Interview with John Levy CEO and Founder theScore

Sightline’s Philip Beere sat down for an interview with John Levy Founder and CEO of theScore, Inc. Kirk Sanford Sightline’s CEO stated, “theScore is one of the most popular sports apps and we look forward to our partnership in its plans to launch online and mobile sports betting in the US.” John is a media industry entrepreneur, growing his family’s small cable business into one of the 10 largest distributors in the country, before launching Sportscope in 1994, an alphanumeric TV channel delivering sports scores and stats 24/7. This evolved into theScore Television Network, a leader in authentic and interactive sports entertainment, providing sports news, highlights and live games. By 2012 theScore was available in more than 6.6 million homes across Canada and, in October that year, John and his team structured and executed the sale of Score Media’s television assets to Rogers Media and the spin-out of Score Media’s digital assets to Score Media’s shareholders into a new entity – theScore, Inc. This allowed John and his team to focus 100% on growing theScore’s hugely popular mobile platforms, including its flagship app ‘theScore,’ one of the most popular sports apps in North America.
