Taking full advantage of new and emerging digital platforms, Fox Sports said it will “quadcast” daily show, Outkick the Show, by streaming it simultaneously on Facebook, Perisope, YouTube and the Fox Sports GO app, all without requiring viewers to have a pay TV subscription.
Outkick the Show, hosted by Fox Sports College Football Insider Clay Travis, is offered live each weekday at noon ET, and features his take on the day’s sports headlines, interviews and Q&A with viewers. Following those live broadcasts, the show, an extension of Travis’s Outkick the Coverage blog, can also be downloaded for free as a podcast via iTunes.
In a one-man-band type of setup, Travis streams the show using three iPhone 6s and an iPad Mini attached to a modified tripod. That approach, Fox Sports said, will enable Travis to take Outkick the Show’ on the road to “several major sporting events” in 2016.
“At one point you needed a physical radio station with a large antenna to speak to the masses,” Travis said in a statement. “Now you don't. All I need to reach the masses is a Wi-Fi signal. Basically I want to make consuming ‘Outkick the Show’ as fun and easy as possible. And I think this is the answer. If you have a Wi-Fi connection or a phone, you'll have access to ‘Outkick the Show.’”
