Eir Sport (previously Setanta)

We recently launched (January 2016), picking up the web development work in line with provided designs.

Notable features:

  • High profile sports web broadcaster website in Ireland with a high volume of daily traffic
  • Powered using our very own in-house built CMS platform for easy online content editing and image manipulation by staff, fine tuned for high performance
  • Used daily by 12 staff contributors including freelance journalists, posting at least 10 stories per day (4,000+ per year) on all the latest sport news
  • Cross referencing and content specific content based on sport and channel
  • API integrations including Facebook (auto-post), Twitter, Grabyo video service, and Google Drive integration for pulling in fixture lists
  • TV Guide widget showing all 6 channels, produced in-house and tying in with the 3rd party EPG data
  • Mobile friendly, country specific content
  • We provide dedicated support and development including hosting, which involves 4 servers with load balancing

Update: Setanta was taken over by Eir in April this year and is now Eir Sport. We were involved heavily in the rebranding of the website and integrating the existing subscription process with Eir, bridging two platforms together to offer a path for existing Eir broadband customers to get a (currently) free service. This was performed under tight deadlines to meet TV advertising and launch schedules.
