Mar 14, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

While original series tend to get most of the streaming-centered attention, it’s live sports that hold viewers attention and drive real-time engagement week after week. That’s why live TV streaming platforms are leading the charge and providing an even wider range of sports fans with personalized, new ways to watch their favorite games, highlights and athletes. Streaming opens up new opportunities to serve specific groups of fans, helps leagues, teams and athletes find and reach audiences in more direct ways, and opens avenues for greater breadth and diversity of stories to be told. This panel will explore how streamers, leagues, teams and individual athletes are navigating this new world of opportunity and enriching the viewing experience for fans well beyond the game.
