Indonesian video-streaming app Vidio is in the middle of a crucial three-week period. Bali is hosting three back-to-back international badminton tournaments, including the prestigious Indonesia Open and the season-ending World Tour Finals, from 16 November to 5 December. And badminton-crazy Indonesians who can’t make it to the island to watch the world’s best shuttlers on court can stream the matches live on Vidio.

The seven-year-old platform, owned by Indonesian television network Surya Citra Media (SCM), has positioned itself as the destination to watch sports online in the country. Apart from badminton, it’s the official streaming partner of sports properties like Champions League football, Formula One, NBA, and the Olympics.
