venues now exceeds 400 stadiums and arenas nationwide.

Starting with Spring Training, LTN delivered over 100 baseball games from Cactus League and Grapefruit League ballparks to regional sports networks and MLB Network. MLB delivery continues into the regular season as LTN has been selected as an International Distribution partner. Every game of the 2018 season will be available via easy portal access from the LTN Network to those with international MLB licensing agreements.

Most recently, LTN provided transmission for hundreds of regular and post season men’s and women’s NCAA basketball for a variety of networks including ESPN, CBSSN, Fox Sports Regionals, Stadium Network, beIN Sports, Spectrum Sports, NBCSN and NBC Sports Regionals.  This included post-season games for multiple conference tournaments and the NIT, CIT and CBI. In addition, LTN provided live broadcast services of NCAA Final Four coverage from San Antonio for CBS Sports Network. 

Delivery of events is not limited to TV stations, national networks and regional sports networks. In 2017, LTN provided hundreds of hours of digital streaming and distribution of sporting events to the most popular social and online platforms, including Twitch, Facebook, Twitter, Mixer and YouTube. These events included hockey, e-gaming, poker, lacrosse, soccer, and other sports. This growth is expected to more than triple in 2018.

“The strength of LTN’s 24/7 fully managed sports network is the ability to provide high quality game feeds from hundreds of venues in a simple, cost-effective, and reliable manner to both linear and digital receive sites. LTN powers delivery to all major national and regional sports networks, hundreds of local TV stations, and direct to consumer digital destinations anywhere in the world,” said Tom Buffolano, VP, Business Development, Sports.  “Our continued exponential growth is a testament to the increasing adoption of LTN as a primary video transmission solution in the sports industry.”
