SAN FRANCISCO - Pac-12 Networks has announced the launch of Pac-12 Insider on its first international platform, SportsTribal, extending its reach to the UK. Pac-12 Insider is the first and only college sports channel on the new SportsTribal platform, bringing the best of Pac-12 sports to an even greater number of fans.
SportsTribal TV is the first free, ad-supported streaming TV service specializing exclusively in sports-themed content in the UK. The new, free-to-air sports streaming TV service hosts a wide selection of 24/7 linear sports channels, which are not available on traditional pay-tv operators.
Pac-12 Insider offers fans free access to select live events, the latest football highlights and re-airs from the past season, classic basketball encores and other top sports and programs across the Conference of Champions, and in-depth, behind-the-scenes stories that showcase the heart and soul of Pac-12 student-athletes, coaches and legends.
Additionally, Pac-12 fans can delve even further into March Madness by watching some of the best classic basketball games from the Conference of Champions throughout the month. Several of those unforgettable matchups feature current NBA starts, including Klay Thompson, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love, OJ Mayo and Brook & Robin Lopez. Pac-12 Insider will also feature an All-Century Men's Basketball Team show, featuring John Wooden, Kareem Abdul-Jabar and Bill Walton, among others.
“SportsTribal is a perfect fit for Pac-12 Insider and we are excited to provide some of the best Pac-12 Networks content to fans across the pond,” said Pac-12 Networks Vice President of Distribution Henry Watson. “With so many college sports fans feeling energized by March Madness, the timing couldn’t be better to increase the reach and accessibility of our Pac-12 content to an even greater international audience.”
“We are very excited to be working with Pac-12 Networks to stream the very best of U.S. collegiate sports action to the UK on SportsTribal TV,” said Frank Bowe, CEO and Founder of SportsTribal. “European viewers will now be able to access the live events and premium content available on Pac-12 Insider as part of our growing library of sports offerings.”
