    The US National Football League (NFL) and Tencent signed a deal on 21 August, which gives the Chinese internet giant exclusive rights to digitally stream games online in China for three years until 2019. Acquiring foreign sports rights is part of a wider content strategy to retain users or encourage users to spend more time with Tencent’s various platforms. As for NFL, China is an ideal market to benefit from the digitisation of sports viewing and expand NFL’s audience base as the Asian country has almost 1 billion online users.

    Facebook has revamped its video product with a new feature called ‘Watch’ that introduces TV-like original programming in order to incentivise consumers to spend more time on the platform and grow lucrative video advertising revenue. Facebook’s push into original, TV-like content is both an offensive strategy to attract TV ad budgets, but also comes as a defensive move following the push by Snapchat, YouTube, and other platforms to become premium video destination. Facebook has the opportunity to stand out for creators over other platforms by offering better analytics tools that help creators track and understand their audiences, anticipate audience demand and aid in the development of future content for well-defined niches.
