broadcast of the Sampras-Courier match is yet another compelling way our
socialcasting platform is taking live webcasting to new levels. The layers of
interactivity our platform provides to enable viewers not only to watch, but to
interact with each other during the broadcast, truly presents a new type of
‘virtual living room’ where people can gather to enjoy all types of live
programming, including sporting events,” said Joel Smernoff, President and
COO of Paltalk. “Online video viewing is rapidly changing, and we see it
becoming more and more interactive as new technology presents compelling ways
to experience traditional broadcast programming. Many professional sports with
devoted fan bases are looking for more opportunities to bring events to
viewers, opportunities that network television is not offering them. Paltalk
presents a viable option for sports like tennis, hockey and other
professional-level leagues to engage both existing and new fans in a unique
community environment.”
