VIZIO Adds New Sports Programming Including The NFL Channel, Pac-12 Insider, and More




, ,

Today, VIZIO announced it’s launching an all-in-one sports app and three new sports channels available to SmartCast Viewers. This new move will cater to the millions of sports fans in the U.S. by providing even more coverage of professional, collegiate, and international sports.

VIZIO’s viewers clearly have an affinity for sports, as NFL, NBA and MLB games were the top three shows on linear TV as a percentage of watch time on VIZIO SmartCast TVs last September.

Here are the new channels

The NFL Channel provides a curated feed of exemplary library content devoted to providing fans the best NFL Films and NFL Media productions have to offer. Among the new programming coming to the NFL Channel are series dedicated to the NFL’s 100 season-long celebration in 2019 such as NFL’s 100 Greatest, NFL 100 All-Time Team and NFL 100 Generations. Additionally, the NFL Channel will provide programming such as the Emmy award-winning series Hard Knocks, along with series such as NFL Game Replay, NFL Mic’d Up, NFL Top 10, Around the NFL and more. The channel will also showcase highlights from games dating back over a decade and replays of some of the most iconic matchups in NFL history.

The CBS Sports App on SmartCast gives fans front row access to the biggest sports events and 24/7 news, highlights and more in a standalone sports app experience. With the CBS Sports App, fans get access to major live sports events, from football to basketball to soccer and golf, plus free, round-the-clock news, highlights and award-winning fantasy advice on CBS Sports HQ.

Pac-12 Insider offers fans free access to the latest football and basketball highlights, classic encores of the 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. This month, Pac-12 Insider fans have access to classic matchups that feature some of the NBA’s brightest stars, including James Harden, Kevin Love, Klay Thompson and Russell Westbrook, from their time as Pac-12 student-athletes. Additionally, all of this season’s action on the gridiron is available through weekly installments of “Football in 60,” the no time-out, no-huddle, condensed one-hour re-airs of the most recent Pac-12 football matchups.

beIN SPORTS XTRA offers a sampling of beIN SPORTS’ world-class content. The free, 24/7 English-language live sports, news, analysis and highlights channel brings everyone closer to the game with dedicated coverage of LaLiga, Ligue 1, SüperLig, Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana. Live matches from African Nations Championship, Basketball Champions League and original programming such as Sports Burst round out the robust sports content available for free to beIN SPORTS XTRA viewers. SmartCast viewers will soon have access to the network’s upcoming launch of a Spanish-language version of beIN SPORTS XTRA.
