First set of the #FISTelemarkWorldCup 2015/16 has been staged in#Hintertux, Austria. Three days of thrilling racing has also premiered the new format of the Parallel Sprint. Changed rules offered more exciting duals and unpredictable outcomes.
For the second year now, the Tele Ho production streamed the events live on the internet. The full races are still available in the DVR mode. For the first time however, telemark skiing has hit the front pages of thewww.fis-ski.com with link to the live action.
The 3-day event has got some interesting coverage of all relevant events including the Opening Ceremony, all races and all Prize giving Ceremonies. Statistics showed huge increase of public.
More than 40.000 views with 22.000 unique users is the number exceeding the total views count of the full last year season. Users also watched the broadcast for longer time, just under 10 minutes per view (last season's average has been around 4 minutes).
Coverage did stretch also to the other media:
- TV: ORF, Servus TV, ZDF, ARD , RTVSLO and other published the stories
- Eurovision: promoted and offered the daily reports in exchange system
- Social media clips posted on various channels got good response, some of the clips received more than 20.000 views...
Last but not least: TeleHo's broadcast has been commented by two commentators - Jack Harvard Taylor and Andrew "Nobby" Clarke. We pioneered the way again, as our commentators sit in Bermuda & London, and the spectators could not notice that at all. Thank you for the great job!
See you on next events in La Plagne & Montchavin, France in January.
