March 29, 2018 (Los Angeles, CA/Chicago, IL) – Fresh off the heels of launching its 100+ million viewer network, ReachTV has announced a partnership with the national, multi-platform sports network Stadium. Launched in August 2017, Stadium will contribute daily, national sports content to the company’s recently introduced ReachTV Sports Channel that features a growing and diverse list of production, programming and distribution partnerships.
Through the partnership, Stadium will syndicate sports highlights, original programming, daily studio programming, and more to ReachTV’s expansive content platform, available on thousands of screens across the top-100 airports in the United States as well as in ReachTV’s 1,000,000 hotels rooms nationwide. To kick off the partnership today, Stadium will provide ReachTV viewers with in-depth news and analysis around MLB Opening Day, including insight on the players, teams, and predictions for the upcoming season. The announcement is part of a broader distribution strategy designed to bring Stadium’s 24/7 sports content to new fans and audiences across every screen.
“As the Stadium brand grows, we’re excited to partner with ReachTV to reach millions of sports fans in airports, hotel rooms and retail spaces across the country,” said Brendan Canning, Senior Vice President and head of distribution at Stadium. “As more fans are exposed to Stadium’s live and on demand platform, we’re confident that they will become hooked on all of the sports content that we’re delivering day in and day out.”
“As we continue to grow our sports platform, we are looking to grow with companies who share our innovative vision,” said ReachTV CEO and Co-Founder, Lynnwood Bibbens. “Stadium has invented a new medium in how sports are delivered and is ahead of the curve in what they are able to offer sports fans. We are excited to showcase their content and present them to new audiences they otherwise might not have touched.”
The Stadium channel joins AT&T Audience Network, The Players Tribune and Sports Illustrated as featured sports content as the latest in sports programming to be available via ReachTV Sports and across ReachTV’s network that touches 100 million total viewers in hotels, airports and retail stores throughout the country.
