Hold the Championships in your hands Today, as part of its 360o service, Secuoya presented the mobile app for the Freestyle and Snowboard World Championships, developed by the digital team at Secuoya Corporate. Through this new app you can follow every moment at Sierra Nevada 2017. An application for iOS and Android, it offers full coverage of the events at the Championship. With a live video channel and the opportunity to consult statistics of the results of all competitions, it is an agile and dynamic tool that provides detailed information related to the World Cup. This free application is distributed through AppStore and Google Play.
Secuoya, who was awarded the public contest that was launched last year, enhances its profile as one of the leading companies in the international retransmission of major events. "Contests like this are a perfect example of transparency and equal opportunities with regard to sports television broadcasting," says Berdonés, "who don’t always favour open competition when it comes to audiovisual production rights of other sporting events. That is why we have submitted a complaint to the National Markets and Competition Commission (NMCC) to appeal against a contract which binds the National Professional Football League with a company for the audiovisual production of the signal of all matches and the news summaries. We feel that this barrier makes it impossible for other companies within the sector to compete and violates competition regulations. In Spain there is not just one company capable of producing high level sporting events, there are more of us, and the event we present today and our presence here demonstrates this," he concludes.
