Soccer streaming service NGSN has temporarily suspended service, and plans to become available again this summer.
NGSN (Next Generation Sports Network) temporarily shut down its service on Friday. According to NGSN, “In order to be ready for a fresh rebound in [the] summer, we have temporarily suspended our services.”
NGSN launched their streaming service in the United States in 2015 featuring streaming rights to several popular leagues including the Eredivisie, Argentina Primera Division and South American soccer leagues.
For fans of the Dutch Eredivisie soccer league, select games are still available via Spanish-language network Univision Deportes.
The complete list of rights that NGSN has includes Coppa Italia, home games for select Liga MX teams (Club América, Chivas de Guadalajara, Cruz Azul and Pumas), Eredivisie, Indian Super League, Argentina Primera Division, J-League, K-League, Portugal, Portuguese Cup, Swedish Allsvenskan Football League, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Russian Premier League, Russian Super Cup and the Venezuela league.
In an interview with NGSN CEO and President Harm Van Streun in 2015, the executive said “NGSN is a group of entrepreneurs, part Dutch part American. We went through the process of developing club apps in Holland for 2.5 years. We learned that was a great market, but we needed a bigger market to address [i.e. the USA].”
