Pay-TV operator Fox Sports Australia has introduced a single mobile app, developed by Netco, to deliver its premier sports content.

The app provides extensive video highlights and past matches on-demand, live scores for over 140 competitions, statistics and analysis, fixtures and results, breaking news and exclusive editorial features.

"Fox Sports is Australia's leading sports provider; no one does sport better than us and fans love our depth and breadth of content. We've listened to sports fans and know there is a demand for an app that covers all the big sports," said Patrick Delany, CEO, Fox Sports.

"The ability to personalise the content and tailor to the way fans like to follow their sport and their team will really set this app apart from the rest," he added. "Features like alerts on score changes across multiple matches and sports, notifications when games are close or breaking news on their favourite teams, will make every fan fall in love with our new app."

The second screen app, available for mobile devices and the Apple Watch, features an electronic programme guide to easily search and view live content.

"We strongly believe that the app will deliver a significant breakthrough digital experience to sport fans in Australia, and this will be a great start for a long-term cooperation between Netco Sports and Fox Sports Australia," said Jean-Sebastien Cruz, founder and CEO, Netco Sports.
