Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 17, 2017
Today, Stadium announced its lineup of over 25 college football games that will run on its national digital and over-the-air broadcast linear services. Stadium, a new, fully programmed, multi-platform sports network featuring exclusive live and on-demand games and events, extensive highlights, classic games, original programming and daily live studio programming, will officially launch its linear feeds in the coming weeks.
The initial lineup includes 15 games from Conference USA, 10 Patriot League matchups and three games from the Southern Conference. With 17 appearances by bowl teams from last season, Stadium will feature several exciting marquee matchups and moments including five games from dynamic coach Lane Kiffin’s inaugural season at Florida Atlantic, the historic return of UAB football following the elimination of the program, and new FIU coach Butch Davis’s matchup with Kiffin and the rival Owls.
Viewers will have free access to the live games nationally via broadcast and/or digital outlets. Digital outlets will include WatchStadium.com, soon-to-be-released Stadium iOS and Android apps, as well as connected TV devices including Apple TV. In addition, all games featured in the linear Stadium experience will be available on Twitter (@WatchStadium) and the leading free Internet Television service, Pluto TV. The full, national over-the-air broadcast footprint will be announced in the coming weeks.
Stadium plans to announce an additional slate of live games, additional distribution partners and a live game talent-lineup shortly.
