Vodafone will use its recently premiered 4G LTE network to broadcast tonight's basketball match between Spain and France in Madrid's Palacio de los Deportes.
From the stadium, using four different personal cameras placed around the pitch, Vodafone will stream the match for its 4G users.
According to the company, viewers will be able to change the broadcast's perspective during the match between the four cameras placed by the two referees, the judges' board with a panoramic view of the stadium, and in the VIP zone among the public.
Vodafone says that its 4G users can access the broadcast online via soysmuygrandes.com.
The French company is sponsoring Spain's national team and will use the match to promote its 4G network, the 150MB downloading speed of which allows high quality streaming for connected phones or tablets.
Vodafone was the first operator to launch LTE services in Spain at the end of May, and since then most other company's, as well as the so-called virtual operators, have entered the 4G market.
