Bloomberg Fantasy Product on Its Way

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

Bloomberg has made a pretty sizable splash with its leap into the sports analytics pool, and now we can finally check out the sports portal.

The extremely sleek design and attractive intro gives way to a page that simply presents options to read a bit about the Bloomberg Sports mission, pre-order the fantasy product or check out the services the company offers to pro teams.

The fantasy baseball draft kit says it will be available in February, though we sit nearly halfway through the month now with no more specific date mentioned. It’s also rather pricey, at $19.95, with the in-season component priced at $24.95 (or package them for $31.95).

Although there’s a decent description of what will be included, customers will apparently have to trust the worthiness of the product, as the site doesn’t seem to offer much in the way of demonstration of its wares. This is a bit disappointing for a new product/service from a company that certainly has the wherewithal to create some kind of a preview.

If any FSB.com readers order the Bloomberg fantasy product, we’d be interested to hear what you think — particularly as it compares to other fantasy services you have experienced.
