(Cricket News) JioCinema’s extensive ambitions to bring cricket to every internet user and every community with access to the internet include Fan Parks, which invites cricket fans to streaming locations in more than 35 cities and towns. JioCinema intends to make out-of-home sports viewing omnipresent throughout 13 states, for the first time on digital, as part of their expansion of digital-first offerings. Since April 16, about 21 cities and towns have been covered throughout the last four weekends.
It is the first time a sporting event has been broadcast digitally on such a big scale for public watching, allowing everyone with internet access in the nation to watch.
In the opening match of Saturday’s doubleheader, Chennai Super Kings defeated Mumbai Indians by a margin of six wickets. The match was broadcast in Amravati, Gaya, Panipat, Hazaribagh, and Salem. In the second game, Phil Salt led Delhi Capitals to a satisfying seven-wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore
On Sunday afternoon, fans in Jamnagar witnessed Gujarat Titans, the defending champions, defeat Lucknow Super Giants by 56 runs in the first game, and Sunrisers Hyderabad defeat Rajasthan Royals by four wickets in a record run chase at Jaipur.
The IPL Fan Park was open to the public for free. The JioCinema Experience Zone, a Family Zone, a Kids Zone, and other areas were all specifically designated for families and children at the IPL Fan Park.
IPL Fan Parks were built in high-traffic areas across the seven cities, transforming them into centres of entertainment for the game’s supporters. People might enjoy themselves with their family and friends in addition to watching live activity.
JioCinema’s IPL viewership is evidence of the shift in consumer preference towards digital when watching live sports, and the addition of the community viewing factor has made it a benchmark for other countries.
