It really does feel like the world has gone mad right now. Companies all around the world have been hit incredibly hard by the Coronavirus outbreak, with events and entertainment being particularly hard hit by social distancing regulations.

As a company, we have seen some of our favourite events have to cancel because of the virus. Snowboxx, The Nottingham Varsity Series and many ski trips, all called off at short notice. This pattern has been repeated all across the UK, and across the world. With requirements for social distancing in place, people cannot physically attend events, which means that organisers cannot run them.

Self isolation – good for content consumption?

Ironically, there is probably a larger audience for content right now than at any point in human history. People are looking for an escape, to get away from the madness that is the world. Steam, the worlds largest gaming service, reached record online numbers earlier this week. Netflix and other large streaming services have seen an increase in traffic and subscribers.

For smaller businesses and events though, this wave may seem out of reach. Those virtual attendees are hard to pin down, and how do you use them to create revenue? Livestreaming and distributing paid video content online is complex, and has a high entry bar.
