Paramount ANZ will play the “A-Leagues All Access” documentary across multiple platforms when it premieres on Thursday, Oct. 13.
The documentary series will go live at 7:30 p.m. (AEDT) on its broadcast video on demand (BVOD) platform 10 Play, as well as KeepUp.com.au, the Keep Up app and YouTube.
From there, each episode will be available on Paramount’s subscription video offering, Paramount Plus.
In addition, “A-Leagues All Access” will play at 2:00 p.m. (AEDT) on digital TV channel 10 Bold as an appetiser before the evening’s Isuzu Ute A-League match.
The first episode focuses on Melbourne Victory marquee player Luis Nani, including scenes from Victory’s 3-2 defeat of Sydney FC last weekend.
Each subsequent episode focuses on one of the A-League stars, and will be turned around within days for its broadcast.
The series will feature Brisbane Roar’s Charlie Austin, Melbourne City coach Patrick Kisnorbo and rising Socceroos and Central Coast Mariners star Garang Kuol.
During the season break for the FIFA 2022 World Cup, Liberty A-League stars will take centre stage, including Western United and Comm Bank Matildas’ Chloe Logarzo, Melbourne Victory’s Kayla Morrison and Melbourne City and Matildas’ goalkeeper Melissa Babieri.
In Australia, Paramount owns both Network 10 and the Paramount Plus streaming service. The company has increasingly been chasing sporting broadcast rights and was in the running to secure the lucrative AFL deal, however was ultimately beaten by the incumbent Seven Network.
