NBC Sports Washington Predict The Game


Powering the first betting style broadcast of any of the four American major sports leagues, Telescope’s new PREDICTOR experience is setting the standard in how in-game sports betting can be integrated into live broadcasts.

The product launched as part of NBC Washington’s Predict the Game contest and will be featured throughout the Washington Wizards season.

Viewers can watch an alternate broadcast and engage in a simulated betting experience to guess what will happen next in the live game for the chance to win $500.

“We are encouraged by the early engagement data. We had close to 4,000 responses. Fans who participated in Predict the Game spent
significantly more time on our digital platforms than regular users.”
