In 2015, the NFL streamed an entire football game over the internet. As the first live sports event to be streamed to a worldwide audience, this was quite a feat. Over the last few years, over-the-top (OTT) technologies and services have evolved immensely to where streaming of live sports is now nearly on an equal competitive ground with traditional broadcasts.Here at Harmonic, we think the next step in elevating the streaming experience of live sports is UHD HDR. With sports content, video quality is critical. Viewers want to see that winning soccer goal or three-point basketball shot in crystal-clear clarity. It makes them feel like they are part of the game. By vastly improving the video quality of live streaming, service providers can open up new revenue streams and meet the growing demand for live sports content.

And it now is introducing ‘suggested posts’ to users’ feeds, sorted by topics a profile states they are interested in – potentially putting these ahead of photos and videos shared by profiles they actually follow. Directly mimicking TikTok, this seems to diverge very little in practice from hashtags, which are its original discovery feature. Instead, it seems to want to emulate the usability which younger users are familiar with from TikTok, in order to entice them to increase their Instagram engagement.
