Yare Media Delivers Record Breaking UEFA 2016 Numbers in Austria

Yare Media Delivers Record Breaking UEFA 2016 Numbers in Austria

STEYR, Austria and VANCOUVER, July 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Yare Media Group Inc. announced today that the company witnessed record breaking
audience numbers this month delivering UEFA games to internet viewers throughout Austria.
 In conjunction with APA-IT, a subsidiary of the Austria Press Agency (APA). Yare streamed
40 matches during the course of the event, delivering more than 3 million viewing hours to
Austrian soccer fans.

All matches were delivered in HD quality with additional bitrate selections to
optimize fan experiences on PCs, mobile devices and tablets.  Peak viewing within Austria
topped 100,000 simultaneous viewers. The Austria versus Portugal and the final
Championship games each attracted over 250,000 viewers online.

"With a population of 8.5 million, we are delighted that so many Austrians elected to
view the UEFA tournament online.  Our previous highs were 35,000 concurrent during the
Olympics and 50,000 earlier this year during the Austrian presidential elections," said
Yare EU President Ing. Kurt Gatringer.  "We expected bigger numbers, but nothing
approaching a threefold increase over the last Winter Olympic audiences. We are clearly
witnessing a paradigm shift in the way fans want to see sports."

"UEFA 2016 was a milestone event for APA," stated Ing. Wolfgang Ptacek, Head of
Electronic Media, APA-IT. "The number of people watching over the internet was a marked
increase from previous events. The continuing market proliferation of internet connected
devices combined with increases in video quality have created a real alternative to
watching television."
