<p class="font_8">Ireland’s public broadcaster RTE is used Never.no to manage live audience engagement for the new sports series ‘Ireland’s Greatest &nbsp;Sporting Moment’.</p>
<p class="font_8"><br></p>
<p class="font_8">The show, filmed in front of a live studio audience, sees presenters and analysts debate the country’s greatest sporting moments of the last 50 years.</p>
<p class="font_8"><br></p>
<p class="font_8">The new format has engaged viewers across platforms, leading to an increase in viewing audience &nbsp;share. Driven by votes and comments shared live across social and digital platforms, the show is the number one trend on social media on each night of its live broadcasts.</p>

<p class="font_8"><br></p>
<p class="font_8">The format of the &nbsp;show is a new direction for RTE where the audience are driving the &nbsp;program’s editorial. Each decade’s top moment (and ultimately Ireland’s &nbsp;Greatest Sporting Moment) is determined by a live social media vote from viewers at home.</p>
<p class="font_8"><br></p>
<p>The audience were encouraged to share their comments and cast their votes in live polls across multiple social networks.Never.no’s &nbsp;social management platform Bee-On was used by RTE producers to manage &nbsp;the incoming live votes as well as comments, photos and videos shared in &nbsp;real time via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Never.no’s presenter &nbsp;application Prompter enables the show’s hosts to also see which UGC has &nbsp;been shortlisted for on air broadcast along with up-to-the-second poll &nbsp;results throughout the broadcast.</p>
<p><br></p>
<p>The social nature of the program has generated huge amounts of discussions and &nbsp;debate around the show which has helped to drive TV viewers. Using &nbsp;Facebook Live to unveil the voting shortlist, running social polls and &nbsp;sharing short-form videos has extended RTE’s reach.The new &nbsp;approach for RTE has enabled the broadcaster to truly reflect the views &nbsp;of the viewing audience in real time and to showcase those views.</p>

<p><strong>“Bee-On enabled us to &nbsp;engage with our audience in a way that hasn’t been possible before. Lots &nbsp;of shows talk about engaging with the audience without really &nbsp;committing to it. We were determined to properly reflect the views of &nbsp;the people watching, with never.no’s user-friendly system, this was an &nbsp;effective and painless process.” - </strong>Ryan McCann - Programme Producer at RTE Sport</p>
