In the world of live sport and news there are no second chances. Rights holders and broadcasters rely on our sports, news and events services to deliver every point, show every goal and capture every breaking news item. It’s something we’ve been doing for decades.

From conventional satellite downlink and fibre contribution, to the latest OTT and cloud-based interchange and delivery models, we can take your content from anywhere and deliver it everywhere – with cost certainty, value and the highest levels of service.

Customer-first approach

More than anything, today’s rights holders, OTT providers, sports TV broadcasters and news organisations need flexibility. Your managed services partner must be able to provide a solution that perfectly fits the needs of your event, your content acquisition and distribution model, and your audience.

You need a partner to work with you to co-create innovative new approaches and solutions as technologies evolve, and to instantly scale from single events to many simultaneous feeds across multiple seasons. By focusing on your challenges, not our products, that’s exactly what we do here at Arqiva.
