Like all professional sports organisations in the UK, Bristol Sport were left with the huge dilemma of fans not being able to attend matches during the Covid-19 pandemic.
In response, PT SportSuite has collaborated with the digital team of Bristol Sport’s professional basketball team, the Bristol Flyers, to ensure fans will never miss a moment of the action during home games with the launch of Flyers TV – a PPV streaming platform for fans.
With the UK now in a second period of lockdown, Flyers TV will provide essential streaming services that allows Flyers fans to watch their matches, while providing revenue for the Flyers in the form of match day “passes”.

Fans can access a branded video OTT microsite via desktop, mobile and tablet devices and pay a small fee, on a game-by-game basis, to catch the match action, as well as replays and exclusive interviews.
Rich Cheary, PT SportSuite CEO, says: “The launch of Flyers TV is a continuation of the excellent relationship we’ve enjoyed with Bristol Flyers thus far.
“From the outset we’ve built this partnership around sustainability, scalability and support towards achieving Bristol Flyers’ strategic goals. This long-term planning is now coming to fruition, with Flyers TV integrating seamlessly into the centralised workflow strategy and efficiencies already in place.”
Joel Osborne, Bristol Flyers head of media and communications, says:
“We’re really excited to have launched Flyers TV as the exclusive platform to watch every home game this season.
“This is the latest step in our growing relationship with PT SportSuite, which is allowing us to bring the live action to our fans this season from the comfort of their homes.
“The platform is a major first for British Basketball and we’re looking forward to working closely with the team on its further development.”
