Quote Of The Day

But you do want to take advantage of a teaching moment to preface something for new fans that longtime fans might already know. … A problem we’ve run into is that people aren’t used to a television component, so that the team scores are slow or don’t tell the viewer how many events have been completed. We want viewers to tune in at any point and know what is going on right away.”
