BOSTON, Sept. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DraftKings is introducing DK Live, a new app that aggregates all the critical information fantasy football players need at their fingertips, regardless of their fantasy platform. DK Live gives fans an easy way to follow every fantasy-relevant play in real time, with highlights feeds, breaking news and expert analysis—all customizable for the athletes in their fantasy lineups.
DraftKings CEO Jason Robins unveiled DK Live at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco today, and the app is currently available for free download via the App Store, just in time for the NFL season.
"Our team built DK Live with the fantasy player in mind, creating an experience tailored to each fan and connecting them to the content that matters most to them," said Jason Robins, CEO and Co-Founder at DraftKings. "DK Live is our latest way of giving sports fans the best technology and experience by eliminating the frantic screen hopping between different apps and web sites on game day."
How It Works:
The app has three main functions, all of which fans can filter to display updates specific to the athletes in their fantasy lineups.
- Custom Highlights – Follow the most exciting plays for all live games in one location and in real time. The Highlights page displays every red zone play, touchdown, turnover and 20+ yard gain for live games.
- Scores – Check out the single game scoreboard to follow a play-by-play feed for individual games, view box scores with DraftKings-specific scoring impact attached to every single play on the field and more.
- News – Stay up to date on the latest breaking player news and injury updates. With exclusive updates and analysis from a variety of experts and sources, DK Live provides the fastest updates and the most comprehensive analysis of any fantasy app.
DK Live comes on the heels of the new DraftKings Leagues feature, which allows players to create private contests exclusive to their friends.
