Teaming up with sports live content provider Sportsradar, DraftKings sportsbook has announced it wil be streaming live events from its mobile app.
The streaming will be available for anyone that has funds in their account. As of right now it appears they will be streaming Korea Baseball Organization and Bundesliga Soccer (Division 1) as these are some of the only events happening. But time will tell how far this capability will take them.
It is believed the streamed sports will use geolocating to identify where the customer is and then offer sporting events based on that information.
Chief Business Officer at DraftKings Ezra Kucharz: “With a focus on innovation, we are excited to further enhance our product offerings to include a convenient, state-of-the-art experience through live entertainment.”.
As of right now, it seems that Iowa is the only state which sports betting is legal which the service won’t be offered. This may change over time.
DraftKings sportsbook (and live streaming) is currently approved for New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Indiana, New Hampshire and Colorado.
