Sports Streaming Summit

Sports fans are among the most voracious video consumers, and they’re also the most demanding, expecting games and matches to be available anywhere, any time, and on any device. Streaming offers them more ways than ever to follow the teams and leagues they’re passionate about, as well as cutting-edge viewing experiences that traditional TV can’t match. And with the recent court ruling allowing sports betting, there will be more pressure than ever to deliver low-latency, interactive sports content. The new Sports Streaming Summit will explore how global broadcasters, local stations, and new media startups alike are changing how sport content is acquired, produced, delivered, and viewed, from little league to esports to the World Cup.
