Toshiba launches Football Corner app on Smart TVs ahead of Premier League kick-off

A new app called Football Corner has launched on Toshiba smart TVs in the UK. The interactive football viewing companion app is designed to immerse football fans in every big match and major tournament, it offers a football-filtered electronic programme guide for up to seven days ahead, as well as real-time updates, insights, and statistics for matches, and tournaments in six languages.

Making it easy to keep up with every competition, Football Corner provides match schedules and the latest data for all the must-see international events in the football calendar, from both domestic and international football.

The app’s TV split screen feature lets you follow all the live sporting action at the same time as browsing the latest match, team, and tournament information. Keeping every football match centre stage in the middle of your screen, it frames the on-screen action with several navigation options…

Delivering football pundit-worthy insights, the Match Statistics option offers the latest scores and match updates, as well as statistics to give you a breakdown of how your team is performing. Giving you all that you need to make informed match predictions, this feature delivers real-time statistics about ball possession, pass quotas, duels, and team dominance, as well as shots in goal and goal probabilities.

There’s also Rankings, Line-up, and Top Lists to get consumers game-ready with the latest, most up-to-date information about which teams their side will have to encounter and beat.

“We know football fans never want to miss a moment of a live match, but at the same time they often want to keep an eye on what’s going on with other games and scores,” commented Bart Kuijten, Commercial Director at Toshiba TV. “With the new app, fans can watch their favourite team in action and still know the latest scores, goals, match stats, team updates and even red and yellow cards from other games. They can also plan their viewing up to seven days in advance without searching through different channel guides.”

Said Tobias Künkel, Managing Partner at TeraVolt, which is leading the project: “I am very proud that Toshiba TV was so taken with our TVXRAY product. Now we have the chance to offer soccer fans all over Europe an all-round gaming experience with our app.”

Football Corner is available now on all Toshiba TV 4K, FHD, and HD-ready models from 2019, 2020 and 2021.
