Sportsnet connects Canadian sports fans to their favourite teams and athletes, using five platforms: TV, Radio, Print, Online and Mobile. Sportsnet is Fuelled By Fans, and delivers storytelling on a local, regional, national and global level. The multiplatform brand consists of Sportsnet, sportsnet.ca, Sportsnet 590 The FAN, Sportsnet 960 The FAN, Sportsnet magazine, Sportsnet Mobile and the Hockey Central app on iPad and Playbook. Sportsnet is the Canadian leader in NHL and MLB television broadcasts and is home to 162 Toronto Blue Jays games, plus MLB Playoffs and the World Series.
Sportsnet.ca is designed from a fan‘s point-of-view so that content is visually consistent regardless of the platform. The leading-edge site includes a rebuilt Content Management System (CMS) engine to deliver fast headlines and best-in-class navigation proven through consumer research.
Sportsnet was on a rush deadline and we came on board to help them finalize and deliver the platform as soon as possible.
HOW DID WE GET SUCH DEEP, SEARCHABLE DATA INTO THE NEW SPORTSNET.CA? SIMPLE...
Building the backend for Sportsnet.ca wasn't easy, but it was a challenge to be savored. We helped them building the backend for the detailed stats of multiple major leagues and sports such as NBA, NHL, golf, tennis, Nascar, Indi Racing, CFL and Soccer. To do a great job we needed to make each request as fast as possible so our biggest challenges were around improving the performance of the requests and the responses. We also helped them architecture and implement all the deployment process for the backend.
Building Sportsnet was a collaboration between an amazing front-end team at Sportsnet, a few backend developers and us. The collaboration was fun an enjoyable.
