India-New Zealand Series
Sportzworkz first off the blocks, yet again.
In a first of its kind, Sportzworkz is now the first Indian agency to provide sports news clips. Begining the 20th of February earlier this year, Sportzworkz freezed deals with various news & sports channels based in India to cover India's tour of New Zealand.
ZEE News, Times NOW, News 24, ESPN STAR Sports, ZEE Sports and TEN Sports are amongst others who have signed up with Sportzworkz for this news feed.
Says Vishal Arora, Managing Director - Sportzworkz, "In these times of recession, the pressure on cost saving on all channels is huge. They find this arrangement to be perfect and we are able to provide the feeds on the scales of economy."
Sportzworkz has been providing the news content off an FTP server that caters individually to the different channels and also provides the channels with the option of getting that something extra and exclusively, for a very small revenue upside.
" It has worked very well for us so far. It’s a strong cost effective solution that provides us with good news angles and features both quickly and economically",
says Peter Hutton, SVP TAJ TV.
Hector Kenneth - News Editor at TIMES NOW News says, "The best thing about our FTP server is that the news is current and we can put it on air quickly. So we don't end up losing valuable time,which is so essential in the news business".
In an effort to capture the market, Sportzworkz would be extending its facilities to both international and domestic broadcasters for the Indian Premier League and T20 World Cup in the United Kingdom. "We are a young company and hoping to expand by providing value editions at a never before price to our clients. I am hoping that we become the premier cricket and Indian sports news provider in the times to come", says a Vishal.
