More BT Sport TV App Users Get Matchday Experience Features

Broadband ISP BT has just informed us that almost all of their BTSport TV customers will, from tomorrow, be able to access a range of new ‘Matchday Experience‘ features, with accessibility for the first time via Android mobiles and tablets (this builds on existing Apple / iOS device availability).

However, it’s noted that the feature availability does vary a bit by device and content. For example, some platforms don’t have access to the BT Sport App, such as Virgin Media’s BT Sport customers and those who subscribe to BT Sport directly from Sky TV.

On top of that some of the features, such as the ‘Stadium Experience’ and ‘Match Day Live’, are listed as becoming available around BT Sport’s Premier League matches via Android devices in “due course.” Otherwise the main feature additions are as follows.

Matchday Experience Features

Watch Together – the only service in the UK allowing fans to watch, see and chat with three other friends, alongside any BT Sport broadcast, thanks to a split-screen interface. Any BT Sport customer can create their own Watch Together room and invite anyone else who is also a BT Sport customer to join them to create a unique match viewing experience.

360 – watch live action from a range of sporting events in BT Sport’s best ever 360 service. BT Sport was the first in the world to offer live sports in 360 from 2017, and the enhanced version of 360 with Matchday Experience provides 360 picture quality never seen before. A new “pinch and zoom” functionality enables fans to home in on their desired areas of interest to make customers feel like they are at the ground. 360 offers viewers the chance to select different camera angles and viewpoints, not normally seen in broadcast.

Manager Mode – customers have the choice of adding real-time graphics as part of the match coverage augmented on the pitch. The feature provides informative and insightful stats such as player names, player speeds, and, a mini-map tracking the positions of all players for a unique tactical viewpoint. Later this season, a shot velocity tracker will become available.

Stadium Experience – fans can use an Augmented Reality doorway in the BT Sport App to be transported from wherever they are into exclusive behind the scenes experiences of leading football teams and sporting stadiums. Depending on the club and stadium, these include areas such as dressing rooms, dugouts, trophy rooms and tunnel areas.

Matchday Live – fans can access team line-ups, formations and in-game stats brought to life through stunning Augmented Reality from wherever they are watching the action.

    Perhaps they could just focus on the game for once instead of pointless shots of the team manager’s while the ball is in play.
