Action Network, the #1 rated app for sports bettors and leading source for sports information, news, and content, announced the immediate launch and availability of their proprietary tools and services in Kentucky. After online and retail sports betting passed both the House and Senate and was signed into law by Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear in March 2023, Action Network is now available for download on iOS and Android for sports fans living and visiting the Bluegrass State.
Action Network makes being a fan easy by offering Kentuckian’s visibility and curated bet tracking across several sportsbooks like Fanatics, FanDuel, bet365, BetMGM, Caesars, and more in one place. Sports fans can find live scores, plus lines, odds, premium content, and guidance for their favorite teams and athletes. Action Network features everything from moneyline bets to spread bets, over/unders, player props, live in-game betting markets, and the always popular Same Game Parlays (SGPs).
“Awareness of popular sportsbook brands is at an all-time high, and with more than a dozen sportsbooks to choose from, Action Network provides a seamless consumer shopping experience that reduces the amount of time and effort a prospective bettor spends on finding the best odds, information, and guidance around their interests,” said Action Network CEO Patrick Keane.
“Bringing our services to the home of Kentucky Derby and the University of Kentucky Basketball is a huge moment for Action Network. We are uniquely positioned and excited to turn sports fans into sports experts by delivering relevant sports content, betting information, and relevant news,” said Action Network Chief Content Officer Chad Millman.

The commercial partnership includes Better Collective delivering its innovative technology and content for sports betting to educate and empower the US audience of online bettors and help them navigate in a market that is growing fast as more and more federal states open for regulated online betting and iGaming. The US market is already a key market for Better Collective with established sports betting brands including the most recent acquisition of leading US sports media platform, Action Network, in 2021. In the recently opened New York state, Better Collective is off to a great start with the current five operators that have started operations and the expected entry of an additional four operators as soon as they meet the regulatory requirements. This underlines Better Collective’s strong position in the US mobile sport betting market, which is now further strengthened by the media partnership.
The US sports betting market is, according to Vixio, expected to grow from a Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) of ~$2.5bn in 2021 to ~$5.8bn by 2023. By 2030 the market is expected to exceed $40bn GGR. By 2022, Better Collective expects that its revenue from the US will exceed 100 mUSD. With the continued regulation of states and addition of new operators, the growth is expected to continue for years to come.
The commercial relationship provides Better Collective and Action Network with an additional marketing channel to operate, market and manage customer contacts to the betting operators within the US. Better Collective entered the first media partnerships in 2019 and has refined the concept to reach breakthroughs in performance as well as the addition of three new partnerships last year.
The details of the financial terms remain undisclosed. Better Collective will be responsible for the monetization of the joint business, and will hold and own accounts with the betting operators.
Marc Pedersen, CEO Better Collective US said:
“We believe that educating bettors and iGamers by providing them with relevant information, data and statistics will enhance their betting experience. The partnership with the New York Post is the biggest media partnership agreement to date for Better Collective. It will allow us to reach a very large number of potential users and we are excited to partner with the New York Post to provide betting and iGaming information to a growing audience.”
Patrick Keane, CEO of Action Network said:
“The New York mobile launch was the biggest weekend in Action Network history. We look forward to providing our unique sports betting insights, data and content to the New York Post readers as they decide on placing wagers with sportsbooks.”

“We are looking forward to bringing better sports betting content and utility to the best sports fans to continue our commitment to deliver unrivaled sports coverage. Better Collective’s innovative tools and informative content will provide our fans with the best resources to navigate sports betting with ease.”
The partnership agreement is expected to be operational from January 21, 2022. The financial impact will be included in the financial targets for 2022 that will be published in connection with the company’s Full Year Report for 2021.
