On Sunday, February 1, millions of viewers will tune in to enjoy the Super Bowl and the surrounding interviews, reports, highlights and analysis. As you know, more and more of that video content is going online.
For example, NBCUniversal has announced that it will offer “Super Stream Sunday,” live-streaming 11 continuous hours of content related to the Super Bowl. And, many fans of the Seattle Seahawks are already familiar with the team’s popular Ustream channel, which boasts more than 3,000 subscribers and over 1.2 million views. What they may not know is that the Seahawks organization also uses Ustream for internal communications and live-streaming press conferences.
Another client unrelated to football for most of the season, uses their Ustream channel to broadcast football practice sessions for their ‘athletes.’ Yes, for those who prefer their running backs with four legs, Animal Planet will be live-streaming pre-game practice for the Puppy Bowl at http://www.apl.tv/puppy-bowl.htm starting Friday. In this annual favorite, puppies of all breeds take to a miniature field to “play in a winning combination of terrier tackles, touchdowns, puppy penalties, fumbles and Fido first downs.”
What will you be streaming on Super Bowl Sunday?
