Watching Sport Online: Better than TV?

Mon 13th May 2013 | Television & Broadcasting

After winning the 2012 ‘Best Webcasting Platform’ award last year, StreamUK plans to attend this year’s Streaming Media Forum with a slightly different focus; exploring online video’s role in football and displaying how StreamUK and its partners are working on enhancing the viewer experience for the new season ahead.

This year, StreamUK’s CEO Duncan Burbidge will moderate ‘Watching Sport Online: Better than TV?’, a session on the second day of the 2013 Streaming Forum (19th June) – which has already been tipped as one of the ‘must see’ sessions by the Streaming Media Global Chairman, Eric Schumacher.

Joined by an influential panel including; Simon Banoub, Marketing Director, Opta Sports, Howard Kitto, GroupCTO , Perform Group and Simon Nixon, Client Services Director for Aqueduct, the panel will discuss and debate the important role of data and viewer interaction to create truly immersive fan experiences.

Asked about the decision to choose the subject for this year’s session, Duncan Burbidge replied, “I’m discussing what it means to make online video preferred to traditional television. Although the boundaries are already blurred, the question brings into focus how additional information should be presented to the user.”

StreamUK will also be attending the event as award nominees in several categories. To vote for a StreamUK product or service, please click here.
