Anthem Sports & Entertainment Partner with SportsGuru to Feature Fan Videos Across Digital and TV
SportsGuru Videos Will Be Featured on FNTSY Sports Network and Fight Network
NEW YORK, N.Y. – December ---, 2016 – SportsGuru, the first fan-powered sports video platform, is partnering with Anthem Sports & Entertainment Corp., a leading global sports media company, to feature fan-created videos from SportsGuru across Anthem’s Fantasy Sports Network (FNTSY) and Fight Network video properties.
The SportsGuru iOS app allows fans to record short videos of themselves giving opinions and analysis on sports. The app automatically adds professional graphics to the videos to give them the look of a real sports talk show, yet with no editing required by the user. The videos can be viewed on the SportsGuru app, across social media and through SportsGuru’s syndication partners.
FNTSY Sports Network is the first specialty video network dedicated to news, advice and analysis of all fantasy sports. Featured on its daily show Game Time Decisions, the “Who Ruined Your Sunday?” SportGuru segment highlights several viewer-created videos on air and across FNTSY’s digital properties. Whenever a fan records a video rant on SportsGuru with #WhoRuinedYourSunday in the title, the video is instantly added to a feed that is easily accessed by FNTSY’s producers and editors for inclusion on live shows.
Fight Network is the world’s premier combat sports network dedicated to coverage of fights, fighters, fight news and the fight lifestyle. Fight Network will utilize SportsGuru technology allowing fans to ask questions and make comments on Fight Network shows about upcoming and recent mixed martial arts events.
“Broadcasters, publishers, and brands constantly look for ways to better engage with their target audiences. SportsGuru’s combination of user-friendly video capture technology, a community of highly-engaged sports fans and great video content that can be tailored for our partners in different ways, makes it an ideal fan-engagement solution,” SportsGuru founder and CEO Ken Zamkow said. “We are very excited about this partnership to have our community make video programming more interactive on FNTSY Sports Network and Fight Network.”
“SportsGuru is the perfect way to actively involve our viewers and fans, who are the greatest part of our networks and really help bring them to life,” FNTSY Director of Programming Nando Di Fino said. “SportsGuru has been a tremendous addition. We started working together on FNTSY and both sides quickly realized the technology was also a perfect fit for Fight.”
