Q: What business achievement are you most proud of?

A: We are immensely proud of the work the team has done since our initial Beta testing last year in order to launch the app just in time for the 2016 football season.

Our due diligence, development and market research over the past year alone has ensured WinView Games is a cutting edge technology and concept America’s sports fans have been missing out on, while the live-synced ‘in-game’ competition concept has scaled to a huge business in other countries, particularly in Europe.

It’s gratifying to see this transformation of the TV fans relationship with the TV experience we invented and pioneered, many years ago has finally seen the required technology reach the market to fully support it.
