Live sports are uniquely able to captivate consumers in the moment, no matter how viewers are tuning in. As streaming video quality and availability has caught up to consumer appetite, the industry is entering an era of unprecedented access to live streaming entertainment across many platforms and devices. With increasingly personalized and interactive experiences, streaming services are changing the notion of how fans watch live events.
