fuboTV Strikes Deal With VSiN To Bring Sports Betting Content to Streaming Platform
fuboTV and VSiN (Vegas Stats & Information Network), the first media network dedicated to sports gambling information, announced a multi-year partnership to deliver dynamic content to the growing number of Americans who wager on sports.
“The rapid spread of legalized sports gambling since the recent Supreme Court ruling is likely to have a significant impact on the way fans across the country watch sports,” says Ben Grad, head of content strategy and acquisition, fuboTV. “As more and more Americans hunt for the news, analysis, and data that can help inform their sports wagering, we’re thrilled to give our subscribers, who are incredibly passionate about sports, access to VSiN’s unique Vegas-based point of view as well as its extensive network of experts.”
Available with fuboTV’s Sports Plus package, VSiN broadcasts more than 80 hours of live linear programming each week, including legendary sportscaster Brent Musburger’s “My Guys in the Desert,” which airs weekdays at 6 p.m. ET. All VSiN shows broadcast from a showcase studio in the busiest sports book in Las Vegas at the South Point Hotel Casino & Spa — the equivalent of CNBC being on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.
“As we work to break new ground in the media space, we’re excited to work with a true OTT industry innovator — a team that really understands what today’s consumer wants. fuboTV’s vision and commitment to sports and sports fans make the company a perfect partner for us,” says Brian Musburger, founder and chairman of VSiN. “This distribution partnership helps us meet a large and growing audience where they are and accelerates our path to becoming the only full broadcast network dedicated exclusively to sports gambling.”
VSiN is also announcing that its live video content will become part of its subscription packages in time for this year’s football season. Packages that include live and on-demand video, VSiN’s weekly digital magazine, Point Spread Weekly and specials like annual College and Pro Football Guides can be purchased at the VSiN website.
