"Armchair quarterbacks everywhere should ditch their recliner on Sunday and belly up to a Buzztime BEOND bar," said Buzztime CEO Jeffrey Berg. "We can't get you on the field, but you'll feel like you're in the game with PrePlay's football product, which we will proudly feature on the Buzztime BEOND entertainment platform."

NTN Buzztime (NYSE MKT: NTN), North America's leader in bar and restaurant entertainment, and PrePlay, Inc., a leading provider of predictive gaming solutions, announced the strategic partnership on football's annual media day. The alliance makes PrePlay's hit mobile prediction games available on the Buzztime BEOND entertainment platform.

Enabling PrePlay's hit mobile games for Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League and pro and college football for Buzztime's BEOND platform will allow sports fans to engage in the PrePlay experience – predicting every play, chatting with and competing against friends, while watching live sports in their favorite bar or restaurant. 

"PrePlay's mission is to enable fans to predict every play of every sport," said founder and CEO Andrew Daines.  "This partnership with Buzztime, which will offer PrePlay products to millions of sports fans in bars and restaurants across North America, hits squarely on that mission.  We could not be more thrilled."

In addition to PrePlay's football product that allows fans to predict every play of the upcoming football championship game on Feb. 2, NHL PrePlay is expected to be available in Buzztime locations on Jan. 30, and MLB PrePlay will be available in the spring. PrePlay's mobile games are free to play and are available for iOS and Android.  Search PrePlay in the App Store and Google Play or visit www.preplaysports.com to download.

Buzztime's BEOND platform is the newest addition to the suite of entertainment products that Buzztime has been offering to bars and restaurants for more than 29 years. Buzztime now registers more than 150,000 new players a month, anchored by the addition of a 700% increase in BEOND player registrations. BEOND has also seen a 500 percent increase in gameplay, which is staggering when you consider that Buzztime games are already played more than 52 million times a year. Arbitron studies show that Buzztime players already spend 27 minutes longer and spend $5 more on average than non-players in the 3200 bars and restaurants where they play.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
