Story Highlights

The first free, round-the-clock, sports-betting network in the U.S. is officially on its way. Sports-data provider Sportradar and sports-betting/daily fantasy programmer SportsGrid have announced a partnership to launch a free, 24-hour network dedicated to the sports betting audience. The partnership marries Sportradar's ad tech, OTT technology and data with SportsGrid's original programming featuring coverage and analysis of stats and odds across professional sports.

Last May, the U.S. Supreme Court lifted the federal ban on sports gambling, giving states the go-ahead to allow betting on sports. Since then, legal sportsbooks have opened in more than a half dozen states with several more states expected to legalize sports-betting in the near future. The new SportRadar/SportsGrid gambling network will look to take advantage of this growing momentum behind legalized sports betting. The new 24-hour network will join VSiN (Vegas Stats & Information Network), which launched in 2017, in this burgeoning market of sports-betting networks.

Sportradar is the official data partner of the NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB, NASCAR, FIFA and UEFA, monitoring, analyzing and delivering insights from more than 400,000 matches annually across 60 sports. The new partnership will incorporate Sportradar's release of ad:s, a service that provides bookmakers with marketing solutions aimed at eliminating waste and streamlining their marketing spend. This new offering will allow bookmakers and brands looking to reach the betting community, a native opportunity to do so through sponsorship of programming as well as targeted ad spends across video & audio inventory.

Sportradar is always looking to enhance the fan experience through the use of data and technology, says Jason Sukhraj, SVP US Advertising and OTT, Sportradar. Collaborating with the SportsGrid executive team provides us with the platform to mesh our core competencies around betting with their programming talent and address the increasing demand for information and content geared around sports gaming.

Launched in 2017, SportsGrid is the first, free 24 hour audio and video sports wagering network. It's network can be listened or viewed on Amazon Fire TV, AppleTV, Pluto TV, Xumo, Xbox, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, Stitcher, and others. It owns industry leading subscription properties DailyRoto and RotoExperts, in addition to the FNTSY Sports Network. SportsGrid is an official partner of the NBA, FanDuel, The Elvis Duran Group, and other industry leaders.

SportsGrid President Louis M. Maione adds, The integration of Sportradar data and technology into our content is game changing for our free twenty-four hour audio and video gambling network. This partnership showcases our combined vision of delivering the true convergence of content, data, and gaming to the millions of sports fans craving this informative and entertaining programming. Joining forces with Sportradar instantly affords SportsGrid with the ability to provide unquestionable best of breed sports wagering programming. Additionally, Sportradar's delivery of a robust video solution ensures our content is placed where fans want to consume it, stamping our foothold as a market leader in the space.
