Personalized content delivery and interfaces, mobile-adapted camera angles, interactive on-screen graphics and more help differentiate the mobile experience and improve engagement. Content owners are increasingly relying on unique mobile experiences to capture new viewers, particularly younger viewers, and retain existing subscribers to drive revenue.
NeuLion’s work with the NBA in redesigning the mobile app for NBA League Pass International, the league’s subscription video product for live and on-demand basketball content, demonstrates how forward-thinking content owners can use NeuLion’s technology to enhance the mobile viewing experience. Shortly after the NBA noticed year-over-year increases in mobile content consumption, they responded by working with NeuLion to create brand new mobile-specific content and features, only available on the NBA League Pass mobile app.

As part of that, this past season saw the introduction of NBA Mobile View, a unique zoomed-in camera feed adapted for viewing on smaller screens. Mobile View includes interactive on-screen graphics that let fans view player profiles, stats, and live scores right “on top” of live and on-demand games. The interactive graphics create a rich viewing experience and provide new opportunities for media companies to engage directly with audiences.
NeuLion and the NBA also collaborated to develop and support new mobile-specific content that helps the league’s international fans to watch whenever and wherever they want. NBA Rapid Replay publishes live trending highlights from around the league each night. Rapid Replay is enabled by NeuLion’s content recommendation engine, which uses a combination of profile settings and viewing data to curate content libraries as well as provide the ability to filter the videos by team, player, type of video and more.
