AV Benefits:

Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

Professional Reviews:

"Excellent...extremely timely... FRONTLINE has the good fortune to assemble it's report - produced and directed by Frank Koughan, who wrote it with Times reporter-correspondent Walt Bogdanich - as the industry was threatening to implode." - Brian Lowry, Variety

"As the timely, engaging PBS FRONTLINE program "The Fantasy Sports Gamble" points out, the line between pro sports leagues and fantasy-sports sites that spends millions of dollars on commerical TV advertising has never been more murky, or hard to read... FRONTLINE tackles these questions head-on. - Alex Strachan, TV Worth Watching

The film traces the phenomenal growth of these multi-billion fantasy sports businesses...the FRONTLINE material might be enough to make anyone who believes that fantasy sports isn't gambling - or couldn't become an addiction - to think twice." - Rob Lowman, Los Angeles Daily News

"The long awaited episode of PBS FRONTLINE dealing with DFS - a joint investigation with the New York Times - airs Tuesday night...expect plenty of state and federal politicians to be especially shocked - shocked by Wednesday morning." - Calvin Ayre

"Titled 'The Fantasy Sports Gamble' it's worth a watch for anyone interested in the subject. And for companies like Fan-Duel, and Boston based Draft Kings, they receive attention as the documentary explains not only how fantasy sports remained legal after a 2006 federal act outlawed other forms of internet gambling." - Hayden Bird, BostInno

"As the Super Bowl fun fades, PBS is revisiting the darker side of football. This time it's not damage to the players, but to the fans. FRONTLINE report views sports gambling in general and the daily fantasy games - mostly legal, for now in particular." - Mike Hughes, Lansing State Journal

3 out of 4 stars
"...effectively draws attention to a problematic practice. Recommended." - Video Librarian
