)-- Backlight TV announced that it will inaugurate its new weekly series of D1, D2, and D3 football games with the Indiana University of Pennsylvania Crimson Hawks hosting the Bears of Kutztown University on Saturday September 12th. The pre game show will start at 3:45pm with kick off scheduled for 4pm.
While the telecast of a college football game in September may not be huge news, the key element to this event is that it will be delivered to multiple video platforms. The game will be seen on Roku, Android, TV Tibi, Flipps TV, IPoint TV, ChannelMaster TV and more to be added before game.
This means that consumers can watch this and future games on all device including, Smart TVs, Windows 8.1 and 10 desktops, Roku, Apple iOS phones and tablets, Android phones and tablets, Xbox 1s and PlayStation 4s. This event will be accessible free of charge to the consumer.
“We have been planning this event for quite some time,” said Jack Pennington, principle for Innova TV Networks, the parent company for Backlight TV. “This is happening in advance of our launch of 2 new all sports networks, Rivals Sports Network and Rivals World Wide.”
Pennington elaborated, “Rivals Sports Network will be a source of smaller D1 through 3 college sports viewing covering all types of sports. Football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, swimming, tennis, field hockey, and wrestling will all be seen on Rivals.”
Jack went on to explain, “We looked at the numbers and 55% of all college graduates here in the US, graduate from smaller colleges and university that are almost never televised. Their alumni really don’t get the chance to see their schools compete live. Rivals will be changing that as we add more schools and conferences to our roster.”
When Rivals Sports Network isn’t broadcasting college games, it will be showing coaches shows and games from key minor leagues like Premiere Basketball League. Rivals will announce its lineup of leagues and sports soon. Events and sports announcement are forthcoming.
Pennington went further to say, “We will also be announcing both domestic and international platform, cable and telecom partners. We are very excited about the weeks and months to come.”
