Twitter inks live stream deals for Wimbledon, Comic-Con coverage, and more

Twitter’s Wimbledon deal is with the The All England Club, not ESPN, which is partnering with Twitter to live stream The Wimbledon Channel during the event. This coverage will include daily content, like news and interviews, behind the scenes footage, and “selected action” from the matches. (In other words, you can’t watch the matches in full, live). The addition is one of several deals Twitter has announced over the past couple of weeks. Another notable partnership is with IGN, which will live stream from the huge entertainment event, San Diego Comic Con 2017, via comiccon.twitter.com. – Sarah Perez, TechCrunch http://ift.tt/2ttGqCK
