How viewer-starved sports networks are filling the coronavirus void

  • Axios
  • 1 month ago
  • Virtual competitions, reruns of classic games and, most recently, sports documentaries are filling a void for both TV networks and fans during the coronavirus pandemic.
  • All the substitute programming in the world isn't going to make up for a loss of live sports.
  • In the past 90 days, each of the top nine cable sports networks has lost more than 25% of its audience compared to January, per data from Samba TV.
  • Without live sports, networks have had to get creative to fill their airwaves. Some experiments have worked (CBS' Masters rewind drew 2.2 million viewers), some started off strong but have since lost steam (virtual racing) and others have failed (ESPN's HORSE challenge drew just 686,000 viewers).

Microsoft's Game Stack chief on "The next generation of games and game development"

  • VentureBeat
  • 3 months ago
  • In 2018, Microsoft bought PlayFab, a company founded to provide cloud-based tools and services for game developers, offloading the server infrastructure grunt work so developers could focus on games, integrated it into its Azure cloud services and renamed it Microsoft Game Stack.
  • James Gwertzman, now serves as general manager of Microsoft Game Stack, which continues to simplify cloud gaming services for developers, and he shared some of that knowledge in a recent press dinner in San Francisco
  • The discussion was about ideas that were close to Gwertzman’s expertise like live services, where the game developer’s role is more like nightclub impresario, as well as expansive ideas about games such as how to reach the 2.8 billion people in the world who have played a game before.
  • The main topics discussed were: Ways the games changed the modern era; Problems with discoverability; Microsoft's goals and future plans in gaming; The role of a game developer; 5G gaming; AI in gaming; Fighting toxicity in games; Developing games for the next generation machines; Making next generation art.
