Fanseat is an Internet streaming service specializing in live sports broadcasts, established in 2015. Early on, it served as an online extension of Fanseat 1 and 2 (later Fanseat 1 to 4), basic tier television channels available to customers of Finnish telecommunications provider Elisa.[2] In 2017, the Fanseat channels were renamed and merged into a new 8-channel premium tier called Elisa Viihde Sport. The online version of Fanseat remained its own brand, and was refocused on foreign markets.[3]
In 2019, the platform was acquired by Spring Media, a Swedish sports marketing agency.[1] Fanseat's managing director is Jean-Maël Gineste, a former sales director at Eurosport.[1]

Fanseat mostly caters to small-market sports leagues, but has also held out-of-market rights to some internationally recognized properties. Most events are available through a monthly subscription, with select programming being offered on pay-per-view basis.[4]

Fanseat can be viewed via web browsers on PC and Mac, as well as apps on Apple iOS and Android devices.
