The first event on Fightzone debuts on 21 May, with Anthony Tomlinson facing James Moorcroft for the English lightweight title.
Fightzone is launching a worldwide streaming service to broadcast British and international boxing.
In addition to live events, fights, related highlights, interviews, and other content will be made available on-demand at Fightzone.uk, using Red Bee Media’s OTT platform.
Content on the platform will have geo-blocking and DRM functionality to enhance monetisation of the rights and segment its audience. It will also allow multiple simultaneous livestreams at broadcast quality, through pay-per-view and subscription-based options, with a wide range of price points and currencies.
The first events on the service will be the English lightweight title bout between Anthony Tomlinson and James Moorcroft on 21 May, followed by the IBF heavyweight title fight between Kash Ali and Thomas Salek on 28 May.
Fightzone general manager, Jim McMunn, said: “We are building a unique destination for British and international boxing fans, with access to incredible fights, expert interviews and behind the scenes content. Red Bee’s OTT platform allows us to reach a worldwide audience and deliver broadcast grade streaming quality on any device.”
