S360 App: Internet Channel Premium Content Delivery". We call it Innovation at the Speed of Sport! I’s an app-driven premium Internet Content Delivery Channel. Think web channel instead of a web site! And it’s on 24 hours a day, connected to our fans no matter where they are on the Net. 

We send content messages to our opt-in readers scheduled throughout the day (they control how often). It appears on their browsers and mobile devices wherever they might be accessing the web. How it works: Each headline appears in the users browser window (Sport content of their choosing) within which are occasional ad messages - yours!

Fans hover over it and the full message drops down, containing any media from static image to live streaming video, links, info, coupons, news, etc… Headlines appear every time the fan refreshes a page or jumps to or opens a new page.

At 10 notifications per day on average, 30-days a month, impressions containing your ad messages can reach 1.5-2-million readers a month.
