The landmark agreement now enables crowdsourcing of sports and major events content,such as videos, photos and social media, to be shown live on xTV to enable viewers to watch TV through the eyes of people on the ground; augmenting,and in many cases,eliminating,the need for traditional broadcast video.
"Seeing sports and major events through the eyes of the people physically attending is a simple yet radical concept which is great on a picture by picture basis,"said Joe Ward, CEO of xTV."However, seeing the hottest event pictures and video in an organized interactive viewing experience in realtime is a game-changing capability."
