Connected Television (CTV) Platform Kapang Signs Distribution Deal With WBC Linear TV Channel

In preparation for CES 2022 Las Vegas, View TV Group have signed a channel carriage deal on their Kapang CTV platform for broadcast in North America and the United Kingdom with leading combat-themed linear channel, WBC LIVE Channel Powered by VIVE.

With so much premium sports content ready for connected TV broadcast, Kapang viewers are in for a treat as VIVE Network has been working in unison with the World Boxing Council (WBC), to create the 24/7 professional boxing channel WBC LIVE.

The variety of international bouts has made WBC LIVE a highly sought-after channel. WBC LIVE’s curated, niche lineup including combat news, analysis, commentary, weigh-ins, pre- and post- fight interviews, legacy fights, and live events will appeal to selective sports fans.

“The combination of HD and connected TV quality and traditional broadcast approach of Kapang with the vitality of content and up-to-the-minute focus makes watching WBC Boxing from Vive Network on the Kapang platform a winning formula. We look forward to seeing the impact the channel makes with viewers on both sides of the Atlantic” commented Jamie Branson, CEO, View TV Group.

UK- and US-based viewers of the Kapang CTV platform will be able to enjoy WBC LIVE’s premium fight channel across a broad range of platforms and devices. The Kapang app is available on Apple iPhone and iPad, Apple TV, Android TV, Google Play, Fire TV stick and NVDIA Shield as well as on the Kapang Set Top Box and website. Soon Kapang will further expand it reach to Roku, LG Web OS, Samsung Smart and Amazon Alexa platforms.

“Our mission is to proliferate WBC LIVE Channel to as many distribution outlets, territories, and households as possible, and Kapang is a perfect partner for growing its global footprint for fight fans to enjoy worldwide,” said John Jacaman, VIVE Network Director.

The channel will be live on Kapang UK & US in mid-January 2022.
