“Prime/Time Boxing™” now in broadcast in more than 20 countries
OCTAPIXX LIVE and FOX SPORTS MIDDLE EAST are pleased to announce the television premiere of “Prime/Time Boxing™”, a new series that provides broadcasters with high quality boxing available in a weekly format. The series was launched in the Middle East to more than 20 countries in September, and is being distributed worldwide by Octapixx LIVE.
Produced in conjunction with top international boxing promoters, “Prime/Time Boxing” offers a weekly tape-delayed sampling of world title championship fights, eliminator bouts, rising contender competitions and archived classics.
Broadcasters worldwide who license “Prime/Time Boxing” will receive a weekly tape or a satellite transmission featuring a recent bout or an archived classic. Live-via-satellite, premium “event” transmissions are being planned by Octapixx to supplement the weekly offering, and provide even more boxing content to the substantial audiences that broadcasters will build through “Prime/Time Boxing”.
