Australia’s fastest-growing community streaming platform Streamer and mining giant BHP have joined forces in a new partnership to celebrate community sport. Streamer, a WA-born community sports streaming platform and product of Seven West Media, showcases everything from karate to State tennis and even the WAFL colts.
Unlike similar platforms, Streamer allows leagues, clubs and players to create profiles, facilitates fundraising, share highlights on social media, and most importantly, control and house their own content on the site.
Streamer has seen incredible growth in the past seven months with its audience growing by more than 200 per cent and as well as onboarding more than 220 sporting clubs.
Seven West Media chair Kerry Stokes said the partnership with BHP would be a game-changer.
“Streamer is a great example of The West Australian’s continuing drive to innovate and bring new digital products to the market,” Stokes said.
“BHP is a fantastic partner and we’re really proud to now have them on board in a major way with our vision of supporting grassroots sports and events across the country.”
The foundation partnership will also extend to this year’s BHP Streamer Screamer competition for local sporting highlights – the winner of which is set to be crowned this week.
“Making a positive contribution to WA communities is important to BHP, and we know that local sports and events are core to the social fabric of many regional areas,” BHP Australia president Geraldine Slattery said.
“BHP is very pleased to partner with Seven West on the Streamer platform, which will provide new avenues for WA’s local communities to share and celebrate what makes them great.”
On any given weekend you can see high-quality, full-service broadcasts from the likes of the WAFL colts, WAFLW and NPL competitions right down to the most local of fixtures being recorded and streamed through a smartphone.
Seven West Media’s Chief Sales Officer, Brent Stewart, said: “It was a landmark moment for Streamer. It recognises the hard-work, dedication and innovation coming from the teams here at Seven West.”
“BHP have been early adopters and can see the bright future Streamer has. We look forward to working closely with them on realising the platform’s full potential.”
