Commercial breaks, timeouts and halftime are the best opportunities to take a bathroom break or hit the concession stands when you attend a sporting event. It’s the only way to assure that you don’t miss any of the action, and if you paid good money for a ticket you want to get the full experience. However, these are the times when bathroom and concession lines are the longest. Fear not, Brooklyn Nets fans — you guys are covered. According to The Verge, the Nets launched a new addition to their Barclays Center smart phone app on Wednesday night that allows fans to stream the games for free on their iPhone or Android device while inside the stadium. This means that any time a fan gets thirsty or needs to use the restroom, they can simply pull the game up on their phone and continue watching while they are away from their seat. And that’s not all. If you happen to miss something — say while the dude at the beer stand is taking your order — the app allows you to rewind up to 30 seconds of missed action. It also allows you to switch between four cameras, some of which feature the regular TV broadcast views and others that stream from GoPro cameras mounted around the arena. The app is powered through Cisco’s StadiumVision Mobile, which incorporates an advanced “multicast” system that is supposed to remain uninterrupted even if 19,000 people are using it at once. It sounds so advanced that I’m fully confident a Nets PR team that sends tweets like this had nothing to do with developing it. It may be disturbing to some, but we live in a world where people’s faces are constantly buried in smart phones and tablet devices. If you’re thinking people don’t need WiFi and live-streaming games on their phone while they’re at an actual sporting event — think again. All stadiums and arenas will likely have this at some point. The Nets are simply ahead of the curve. H/T Gizmodo The post Nets launch app that allows fans to live stream games for free at Barclays Center appeared first on Larry Brown Sports. No related posts.
