Arizona Bowl Sports Tech Partnership
The exclusive, interactive experience at Campus Insiders features co-production with 120 Sports of digital-only pre-game, halftime, and post-game coverage. Look for real time cut-ins featuring live analysis, commentary, and social media updates. The robust video experience of the Mountain West Conference teams will originate from the 120 Sports studios and feature on-field reporting from Campus Insiders host, Shae Peppler, along with other on-site production elements.
Through the partnership, college football fans have access to the enhanced fan experience delivered via the video player’s integrated ‘data cards’ on both Campus Insiders and 120 Sports platforms including CampusInsiders.com and the award-winning suite of 120 Sports mobile and tablet applications.
“With MLBAM’s data cards integrated into the viewer experience, fans will be able to consume all of the game action and corresponding media through one device, whether that’s your PC or phone,” said Crowley Sullivan, Executive Vice President, Campus Insiders. “No more switching from one device to the next. Just lean back and take it all in – or tap away at the data cards for deeper coverage when you choose – within one experience.”
Campus Insiders, the official media partner of the NOVA® Home Loans Arizona Bowl, will be simulcast internationally on CampusInsiders.com, 120Sports.com, 120Sports iOS, android and AppleTV apps as well as Verizon’s go90TM app.
A partnership with American Sports Networks will allow fans to watch via syndicated broadcast stations reaching over 90 million homes, according to Bill Lutzen, Vice President for American Sports Network (ASN). Through ASN, a division of Sinclair Networks Group, which is owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc., the December 29th game is the only football bowl contest this season syndicated to broadcast and cable outlets.
ASN has reached syndication agreements with stations in cities across the country, including New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, and the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as markets that surround the competing teams such as Reno, Las Vegas, Denver and Colorado Springs.
