TV streaming platform fuboTV has announced the appointment of Mike Berkley as Chief Product Officer. Mr. Berkeley will oversee all of the company’s product strategy and development, and will report to CEO David Gandler.
“Following our recent public offering, we are primed to take fuboTV to the next phase of our evolution, of which product and technology will play an even bigger role,” said Mr. Gandler. “One of our goals is to leverage data and consumer insights to build a more sophisticated live TV streaming platform that integrates video content and interactivity. Mike has the right skill set to help get us there - he’s led product development for some of the world’s biggest media companies while also building from scratch entirely new businesses for companies, like Spotify, and as a tech founder. I’m thrilled to welcome Mike to fuboTV.”
Mr. Berkeley has more than 20 years of experience in the product space, including the last 10 years working in the development of streaming video and TV. He most recently served as Chief Product Officer at Axios, and has previously held product management positions at Moviepass, Viacom and Comcast.
“I am very excited to join fuboTV at this pivotal moment for the company,” said Mr. Berkley. “We are well-positioned to accelerate growth by introducing new product experiences that take advantage of our sports-first content offering, proprietary platform and renowned video tech. The potential for casual gaming and wagering as part of the live sports viewing experience is especially compelling. I love the company’s ambition.”
