PLAINVIEW, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 -- NeuLion, Inc. (TSX: NLN), the leading enabler and provider of live and on-demand sports content to Internet-connected devices, today announced the release of the latest version of the popular BTN2Go service. Powered by NeuLion, BTN2Go features a 24/7 simulcast of the Big Ten Network (BTN), live games, and on-demand programming across multiple devices. BTN2Go is available to BTN subscribers of the participating cable, satellite, and telco providers.

The new V.2 release of BTN2Go is available on three platforms: the Internet, iOS (iPad and iPhone), and Android (smartphones and tablets) and includes new interactive features for Big Ten fans. With live game stats and deep social media integration, watching a game on BTN2Go offers fans a complete viewing experience.

The new features:

  • Include an exciting new video player offering fans more HD content, live stats for all Big Ten Games and social media overlays; and
  • Provide integrated news feeds from BTN.com.

"Version 2.0 of BTN2Go offers fans the experience they expect when watching games on digital platforms," said Michael Calderon, BTN vice president of programming and digital media. "We have seen our audience and the time spent online grow with the added social media features and expanded content now available in the service."

"We are doing some really cool things with BTN2Go," said Chris Wagner, Executive Vice President of NeuLion. "BTN is the first to get a fully authenticated service with BTN affiliates that also gives its advertising group more sellable inventory, especially with the dynamically inserted ads in live programming. And we can do this for all devices. Now that's a TV business model."
