Today, Nexstar Media Group announced a deal with ReachTV that will see them add The CW and NewsNation. ReachTV offers streaming TV to 500,000 hotel rooms and 2,500+ airport TV screens in more than 90 major aiprots across the United States.
“Nexstar always looks for ways to extend the distribution of NewsNation and The CW Network to new audiences,” said Dana Zimmer, Nexstar’s President of Distribution. “This new partnership with ReachTV enables both of these national networks to deliver their exclusive live content to millions of travelers in hotels and airports across the United States, and provides our advertisers with access to new and even larger audiences.”
“ReachTV is thrilled to expand its live news offerings with NewsNation, and its live sports programming in partnership with The CW, to provide LIV Golf, ACC College Football, and ACC Men’s and Women’s College Basketball. Delivering these exciting and diverse new live sports offerings will help us meet demand from our audience of travelers, and build on our existing NFL rights to air every single NFL game, making ReachTV a new destination for live sports appointment viewing.” Said ReachTV’s Chief Executive Officer, Lynnwood Bibbens.
This will greatly expand The CW’s coverage of sporting events and more. NewsNation will also gain a sizeable market to help fill the void left after CNN shutdown its airport network after 30 years in operation back in 2021.
The CW is now home to ACC college football and basketball as well as LIV Golf.
