NOTE: The Scorebird score overlay is only available for mobile streams.

The Scorebird device connects to the scoreboard at the facility and automatically tracks the score and period of the game. It saves time and creates a smooth experience for viewers, similar to watching a network TV Sports event.

The device consists of the Scorebird Nest and the digital widget. The Nest is placed in the Score Board at the facility and transfers information to the widget. The device can be added upon creating or editing a stream only before the streaming starts.

To set up the Scorebird device for the broadcast overlay, use the Livestream form to enter the facility's 5-digit Network Scoring Transmitter Number (NeST). The number is on the back of the NeST or the Scorebird’s admin app. This generates and automatically populates a broadcast overlay in the streaming.

Admin or streaming permission is required to unlink a Scorebird device.

How to Unlink the Scorebird Device

  1. Tap Streams to navigate to the Schedule tab.

  2. Select the desired team or tournament using the dropdown at the top of the screen.

  3. Locate and tap the desired stream.

  4. Tap Edit.

  5. Remove the Scorebird Device Number.

  6. Tap Save.
