Via Orlando and then Sorin, I noticed the first talks about a Romanian website dedicated to live football TV transmissions via Internet – the website (www.ligaonline.ro) should host a first live transmission in less than 2 hours and as I can see, the guys at Netbridge are still working on the layout (the website changes at every reload) and as they say, there will be a â€œtestâ€ going on tonight.
I found out that http://ligaonline.ro/ plans to be a great business for Netbridge. Their results from the Gemius online panel indicated that football is a “most wanted” subject for the Romanian Internet users. As we speak, the online service is free of charge but in the near future, there will be a tax for users outside Romania. A major step in their strategy will be the moment when the local users will have to pay in order to view a game. Netbridge plans to do this after 2007 and they are thinking paying over the SMS.
