PTO launches Collins Cup On-Demand Service

The Professional Triathletes Organisation launches Collins Cup app for live and on-demand content

The Professional Triathletes Organisation (PTO) has launched on-demand service for the Collins Cup ahead of the landmark event in Šamorín, making live content available on web, IOS and Android.

As well as broadcasting the entire Collins Cup event live on August 28, the application will contain the PTO’s content library including numerous video series dedicated to the ‘Ryder Cup of Triathlon’ – including the PTO’s flagship programmes Beyond Human and Battle For Glory.

The app, which is already available online, in the Apple Store and Google Play, will use a live data stream on August 28 – in combination with real-time positional data, photos and videos – to present live coverage of the Collins Cup*.

Tim Godfrey, Chief Marketing Officer at PTO, said: “The Collins Cup is a watershed moment for the sport of triathlon so we wanted to showcase this moment live to as many people globally as possible. With the launch of The Collins Cup player and live data feed alongside groundbreaking broadcast deals brokered by us and our media rights partner IMG, this promises to be one of the most watched professional triathlon events ever. The best 36 triathletes from around the world going head to head in a brand new team format – you do not want to miss it!”.

*The live broadcast will be available on The Collins Cup player, excluding Europe where The Collins Cup will be exclusively available on Eurosport platforms.
