Sling TV was the real winner of Mayweather-McGregor Fight

This, however, isn’t completely new. One could even say that the seeds of this new trend have been planted a little over four years ago by what was then called “lifelogging”.

A more social generation, more sophisticated technology, and four years of lessons learned.

In late 2015, NBC announced the then-upcoming launch of a streaming service that would provide nothing but comedy, doing so at a small $4/month price point.
