Secret Golf are the latest organisation to go direct-to-consumer with pioneering Over-The-Top (OTT) solution which maximises revenue generation through fan viewership whilst ensuring fans have affordable access to the content they want to watch through their unique monetisation model.
As well as tutorials and behind-the-scenes content, fans will be able to get access to insights, interviews and exclusive content from more than 30 PGA, LPGA golfers and coaches. Fans will be able to go inside the ropes with stars such as PGA Tour star, Pat Perez, five-time PGA Tour winner, Jason Dufner, two-time LPGA winner Stacy Lewis and Former PGA Tour Champion and Secret Golf’s Founder and Chairman, Steve Elkington.
Secret Golf fans will also be able to access their weekly golf show and podcast which Steve Elkington presents with Inverness born presenter Diane Knox.
Founder and Chairman of Secret Golf, Steve Elkington, said: “We’re so excited to be part of Recast and to be able to show new and existing audiences unique, access-all- areas golf content from some of the biggest names in the business. Recast is great because we get to fill our Secret Golf Channel with raw, behind the scenes content - with access to players on the PGA Tour & LPGA Tour - whilst monetising the content effectively. If we monetise our content it means we have lots more resources to put back into making more content for our fans!”
Thanks to Recast’s OTT solution now being available in over 60+ countries (US and Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, the Middle East and North Africa as well as the UK) fans across the globe will have access to content, whilst rights holders, like Secret Golf, will be able to maximise their global reach, take advantage of untapped audiences and provide fans with access to quality content at the same time.
Commenting on the news Recast’s Founder and CEO, Andy Meikle, said: “Bringing Secret Golf and Recast together is a very exciting opportunity. With the access they have to the golfers they work with they’re able to produce top quality content. Secret Golf will be able to better monetise their content and in-turn produce further quality entertainment for viewers, ultimately bringing the sport of golf to life.”
Unlike other platforms, golf fans will be able to turn their viewership into Recast’s in-app credits simply by signing up, watching adverts, sharing videos and inviting friends. The in-app credits can then be used to watch their favourite match highlights, behind-the-scenes videos and interviews at a subsidised rate or even free of charge.
Recast is already working with several high-profile rights holders and bodies – including golf’s European Tour, Manchester City FC, Table Tennis England and most recently the European Cricket Network and Queens Park Rangers FC – each using its groundbreaking technology to help maximise their earning potential from highlights, in-play clips and live events.
