One of the content categories that we believe is best suited for Crowdsurfing’s unique audience visualization capabilities is live-streamed sports. Not only are sporting events a “must see live” experience, but they also are experiences that people enjoy watching together — whether it’s cheering on the same team, talking smack with rival fans, debating coaching decisions or analyzing player performances. LiveOne has been developing features within Crowdsurfing to facilitate all of these types of interactions, so we’re looking forward to getting feedback from fans, media partners and global consumer brand partners — both as it relates to existing functionality but also for new features that you’d like to see us add going forward. We’re here to serve you!
So stay tuned for news from LiveOne as we announce new sports-related partnerships for Crowdsurfing in the weeks and months ahead. With the amount of live content already being created — from MLB’s nearly 7,000 webcast games to ESPN’s 4,000+ live online events each year to the current NCAA basketball tournament streams — the world of live-streamed sports is exploding, but we think the best is still yet to come.
