FanDuel Tv’s Breeders’ Cup Coverage
It was the 39th Breeders’ Cup World Championship on Saturday November 5th in Keeneland and definitely one that you could not miss. Luckily FanDuel, an avid supporter of the sport of horseracing, covered it all!
The company has recently launched a new cable network, FanDuel TV. The switch from TVG to FanDuel TV was an excellent move for the company. Kevin Grigsby, the senior vice president of TV at FanDuel and executive content producer of FanDuel’s pair of TV ventures, explains, “As sports betting legalizes within the US, in combination with the performance of our #1 sportsbook, attaching the FanDuel brand to our television network and OTT platform (FanDuel+) made a ton of sense.” According to the Grigsby, their “on-air talent roster is the best in the world at showcasing racing on a daily basis.” He mentions, “Additionally, bringing the audience into the speed of the sport is a daily execution that we’ve integrated into our broadcasts: cameras on the actual jockeys, utilization of drones and cable cameras that travel at 40mph are all being used on a daily basis.” Grigsby shows how FanDuel TV network is really taking the next step to enhance the viewing experience of its consumers to make sure you have the best watching and betting experience possible.
