Eleven Sports Comes To Amazon And Android TV

“While Eleven Sports is doubling down by staying exclusive to the UK, expanding its app to more providers should broaden its audience.”

After a year as a Google Chromecast exclusive, United Kingdom digital streaming service Eleven Sports announced it is expanding its app’s availability to Amazon Fire TV Stick and Android TV with Samsung Smart TV support to follow soon.

Eleven Sports primarily showcases Spain’s top soccer league La Liga.

“The launch of these user-friendly, high-quality apps for Amazon Fire TV stick, Android TVs and Samsung Smart TVs ensure that Eleven Sports is easier to watch and more accessible than ever for football fans,” said Marc Watson, Eleven Sports executive chairman and chief executive.

“This development also gives fans in the UK and Ireland even more ways to watch wall-to-wall La Liga action, including an enthralling El Clasico doubleheader, on TV,” Watson added.

2018 was a rough launch year for Eleven Sports, having to relinquish rights to the UFC, Italian soccer league Serie A and Dutch soccer league Eredivisie. While Eleven Sports is doubling down by staying exclusive to the UK, expanding its app to more providers should broaden its audience.
