Tiger Premier League Pass Now Available

Tiger Premier League Pass Now Available

Tomorrow (24/12/13) Tiger Premier League Pass ( will launch its new HD option with the live Arsenal vs Chelsea Barclays English Premier League game at 09.00hrs (NZST).

The HD option will be free to all subscribers, including new Month and one-off Day Pass subscribers, for all content including both live and on-demand games.

The HD feature is completely optional as subscribers will naturally require a consistently fast internet connection to carry a steady 4500 kbps HD stream to screen. And a full 90 min game in HD will take approximately 3.2GBs of data. To this end, some subscribers will need to optimise their set up to accommodate the data consumption and get the very best out of this this HD streaming option, says Tim Martin, CEO at Coliseum Sports Media.

“The 4500 kbps stream is available on iPad and PC. But for the best viewing experience we would recommend Telecom Ultra Broadband and watching on iPad, air playing through Apple TV; which is ravishing.

‘We are really happy that our free HD option kicks off just in time for fans to be able to pick from 30 live games over the festive, football season (26/12/13 – 01/01/14). Boxing Day and New Year’s Day both have 10 great games lined up for the fanatics amongst us and the Arsenal vs Chelsea game itself, is set to be a Christmas Eve cracker!

“As an evolving product with the connected consumer at our core, we are continually adapting to our subscribers needs by applying on-going innovation to the content itself and how it is delivered. The more freedom we can give fans on what they want to watch; where they want to watch; when they want to watch and how they want to watch it; the more relevant and better the viewing experience is”, Martin concludes.
