(NEW YORK) - Vividas, a leading provider of video streaming technology, today announced the launch of the new Fox Soccer Channel Broadband service (, powered by the Vividas Media Platform, a fully-integrated Web-based video and e-commerce platform.

The new site will offer on-demand soccer matches from England’s Barclays Premier League, as well as other international competitions to millions of viewers throughout the United States.

The new service uses Vividas’ innovative full-screen video streaming technology. The site’s e-commerce back end also offers consumers easy, instant access to their favorite matches.

Fox Soccer Channel Broadband offers up to five soccer matches each week. Users have the option to buy single matches, 10-match packages or season passes giving access to all available games. Prices start at $4.99 per match with a full-season package priced at $49.99.

"The new Fox Soccer Channel Broadband website gives U.S. soccer fans the opportunity to see Barclays Premier League soccer matches anywhere, in an easy-to-use, integrated experience," said Iain Molland, CEO of Vividas North America.

"Vividas' video streaming technology provides a win-win situation. Soccer fans will have a seamless, high-quality viewing experience, while Fox Soccer Channel receives the industry’s highest-rated level of Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection for their content."

Vividas video streaming technology ensures a smooth, enjoyable experience for the user. Content plays in full-screen mode directly through the web site, as opposed to a media player on the user’s computer.

In addition, Vividas provides worry-free DRM for the content provider, as the company encodes content with one of the highest rated DRM protections in the industry.

"Vividas' integrated streaming solution is ideal for Fox Soccer Channel’s broadband distribution plans," said Edward Derse, Vice President of Interactive Media, Fox Sports International.

"Their innovative technology provides highly scalable and cost efficient delivery of full-screen video without the need for downloads and old-style Internet video players. Streaming live soccer is a particularly difficult challenge, and we’ve chosen Vividas because they have demonstrated their ability to stream matches in high quality at full screen. It’s another step forward on the road towards IP-based TV."
