Rockville, MD (PRWEB) December 30, 2011
CableFAX has scheduled a webinar on Wednesday, January 18, 2012, to help uncover new revenue opportunities emerging from cable sports content.
Monetizing Sports Content: The Next Big Thing will outline for attendees, strategies on how to profit from sports content. Sports content remains the most valuable commodity in the cable universe, especially in a world where "time-shifting" and "over-the-top" threatens traditional business models. Unlike many other forms of content, sports emphasizes live viewing and big screens that result in increased value for advertisers seeking rapt audience attention, a multitude of revenue possibilities from mobile and online channels, and expanding audience engagement opportunities.
The sports content marketplace can be lucrative but is not without challenges. The rise in associated programming costs including rights fees has programmers and distributors scrambling to formulate strategies for additional revenue streams, which can help alleviate controversial subscription rate hikes often blamed on the sports genre.
This 90–minute webinar provides tips on how your organization can profit from cable sports content through insight on what's next for this dynamic content area. Join us to gain valuable perspectives on:
- Previously untapped opportunities such as hyper-regional and high school sports content.
- New ways to monetize sports through authentication/TV Everywhere.
- Ideas for how to take fans to the next level on mobile platforms.
- Ways that sports network and distributors can work together to maximize sports revenue.
- What advertisers want and how to give it to them.
- And much, much more.
Addressing attendees will be Lee H. Berke, President & CEO of LHB Sports, Entertainment & Media, Inc.
Following the presentation will be an interactive 10-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
