Just in time for kickoff, Evri has announced “the launch of SportStream, a robust suite of sports applications for iPhone and Android devices, powered by the Evri platform. SportStream Football, which kicks off the SportStream app family prior to the start of the NFL season, is the first and only sports app in the marketplace to connect real-time push notifications with in-game commentary through social channels.”

The release continues, “SportStream Football provides an immersive information experience for fans with real-time news from thousands of content sources. The application integrates the best and latest football information with each fan’s social feeds, allowing users to live tweet game highlights as they happen. SportStream Football also provides in-game score updates and play-by-play summaries for every NFL game, including push notifications for key moments throughout each contest. With personalization options for specific teams and key injury and trade news, SportStream Football also presents a valuable tool for fantasy football owners.”

Evri CEO Will Hunsinger stated, “Football fans, and sports fans in general, are the ultimate passion-driven consumers of information, and truly represent what Evri’s approach to content discovery is all about… Our SportStream apps offer sports fanatics a convenient, easy way to further engage with the teams, players and games they love, while connecting users’ interests with like-minded people in their social graph.”
