DMV Media... Live broadcasts of Mystics games delivered free to mobile devices


In what could be considered a clear sign of what's to come in sports media, the folks at Monumental Network are providing a live stream of Mystics WNBA games. Currently the mobile app, Mystics Live, is fully supported by Apple iOS phones and tablets.

Could this trend prove to eliminate a significant source of revenue for broadcast companies?

The app reportedly offers viewers six camera angles, instant replays and team stats. It is available on devices within a 75-mile radius of DC. For more, check out this June 16, 2014 announcement from Monumental Network.
