StreamAMG's Media Platform helps the GAA reach Gaelic games fans in over 150 countries

In 2014, we partnered with the GAA to deliver GAAGO – a revolutionary way to watch Gaelic games across the globe. This paid subscription service offers fans access to 49 matches, including studio presentation and analysis.

This service contained revolutionary enhancements implemented by StreamAMG, including HDS delivery, DVR functionality and the application of Adobe Access DRM.

GAAGO production and delivery was serviced from StreamAMG’s brand new MediaCityUK “Production Hub”. This was inclusive of N+2 redundant video encoding, redundant feed ingestion, live match production and post-production services.

Return on investment

We have helped GAAGO grow to an audience of 150 countries. We have delivered 7,000 days and 163,000 hours of premium content.
We have achieved 100 per cent uptime and delivery of match content. The service has been so popular that they’re now using our platform to stream games from the North American Gaelic Games, held in Boston.

“When you go overseas, for a year or a lifetime, you cling to what it is that is central to your identity. The GAA is an incredibly powerful element of that. Those overseas from Kerry or Donegal this week will feel their absence from home more now than at any other time.”
