"UEFA launches online video service"
European football body UEFA has launched a video service for broadcasters providing live Internet coverage of Champions League matches.
Available in 96 countries, UEFA Video Service (UVS), has been developed to enable its broadcast partners to extend their rights and provide live match coverage on the Internet.
Over 20 broadcasters around the world are using UVS to make every UEFA Champions League match from the 2006/07season and every UEFA Cup match from the quarter-final stage in April 2007 available live on the Internet.
As a result, more than 125 matches will be offered in over 100 countries. As well as the live coverage, UVS also provides an archive of over 5,000 videos and 1,000 matches from UEFA competitions dating back over ten years.
The archive features a search function that allows users to find videos by season, club and player. Fans can access live coverage by visiting uefa.com at http://video.uefa.com. Based on their geographic location, users will be served with the live matches available in their territory."
