Watching Sports is Great for Your Health

By | AudioFetch News, Business, Fitness Centers, Food for thought, Restaurants, Sports Bars, streaming | No Comments

Sports fanatics everywhere rejoice! According to ScienceAlert, there’s research proving that watching sports is actually healthy for you.  

Vaughan Macefield, Professor of Integrative Physiology in the School of Medicine at University of West Sydney says, “We know that the sympathetic nervous system – which supplies the heart, sweat glands and blood vessels increases its activity during actual exercise, and now we have shown that it increases when you are watching a [runner] as if you were running yourself.”  

This means that your body gets a small workout just from watching a game. While watching your favorite team won’t replace real exercise, the research also proves that watching sports is an encouragement to get off the couch and break a sweat.

Watching your favorite team has psychological benefits as well. Sports psychologist William Wiener, PhD says that “People who root and are attached to their teams are less depressed than those who are uninvolved.”

Watching sports builds camaraderie with your friends which helps you live longer, builds identity with your community, and the entertainment factor is stress-relieving. Sports fans are also less lonely and have higher self-esteem. Best of all, watching sports with your partner can be good for your relationship (especially if your team wins!).   

So put on that face paint and join your friends at the local sports tavern for game day and have some healthy fun.

Is Your Sports Bar Ready For Super Bowl 2019?

By | Restaurants, Sports Bars, Uncategorized | No Comments

According to Bleacher Report, the Super Bowl is the 4th most popular sporting event in the entire world, just behind FIFA World Cup, the Olympics, and Le Mans race [see note below].  For football fans though, the day of the Super Bowl is hands-down the best day of the year! It’s no secret that Super Bowl fans like to P-A-R-T-Y.  They want to be in a group sharing the joy and pain; some will choose to attend viewing parties, but many want to enjoy the game at their local sports bar or pub that offers the best viewing experience possible with large screen monitors and a way to hear everything from the announcers to the refs to Maroon 5 and Big Boi at half-time.

There will be lots of Super Bowl groups gathering in bars across the country on February 3rd and while they’re sure to have a grand time cheering and high-fiving over that touchdown or completed pass, many fans who watch at your establishment will also want to somehow hear the game over all of the excitement happening in the room. Giving your customers the ability to hear the entire game can be that something extra to make your establishment the Super Bowl hangout of choice.

There is a simple way to allow every customers to hear TV at the sports bar even while they are cheering, ranting, and raving, and that is to have an audio solution in place that streams sound directly to their smartphone. With minimal equipment and hassle, your patrons can use an app to listen to TV at the bar, participating in the boisterous game watching yet never missing a single word of the broadcast.  They can’t even do that at home!

An AudioFetch streaming device is simple to install and directs the game to everyone’s cell phone so they can hear through their own earbuds.  If you’d like to learn more about how our wireless audio streaming products can help upgrade your bar, contact us today

Be The Best Spot For World Cup

By | Dining, Restaurants, Sports Bars, Uncategorized | No Comments

Get ready! The men’s World Cup begins on June 14 in Russia with 32 qualifying teams representing every continent competing for the trophy.

Soccer is the world’s most popular sport and the World Cup continues to break viewing records. 764 million people watched the last women’s World Cup, making it the most-watched event in the history of sports. Winning (or losing) a football match is a matter of community pride, and can set a whole nation to beaming (or moping).

This means that beginning on June 14, millions of soccer’s passionate and vocal fans will seek their local pub, restaurant, or sports bar to watch the games with a community of cheering celebrants.

Watching the game is ultra-important to the fans, but hearing it is important, too. When a host of people are shouting and high-fiving because their team just scored, there are fans supporting the opposing team who are hoping to hear the ref call a foul. Or suppose at that moment a player shouted something at the ref or a fight started. It’s that “what just happened” moment that no one wants to miss hearing.

You no longer need to make a choice between making customers choose just one game or no sound at all. With an audio wireless streaming solution that connects to your WiFi, you can set your televisions to whichever games are happening and customers can hear the game they want, no matter where their tables may be, simply by using their smartphones or tablets. It’s a solution that makes all patrons happy–your sports fans have the best possible audio experience, and those who aren’t interested in the game can listen to another option if they choose or nothing at all.

Installing a system that streams audio over wifi in time for the World Cup can mean more Instagram moments and Tweets saying, “I’M HERE!” Your bar or restaurant is the place to be. And think of the year-round benefit. Baseball, basketball, American football, hockey, and every world championship.

If you’re an American bar owner who is dubious about how useful this will be since the U.S. didn’t make this year’s World Cup, remember: the Women’s World Cup is in 2019, and they played the most-watched soccer game in the nation’s history.

Get ready now, and contact us to see how we can help you give your patrons a better game day experience.

5 Ways Local Audio Streaming Improves Your Guest’s Experience

By | Restaurants, Sports Bars | No Comments

Happy guests make for happy bar and restaurant owners. That’s because happy guests come back more often, and when they do, they spend 67% more than first-time customers. So how do you keep guests coming back (and ultimately spending more)? You might say by providing high quality of food and drinks at affordable prices. And you’d be right. But that’s not the full story. Guests are also looking for a comfortable environment for spending time with friends and family. They’re also looking for entertainment options, things that make dining out different than at home.

Local, live audio streaming provides both of these benefits, leaving customers more satisfied and increasing likelihood of repeat visits. Here are five ways that local audio streaming improves your guest’s experience.

1. Not Too Loud, Not Too Quiet

Local audio streaming is the Goldilocks of sports bar sound systems. They turn a guest’s phone into a personal listening device, allowing them to make the sound volume just right without inconveniencing other guests. Everyone wins!

2. A Little Something For Everyone

Speaking of everyone being winners, guests also have the option to choose their preferred game or program. Maybe Dad prefers football but Son likes hockey. Or Wife wants to watch the big game but Husband just wants to catch up on highlights from several sports. No more fighting over remotes!

3. More Productive Staff

When wait staff have to continually turn the sound up and down, turn TVs on and off, and flip through channels, they’re wasting time that could be spent taking orders, running food or checking on other customers. Being able to offer an app to listen to TV at the bar puts the power of sound in the customer’s hands, freeing your staff up to provide better service.

4. Family-Friendliness

Taking the family out to eat is a treat. A pleasant evening can quickly turn stressful, however, if the kids aren’t happy. Allowing kids to tune into a game or movie playing on a TV can help to extend that pleasant evening a little longer, making it a more enjoyable experience for the entire family.

5. Fantasy Sports Friendliness

People that play fantasy sports often have players on multiple real sports teams. With local audio streaming, they can easily switch from game to game see how each of their players is doing.

Offering your customers a unique and customize-able experience increases their satisfaction, and the likelihood that they’ll come back again and again.
