SUNRISE, Fla. – The Florida Panthers are enhancing the in-game fan experience at BB&T Center as the first NHL team to debut ProWire’s NHL mobile app integration, featuring ProWire’s cutting-edge audio broadcast technology.

With ProWire’s official NHL mobile app integration, fans attending Panthers home games at BB&T Center will be able to stream Bally Sports Florida’s live in-game commentary and exclusive play-by-play action on their phones, right from their seats, via the Florida Panthers club page on the NHL app. To listen live, Panthers fans can simply connect to the BBT-FREE Wifi using an iOS device and click on the app’s ‘Listen Live From Your Seat’ feature.

ProWire’s patent-pending CrowdFlexTM streaming technology enables venues with existing WiFi or 5G networks to stream real-time audio directly to fans’ phones with no delay. Through ProWire’s official NHL mobile app integration, additional partner teams will be able to activate the audio streaming service through their respective club pages along with their other fan engagement activations.

“As we continue to invest in the fan experience, we’re thrilled to offer fans this exciting new way to engage with the game. Now fans can listen in real-time as the action unfolds in front of them,” said Panthers Chief Strategy Officer Sam Doerr. “Through the seamless integration of ProWire’s high-quality, real-time streaming technology, fans can easily tune into Bally Sports Florida Play-by-Play announcers Steve Goldstein and Randy Moller’s live action commentary from their seats with just the click of a button. We look forward to working with ProWire to develop additional Panthers’ exclusive channels featuring special guest commentary, live interviews and more original content for our fans at BB&T.”

“The NHL App is the go-to resource for fans attending hockey games and the club pages serve as the fan engagement app for the majority of the league,” said Gordon Sumner, Co-Founder & CEO of ProWire. “The activation through the Panthers club page will enhance the in-game experience for Panthers’ fans at BB&T, bringing them closer to the action. Looking forward, our
focus will be working with the Panthers to generate new and exciting original content for fans at BB&T.”
