The San Diego Chargers have officially launched the Chargers DeskSite, a new HD video product that proactively delivers hours upon hours of exclusive Chargers content to fans – for free.
Essentially a DVR for the Internet, the Chargers DeskSite serves as a personalized video recorder and content library for Chargers HD video. This specialized “Big Screen” app offers new technology specifically designed for laptops, desktops and tablets, instead of smartphones, to support fans' growing consumption of online video.
To provide this new fan experience, the Chargers have partnered with DeskSite, a digital media company based in Irvine, Calif.“
The Chargers DeskSite represents a well-balanced combination of great new technology and ‘must-see’ video,” said Richard Gillam, CEO, DeskSite. “If you care about the Chargers, you need this product.”
The app automatically downloads and stores videos directly to users’ devices, allowing fans to view content without having to be connected to the Internet. Playback is instantaneous, with none of the buffering, freezing, or dropping associated with streaming video. Options include audiovisual alerts, dramatically reducing the delay between a video's initial release and fan access.
In addition to serving as a premium HD-video delivery platform and programmable DVR, the Chargers DeskSite operates as a central hub for aggregated access to Chargers digital content, including Chargers.com, Facebook and Twitter.
“The Chargers are always trying to find new ways to deliver rich, exclusive content to our fans,” said Chargers Chief Executive Officer A.G. Spanos. “We’re excited to join the many NFL teams who have also partnered with DeskSite.”
Video programming includes full-length broadcast television shows, interviews with players and coaches, postgame recaps, breaking news, in-depth scouting combine and draft coverage, cheerleader spotlights, game highlights and more.
DeskSite is a next-generation digital media company that’s revolutionizing the way fans connect with their favorite entertainment brands. The company has partnered with many of the world’s most valuable sports teams to continuously deliver highly-produced, team-specific HD video content across a broad demographic spectrum.
