SVG On Demand: NBC Sports’ Matt Celli on the Value of Bringing Esports to Traditional Television

What the media giant has learned as it dabbles in esports

NBC Sports is one of the traditional sports-media players that have dipped a toe in esports waters, producing some big-time events, including Universal Open Rocket League (Season 2) this past summer.

At our inaugural Esports Production Forum, Matt Celli, head of production technology, innovation and data, NBC Sports and Olympics, chats with our Jason Dachman to share how the company has dedicated resources across the board — from NBCSN to its regional sports networks — and what they’ve learned along the way.
