As the sports video industry moves through 2020, the business landscape has changed forever. Reflecting the shift in viewing habits, direct-to-consumer streaming, social media and over the top (OTT) video distribution services were already becoming the norm for leagues, federations, clubs and broadcasters alike. But with the COVID-19 lockdown forcing their hands, these same services are now essential for both viewers and the industry. But, with great opportunities, comes great challenges.
As such, the video content featured in the Sports OTT Forum online will look to answer some key questions:
- How can OTT, streaming and social media be used to keep sports viewers, fans and subscribers happy now, during the lockdown, and in the future?
- What sports video content is possible and works best, especially when there are no live events to cover? How can data be used effectively?
- How will the sports video industry handle the bottleneck of producing and distributing multiple live events after the virus pandemic has passed?
- What does the future hold for sports OTT, streaming and social media?
