NESN builds betting-inclined database and revenues through fan engagement


As one of the most prominent sports networks in the US, NESN wanted to tap into its existing base of passionate supporters and attract more New England sports fans to build its database and increase revenue.

With Chalkline, NESN was able to achieve these goals.

Within two weeks of partnering with Chalkline, NESN launched its freeplay games platform (NESN Games), featuring live odds and contests.
