Foxtel launches app for fans to create sports montages

Foxtel has launched an All-Stars Highlights Reel App giving sports fans the chance to star in personalised sports montages.

The announcement:

Foxtel today announced an exciting new app designed to bring out sports fans’ inner all-star. The Foxtel All-Stars Highlights Reel App lets users take centre stage alongside some of their favourite sporting heroes in a personalised sports video montage.

The Foxtel All-stars Highlights Reel App allows users to blend profile pictures and home videos into an action packed FOX SPORTS reel complete with pre-set sound tracks and voiceovers. The app is supported by foxtelallstars.com.au, the online destination for football and netball fans, which features All-Stars Academy photo galleries, profiles on winners and a portal where fans can register their interest in the next round of the Tim Cahill and Liz Ellis Academies. Users may also upload their personal clips to the Foxtel All-Stars website to share with friends and family.

“Every weekend, all throughout Australia, thousands of kids can be found taking part in grassroots sport,” said Foxtel’s Executive Director of Sport, Ben Buckley. “These budding all-stars receive mountains of support from parents, friends and relatives in all corners of their communities. The Foxtel All-Stars Highlights Reel App lets them capture their special sporting moments, add a splash of FOX SPORTS shine and share them with these dedicated loved-ones.”

Former Australian Netball champion Liz Ellis said, “The All-Stars Highlights Reel App is a really great way for netball players of all ages to see themselves on the big stage in an ANZ Championship or Australian Netball Diamonds match. In just a couple of minutes you can produce your very own video montage that is worthy of All-Star status!”

The Foxtel All-stars Highlights Reel App features footage and themes from the Socceroos, A-League, Australian Diamonds and ANZ Championship. People can further personalise their content by choosing their favourite A-League or ANZ Championship team, input their local sports club, nickname and pictures and videos from their personal library.

The Foxtel All-stars Highlights Reel App is available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch or at www.itunes.com.au/appstore<http://www.itunes.com.au/appstore>.
