Elevator Pitch:

At OVO we love sport and we love being entertained. We're big fans of sport - motorsport, tennis, gymnastics, footie, rugby, volley ball....it's a long list.

Like the fans out there we've watched matches on our mobile, listened to commentary while we're in the car, met mates at the pub to watch the grand final, paid through the nose to subscribe to sports TV channels and grudgingly paid extra for the 'pop up' (we prefer to call them 'pay up') channels that show up when there's a really awesome sports event playing.

That's why we started OVO Mobile.

Because we believe that sport is about two things:
achieving greatness
sharing it with the fans
It's not about $$ - or at least it shouldn't be. The athletes, the drivers and the players want to share their successes with their fans - they want the fans to get amongst it.

So why can't fans watch what they want, when they want and where they want? Other companies say "You can't watch that you haven't paid for it." and they say "You want to watch a 45 minute car race on your mobile - you'll need heaps more data for that."

Well, we don't agree.

At OVO Mobile we believe that fans should come first. Our goal is to empower fans to connect with that they really love on their mobile or tablet.
