ETU joins Recast for live streaming of ETU Championships

The ETU is delighted to launch our Recast Channel, joining a rapidly growing list of rights holders on the pioneering Over-The-Top (OTT) platform, enabling fans to watch content. For the first time all ETU events will be live-streamed on ETU Channel via Recast, enabling families and friends of competitors but also fans who have not been able to follow our events up until now to watch all the action.

By simply signing up, watching adverts, sharing videos, inviting friends or topping up your wallet directly, the ETU Channel users will be able to turn their interactions and viewership into Cast Credits. These can then be used to access live streams of various ETU events, as well as other content on Recast.

The ETU has provided a unique service to the taekwondo community over a number of years by producing and broadcasting countless hours of live, subscription free, taekwondo content on its ETU YouTube channel. Funds generated through Recast’s pay-per-view system will be reinvested, enabling the ETU to further develop and expand its broadcast coverage, showcasing more taekwondo content to fans around the world.

The first event that will be live streamed is the Qualification Tournament for the European Games, held on 8 and 9 April in Bucharest, Romania.
