The NHL’s Florida Panthers have partnered with in-venue audio service ProWire to stream real-time audio channels for fans attending Panthers home games at the BB&T Center. Fans can access the audio content by downloading the ProWire mobile app.
The app will stream in-game commentary and other Panthers-related content for fans. ProWire will deliver the audio streams in real-time over in-stadium WiFi by leveraging its patent-pending Crowd Flex streaming technology.
"[The Panthers] have invested in their network infrastructure at BB&T to provide the best digital experiences. Now fans at Panthers games just need their phone and headphones to access a range of audio channels with no delay,” Gordon Sumner, co-founder & CEO of ProWire, said in a press release.
ProWire was recently one of five startups accepted into the Future of Sport Lab Accelerator program. That program is co-managed by Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, which owns the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs as well as the Toronto Raptors (NBA) and Toronto FC (MLS).
