DIGICEL PLAYGO PUTS FASTEST MAN ON EARTH & BIGGEST PARTY IN SPORTS WITHIN EASY REACH FOR CUSTOMERSFriday 4th August 2017
Thursday, August 3, 2017 – Kingston, Jamaica: As anticipation swells around two of the biggest sporting events this summer – the IAAF 2017 World Championships and the Hero Caribbean Premier League T20 – Digicel is announcing that sports fans are in for a big treat this summer, thanks to its PlayGo mobile streaming app.
Last lap with Bolt!
Every athletics fan will want to remember how they witnessed history unfold when Digicel’s Chief Speed Officer, Usain Bolt, defended his 100m title in his last competitive race at the 2017 World Championships. That’s why Digicel is streaming the most anticipated race in history live via the SportsMax channel on PlayGo.*
And to thank his fans for sticking with him through the years, the man himself is gifting two lucky Digicel customers with one of his brand new Hublot watches as the grand prize and a pair of autographed Puma Legacy Spike as the second prize. All they have to do is download PlayGo and watch the World Championships from 4th to 13th August from the app and they’re in with a chance to win.
Bolt commented; “My fans mean everything to me – they’ve always been there for me. So I’m very happy to be partnering with Digicel to gift one of them with something from a few of my most valuable collections.”
Biggest party in sport gets even bigger!
Cricket fans will not be left out the action. As the 5th staging of the CPL tournament gets ready to bowl off in St Lucia on Friday, Digicel is announcing that fans will have access to all live games, highlights, interviews and behind the scenes coverage of the tournament via a dedicated CPL channel exclusively on PlayGo – so everyone can watch and celebrate every boundary hit during the tournament.
Speaking on the great sports content, CEO for Digicel Play Caribbean and Central America, John Suranyi, said; “We’re always finding ways to bring our customers – and in fact, everyone – closer to the things they love. And this is only the beginning. Summer is packed with a lot of exciting sporting events so there’s definitely more unique and exclusive opportunities lined up that only PlayGo can deliver across the region.”
And to make these opportunities even more unmissable, Digicel is offering everyone who downloads the app a 14 day PlayGo subscription for free. Digicel Play customers can also tune in to SportsMax on their TV to watch the CPL tournament and the World Championships.*
