Sportsfix – a new OTT subscription streaming service owned by SF Media Holdings, a subsidiary of Total Sports Asia (TSA) – has appointed Carl Kirchhoff as its CEO. Kirchhoff was the co-founder of EverSport, the online streaming company sold earlier this year, and TSA bills itself as “Asia’s global leader in sports content”. Sportsfix launched in Malaysia in July this year as a web-based platform, and Kirchhoff worked as a consultant to help build the platform. His appointment coincides with the launch of Sportsfix’s paid service this month. Sportsfix also plans to launch in Indonesia and Thailand early in 2018, and negotiations are under way. In August, Sportsfix announced funding from the Australian investment group, IPO Wealth.
