Planet Sport makes India debut with B2B push
The sports media specialist is offering a range of development and content services to operators, suppliers and affiliates targeting the high-growth region
Planet Sport, the B2C and B2B sports media specialist, has made its debut in the fast-growing Indian market where it will be offering a full suite of products and services to operators, suppliers and affiliates targeting the region.
This includes website and app design and development, plus the delivery of editorial content in both English and Hindi. Content will be written by native speakers based on the ground in India who have a knowledge of both sports and betting.
Content will initially be offered on key sports such as cricket, major football leagues and competitions, tennis, esports, hockey and badminton with more to follow. Planet Sport will also be offering its proprietary Live Score Centre to deliver up to date information on any sport with ultra-low latency.
The company has already signed its first client in India and is in late stage talks with others as it prepares to make a significant push into the market with its B2B services.
Dean Rayson, Head of Sales for B2B Betting at Planet Sport, said: “This is a major milestone for Planet Sport as we see the Indian market as having tremendous potential and one where our B2B products and services can help a wide range of stakeholders leverage the opportunity on the table.
“In particular, we are proud to be able to offer editorial content en-masse in Hindi as we believe this sets us apart from others in the market. India really is the place to be, and this is the first in a number of exciting developments on the B2B side of the business.”
The news comes shortly after Planet Sport launched its innovative Planet Vision live casino cross-sell tool that allows operators to integrate video and live odds streams into the live casino environment to deliver continued engagement between each bet.
