Sport on Broadband 2007: Video Rights, the Internet and IPTV
It’s 2008, but Sportcal.com’s recent report, Sport on Broadband 2007, published in the middle of last year, has lost none of its currency.
Covering all the latest news and developments, including rights deals that remain in place for years to come, the 325-page report proved its relevance at last week’s Digital Sport conference in Amsterdam, where many of the themes discussed during presentations and panel sessions mirrored those covered in Sport on Broadband.
A prize draw held at the conference, offering a free copy of the report worth $1,569, was won by Christian Karch, VP Sales / Marketing at Switzerland’s SkyPRO AG.
Here is what two senior sports industry executives who attended the Digital Sport conference said about the report:
Sport on Broadband is the most informative and comprehensive collection of data that exists on this fast-changing market. It is a ‘must-have’ for anyone who is trying to understand it or compete in it..
Doug Billman, Consultant and formerly Managing Director of PGA European Tour Productions and Senior VP of IMG Interactive
I found this report invaluable as a background to and an update on the very fast changing sports rights environment but one that will shape the future of all sports broadcasting.
Simon Brydon, founder of Cycling TV and VP of Jump TV
Broadband internet is growing fast, and the distribution of sports rights for the web has grown with it, especially since 2006. The number of people accessing high-speed internet has reached a level at which many believe that it is now viable for the sports industry to invest in the deployment of this (potential) new source of revenue.
