Today Stadium a new, 24/7, sports network is now officially live. You can watch Stadium for free on WatchStadium.com, Twitter (@WatchStadium), and PlutoTV. (You will also find Stadium on Sling TV replacing the Campus Insider Channel.) The network will air live and on-demand games and events, extensive highlights, classic games, original programming and daily live studio programming. Stadium will also be free over the air in some markets. (The over-the-air launch of the 24/7 network is slated for next month. Stadium says more details on the OTA availability will be announced shortly.)
“We stand alone in our ability and enthusiasm for taking the concept of a television style 24/7 network into a new digital marketplace and aligning our distribution with current fan behaviors and next generation platforms,” said Stadium CEO Jason Coyle.
Here is a sampling of what they will air this week:
