By Community | October 18, 2017

BT is launching a competition aimed at entrepreneurs and start-ups to find new ideas to help BT Sport develop fan media engagement and bringing viewers closer to the action.

The winning idea in the BT Infinity Lab competition will be trialled by BT Sport and could partner with BT on ideas, original technology and improving the TV viewing experience for the public.

This is the second time BT Sport has run the BT Infinity Lab competition.

The last winners, Seenit, based in London, now contribute to the production of BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight show.

For this competition, the winner will again have the support of BT Innovation teams and BT Sport to trial their successful technology or service with BT and also receive six months membership at TechHub with access to their workspace and events.

Entries are encouraged to focus on disrupting traditional broadcast approaches, including capturing the in-venue experience, use of data and new technologies such as VR.

The deadline for entries is midday on Monday 13 November 2017.
