The OTT platform will offer the tournament’s matches for free, live and on demand, through low latency streams in broadcast quality.

Wnited, the global streaming service for women’s football, is live streaming UEFA Women’s Champions League worldwide for free this month.

The service is being delivered on Red Bee Media’s OTT platform, with content provided through Swedish rights agency Spring Media.

Red Bee’s OTT platform supports linear, live, catch-up and on-demand as well as the full range of monetisation options (including ad-funded, subscription, pay-per-view and vouchers).

Twelve group matches are streaming worldwide on Wnited, until December 16, including action from FC Barcelona, Juventus, FC Rosengård and Bayern München.

The UEFA Women’s Champions League matches on Wnited are available for free, live and on demand, through low latency streams in broadcast quality.

Matches on Wnited are available worldwide except in home and away team territories, as well as territories with exclusive TV-agreements. First leg matches are being played 9-10 December and return leg matches are on 15-16 December.

Tobias Osmund at Spring Media, said: “We are excited to deliver UEFA Women’s Champions League to a worldwide audience together with Red Bee. Earlier this year, Covid-19 halted our plans to launch Wnited at full scale, but we know there’s still a big appetite for women’s football and it is a pleasure to now introduce Wnited to fans across the globe.

Steve Russell, Head of OTT & media management, Red Bee, added: “Wnited is a great example of how it’s possible to make the most of your content rights by expanding reach to a global audience through an independent streaming service. Our OTT platform is perfectly suited for a service like this and we’re looking forward to watching these matches and tracking the global engagement of the content together with Spring Media.”
