If Fox Sports CEO David Hill had any qualms about live streaming simulcasts with TV, it sounds like the Olympics took care of it. Hill told the Online Journal more actual games overall would dilute the product but simulcasting games on online “won’t in any way harm the telecast. The figures we saw out of the Olympics back that up. As long as you don’t get your affiliates up in arms, as long as you keep them happy I can’t see anything wrong with that.”
No comment on whether Fox would stream its NFL games or on the difference between simulcasting and the NBC Sports strategy of reserving major events for TV first.
