Company / App Name: Fandio
What does it do?
Fandio allows users to create and listen to live, interactive, real-time discussions for televised sports.
Why do we need it?
Sports broadcasting has remained largely unchanged for decades, with commentating comprising of a bland, boring, one-to-many relationship appealing to the lowest common denominator of fans.
Who is it for?
Fandio is for sports fans who want to interact with friends and other fans during a game instead of passively listening to the commentary provided by the TV networks.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
Fandio is the only platform for alternative commentary that is truly interactive. Listeners can also take part in text chat discussions and even “call-in” through our site to take part in the discussion.
Our beta just launched this past weekend. In the next few weeks we will continue to have broadcasts to test to make sure everything scales properly, followed by our full scale launch.
