Periscope is "moving very aggressively" into the live event broadcasting space, the chief executive of the live streaming app told CNBC on Thursday.
Last month, Twitter, which owns Periscope, signed a deal with the NFL to allow some Thursday night games to be streamed via its platform. It marked the first foray for Twitter into live broadcasting shows which are typically broadcast on TV.
As part of the deal, players and teams would use Periscope to live stream pre-match snippets. And there could be more such deals to come.
