Rovers launch brand Web-Site
May 23, 2017
The Club has joined forces with EFL to switch to a new digital platform, that will include a fully mobile responsive website and online video service.
Realise (Website) and Neulion (Video Service) are behind the new-look website – giving Gasheads an improved interactive experience, whether viewing the Club’s website on desktop, mobile or tablet.
iFollow replaces the old ‘Gas Player’ video service and from the beginning of the 2017/18 EFL season, overseas subscribers will pay the equivalent of £110 per season for the service which will provide coverage of up to 46 live games per club. All matches will be available in HD quality, with iFollow showing every Rovers EFL game live, unless that match has been selected by the EFL’s overseas broadcast partners. UK and Ireland based supporters will still also have access to live audio commentary, highlights packages and exclusive video content.
On the launch of the new website, Head of Media, Keith Brookman said: “It has been a long process of building, planning and testing the new website and my colleagues Steve Hood and James Hayhoe have put in a great many hours to prepare the site ready for today’s launch. We hope that supporters are pleased with the outcome.”
“The media department’s focus is to create content that is engaging for the Club’s fan base and new website gives us a platform to do just that.”
“Built into the new website is the function for live video streaming for our overseas supporters, which we believe will be a huge incentive for fans living abroad to sign-up to the new iFollow feature, to watch Rovers wherever they are in the world!”
The Club welcomes feedback on the features of the new website, with supporters encouraged to tweet their thoughts to @Official_BRFC.
