Fox Soul and PRN Communications finalized an agreement to bring games played by Historically Black Colleges and Universities to streaming for free this fall.
Fox Soul is a free live ad-supported streaming service promoting programs covering topics impacting the daily lives of the Black community locally and nationally. The platform launched in 2020. Its new partnership with PRC Communications’ Block College Sports Broadcasting Network adds college games to Fox Soul’s content roster.
“PRC Communications/BCSBN’s partnership with Fox Soul is an exciting extension of the distribution of our HBCU football and basketball schedule of games in 2023-2024,” said Pierre Cromartie, president and CEO of PRC Communications/BCSBN. “Our vision is to showcase to the nation the excitement around the experience of the HBCU sports culture, and Fox Soul will help us in that effort.”
College football coverage begins on September 9 with a 30-minute pregame show, HBCU GameTime, starting at 5:30 p.m. ET, according to NextTV. Kick-off begins at 6:00 p.m. ET on Fox Soul when Norfolk State University takes on Hampton University. Subsequent games will air every Saturday.
“Fox Soul is proud to partner with PRC Communications’ BCSBN to bring an outstanding lineup of premier HBCU football games to viewers,” said D’Artagnan Bebel, general manager and head of programming at Fox Soul. “We intend to grow this valuable partnership so we can further highlight the uniqueness of the HBCU experience to potential and current students, alumni, fans, and beyond.”
The agreement includes other sports, with basketball season to follow.
