DraftKings acquires Vegas Sports Information Network

| By Robert Fletcher
Sports betting and daily fantasy sports operator DraftKings has completed the acquisition of US-facing multi-platform broadcast and content provider Vegas Sports Information Network (VSiN).

Financial terms of the purchase were not disclosed, but DraftKings said the deal would enable it to further enhance its content capabilities in the 14 US states where it operates.

Based in Las Vegas, Nevada, VSiN develops, produces, and distributes up to 18 hours of live linear sports betting content each day.

Original content from VSiN is accessible through its own 24-hour stream, as well as video and audio channels such as Comcast Xfinity, Sling TV, fuboTV, Rogers’ Sportsnet, MSG Networks, NESN, AT&T Pittsburgh and Marquee Sports Network.

VSiN also counts the likes of former National Football League (NFL) executive Michael Lombardi and former CBS and ESPN broadcaster Brent Musburger among its content contributors.
