ORLANDO, Fla (PRWEB) September 04, 2012
XOS Digital, Inc., a global provider of sports video technology, and the National Football Foundation (NFF) today launched a new official website for the NFF, http://www.footballfoundation.org. The new website marks the completion of the NFF Digital Network, which is managed by XOS Digital and provides fans with multiple access points to NFF content in a variety of formats. The announcement was made today by XOS Digital CEO Chris McCleary and NFF President and CEO Steve Hatchell.
“We strive to revolutionize the way people interact with and consume sports content,” McCleary said. “This mission perfectly aligns Steve Hatchell’s vision to include the most technically advanced solutions to communicate with the NFF community.”
The foundation’s official website offers exclusive video content and original programming, placing unprecedented access directly at fans’ fingertips. The website connects to multiple digital platforms, including a dedicated NFF OnDemand store, Smart TV content, YouTube channel and mobile applications. These platforms all work together to provide fans access to content wherever they are while significantly increasing the foundation’s reach and ability to promote its original content. In addition, the website’s new streamlined layout is designed to provide a smoother and more rapid navigation system to ensure content is easily accessible.
The NFF OnDemand store features DVD and Blu-ray content, along with classic college football documentaries, available for purchase for the first time. Fans can access this exclusive video content through a digital account where they can select videos to watch online and access them for viewing on tablet and mobile devices.
Every NFF event will be streamed live on all compatible platforms, including the NFF Annual Awards Dinner, the Annual Enshrinement Show, and the annual announcement of FBS inductees into the College Football Hall of Fame. Fans can download the official NFF mobile application for free, and the official NFF tablet application for $4.99.
The NFF Digital Network also features an originally produced video series, This Week in College Football History, which highlights a memorable historic football event each week throughout the football season. All NFF historic content and original productions are accessible though the XOS College Sports Smart TV channel.
“The National Football Foundation prides itself on keeping up with the latest trends and technology,” said Hatchell. “That’s why we collaborated with XOS Digital. They have built an unmatched reputation as innovators in the sports world for connecting fans and content.”
