"NeuLion makes it possible for us to offer soccer fans live streaming access to the Gold Cup on any device," said Juan Carlos Rodriguez, president of Univision Deportes. "Not only are we delivering a personalized experience for all of our fans, but we are also doing dynamic ad insertion into the live streams on mobile devices for the first time."
