Today, FanDuel announced TuneIn will be the company’s exclusive streaming audio partner. Millions of sports fans can now get connected to the live games and sports content that matters to them directly from the FanDuel platform. FanDuel users can also get a one-month free trial to sample everything TuneIn Premium has to offer.
“We are dedicated to elevating the game-day experience for sports fans and making that experience more immersive on our platform,” said Mike Pine, Head of Integrated Partnerships, FanDuel. “Content and sports go hand-in-hand and this partnership represents our first big step to bring live sports content directly into the fantasy sports environment.”
“TuneIn listeners are a global community of extremely active and passionate sports fans, accessing live play-by-play game content, talk shows, as well as sports news on our platform across each of the four major sports leagues on a daily basis,” said Tony Archibong, TuneIn VP of Business Development. “This partnership with FanDuel – another highly active and engaged sports fan community – was an amazing opportunity representing the intersection of technology, live content and gaming experiences, and we’re pleased to work with FanDuel to achieve this natural extension to the user experience.”
FanDuel has integrated a custom “TuneIn Button” onto its desktop platform and mobile app, which appears when TuneIn enabled games are being broadcasted. Fans can click the TuneIn Button from the live contest screen and listen to live sporting events and commentary related to their FanDuel activity.
