Sports Broadcasting Redefined?

In the second episode of our Future of Sport Podcast, JJ Shaw is joined by Andy Meikle (CEO and Founder) and Rob Zeko (Chief Commercial Officer) from ‘Recast’ - the revolutionary OTT sports video platform that rewards fans for content engagement by crediting them with in-app currency.

We look into the changing nature of the traditional sports broadcasting model as our guests delve into how consumer payment patterns are changing and how this has allowed Recast’s “micro-transactions” business model to flourish and ensure that rights holders get a fair share of the benefit.

We also discuss current innovations in sports media (including AI-powered sports highlights, cloud-based production services and data analytics on performance); and Andy provides some top tips for entrepreneurs who are considering starting a business in sports media.
