With the Super Bowl right around the corner, new audio broadcasting app Colorcast has taken steps to make the game more exciting for its listeners. The app has launched a new “game syncing” feature and has partnered with former Kansas City Chiefs running back Dexter McCluster to commentate on the big game.
Colorcast’s proprietary syncing technology allows listeners to pair their audio streams with the Caster’s stream so that there are no spoilers during the game. Syncing changes the way people can engage with one another during live TV broadcasts. Casters’ reactions make sense and their yelling “touchdown” is timely.
“We created Colorcast so that anyone with an opinion about what they’re watching can share it in real-time and in context,” said Colorcast Co-Founder and CEO, Evan Kirkham. “The Super Bowl is football’s biggest night and we wanted to partner with a dynamite player that knows the game, knows the teams, and can make it interesting and entertaining for listeners.”
With a high energy, high entertainment quality game like the Super Bowl, Colorcast wanted to partner with someone that not only knows and loves the game but can add a little spice to the commentary. McCluster was the obvious choice and one that hit close to home for Kirkham, as he and McCluster hail from the same alma mater, the University of Mississippi.
“We’ve all got something to say when watching live sports, especially the Super Bowl,” said McCluster. “Whether it’s the players, the coaches, the broadcasters, or the commercials, so why not share those thoughts in real-time? I’m excited to join Colorcast for the Super Bowl and be the commentator for once.”
Colorcast is the first of its kind audio-only broadcasting app that allows anyone with a smartphone and a hint of wit to share their opinions, their analysis, and their emotions in real-time. All you have to do is download Colorcast, click the event that matches what you’re watching on TV, and you’re ready to go. Whether you’re a talker or more of a listener, you don’t have to be glued to your phone to enjoy Colorcast. You can minimize the app, continue scrolling through your social feeds, text your friends, or lose your phone in the couch cushions – you’ll still be producing or immersed in quality audio-content.
With Colorcast, live TV will never be the same.
