LiveHive Systems Bring their Enhanced TV Solution to Fantasy Sports Sites
With NanoGaming™, fans can play along with their favorite teams, live!
WATERLOO, ONTARIO—October 12, 2006—LiveHive Systems Inc., developer of the sophisticated Enhanced TV (ETV) solution, NanoGaming, today announced that it is now available for the Fantasy Sports industry.
NanoGaming is a real-time interactive entertainment solution that gives viewers what they want—a new way to play along with their favorite sporting event or TV show. Sports fans and Fantasy players in particular, have a huge emotional investment riding on the outcome of each game. LiveHive has developed a way to further enhance their viewing experience by offering them a unique new way to anticipate what will happen next—not just at the end of the game, but throughout the entire event! ”Will the Green Bay Packers score a touch down on their next drive?” NanoGaming gives you literally hundreds of opportunities to play during a game. This kind of action keeps fans glued to the Fantasy site during a live event, in addition to the before and after traffic they typically receive.
With NanoGaming, Fantasy Sports sites, Broadcasters and WebTV portals have the ability to easily bring ETV solutions to their audience members, providing them with a powerful forum for interacting with their favorite TV programs, as well as with other fans. Players can accumulate points and win prizes based on how well they predict what will happen next. The ability to interact and compete with others creates an extensive social network of fans. Increased online traffic and dedicated viewership directly translate into earnings as advertising space becomes more valuable. Plus, NanoGaming is the only ETV solution that instantly updates the results after every NanoEvent™, giving viewers instant gratification, as well as detailed personal statistics.
To date, NanoGaming has been very successful with both live sporting events and Reality TV. LiveHive’s Speed of Sport site (www.speedofsport.com) has hosted NanoGamers on every nationally-televised NFL game of the 2006 season. And earlier this year, LiveHive’s Bet-On-Survivor contest had thousands of users register to play along with the popular TV program. With more sports and reality TV shows continuously being added, the popularity of NanoGaming is expected to skyrocket.
“Enhanced TV solutions are about to explode onto the scene,” notes Bullock. “We built our NanoGaming solutions to be extremely scalable, and the potential applications are limitless!”
