Hull KR.tv has been shortlisted for a prestigious Royal Television Society Award at the Yorkshire Centre Awards.
Which is fantastic news, we're extremely chuffed with this news we saw the potential of Hull KR TV after the success of Hull FC TV.
It's not the only online TV channel The One Point has innovated, we're also responsible for building a online TV channel for Warrington Wolves, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.
It was our idea to take Hull KR TV to the next level and give Hull KR fans the ability to be alerted with new videos as they get posted with an RSS feed, also giving Team Card members to access member only videos.
We later added the ability for non Team Card members to be able to access premium videos by the means of SMS subscriptions to cater for all Hull KR TV fans.
Making use of the latest technology we upgraded Hull KR TV to be IPAD compatible as well as any none flash device.
The nominees in the ‘Best Cross Platform Production’ category have been acknowledged for the ‘best use of digital content in a television production’ on any platform including web, mobile and red button. Hull KR TV will go up against VIP Plus Worldwide (Classlane Media) and A Symphony for Yorkshire (BBC Yorkshire) when the winner is announced in the Queens Hotel in Leeds on June 13th.
The One Point's Managing Director Martin Lauer commented: “As the technological backbone of Hull KR.tv we’re really pleased that it has been shortlisted for this award.
“We see the partnership between ourselves, Hull KR and Eon Media as a positive one and look forward to it being mutually beneficial for a long time to come.”
Rovers Marketing Executive Mark Power was delighted with the news of making the awards shortlist. “It’s fantastic news that Eon Media have been shortlisted for their work on Hull KR.tv and it is just reward for the hard work both they and the club have put in to make Hull KR.tv one of the best online TV services of any sports club. Hull KR.tv only launched in 2010 and we’re very pleased with the improvements we have made in a relatively short period of time, with the viewing figures and feedback we’ve received from the fans echoing that.
To be shortlisted for such a prestigious award shows that as a club we are doing everything we can to make sure what we offer to fans is of the highest possible quality and we now look forward to the awards night in June and making further improvements to Hull KR.tv next season and beyond.”
“We are absolutely delighted that Hull KR.tv has been shortlisted for such a prestigious industry award,” said Matt Dass, Managing Director at Eon Media. “We worked jointly with Hull KR to create and deliver a solution that genuinely adds value to the Hull KR fan base as well as to the club itself. “It goes to the heart of our business ethos; working together with local organizations to deliver visually engaging and mutually beneficial solutions; it’s a genuine win-win situation which is presumably just one reason why it’s been shortlisted for this award.”
