National Football League (NFL) franchise New York Jets have signed a new multi-year broadcast service agreement with sports broadcaster Skyview.  

According to an official press release, Skyview, which specialises in play-by-play broadcast systems, will provide the Jets with its F.A.S.T. Inventory Management System and Live Read Logging Service, which will “manage all aspects of radio avails, including on air mentions, and provide advertisers proof of performance to streamline the invoicing process.”  

The financial terms of Skyview’s deal with the Jets were not released.  

The Live Read Logging Service captures and catalogues the Jets’ on-air advertiser mentions, whilst the F.A.S.T. system is designed to accommodate all components of scheduling, reporting and invoicing of clients. 

“We are thrilled to expand our presence in the New York market with this established and iconic brand,” said Skyview Networks’ president Ken Thiele. “With our systems, the Jets will experience a flexible and time saving solution to play-by-play inventory management.  We strive to build a solid relationship with our partners and we look forward to collaborating on future play-by-play broadcast solutions for the franchise.”   

Jets senior vice president Marc Riccio said: “In light of the increased demand on our media inventory, it became apparent that the Skyview system was necessary to help manage our continued growth. Skyview’s expertise so far has proven to be just what we needed to expand our media business.”
