Q&A: Luke Boyle on streaming success

Ahead of the SportsPro OTT Summit last month, Magine Pro’s CCO, Luke Boyle sat down with SportsPro Media to offer his thoughts on streaming success.

In the Q&A, Luke discusses among other things the hurdles still to cross before digital overtakes linear distribution, and the lessons Sport can take from other genres in regards to commercialising OTT services. Luke also talks about the challenges of dealing with scale – a hot topic for fast-growing video services.

 

“Don’t overcomplicate the deliverables. The absolute essential for all OTT platforms is the quality of the stream, and ease to navigate to viewing experiences for the end-user.” – Luke Boyle.
