THE CONTENT FACTORY has acquired GAME TIME DECISIONS INC., an online and software company that powers a fantasy football resource site and a number of fantasy game products. GAME TIME DECISIONS will manage and distribute the fantasy games.
THE CONTENT FACTORY intent is to use the brand and intelligence of the new alliance with PRO FOOTBALL WEEKLY to provide additional resources that will make fantasy GAMETIMEDECISIONS.NET the most robust fantasy football site online. Content Factory CEO JIMMY DE CASTRO is close to introducing a new fantasy football game, "Weekly Pick Five will be introduced later this month on danpatrick.com, online, on-the-air and into mobile by THE CONTENT FACTORY.
"Weekly Pick Five" (WPF) is a fantasy football game that can be played once a week or every week. "Fantasy has brought so much excitement to Football fans, we think that a weekly game that is mass appeal for every level of Fantasy interest will catch on with friends, teams, offices and more," said DE CASTRO. "Its simplicity and opportunity to win prizes will be fun for everyone!"
"Fantasy sports are a $4 billion industry and player participation grows almost 10 percent a year," adds CONTENT FACTORY managing partner CHRIS CRANE. "We think that this is an important audience to serve based on our relationships with DAN PATRICK and local radio sports affiliates."
To launch, THE CONTENT FACTORY will add DAN PATRICK's "Weekly Pick Five" to THE DAN PATRICK SHOW and DANPATRICK.COM. "We've always said we want to give our listeners more to do online to connect them with sports, said PATRICK. "Football is their top priority so we felt it was important to add this feature that allows a great deal of fan engagement."
