In addition, Stadium will air conference tournament action from each of the five conferences for a total of 95 games in all.
The schedule includes 12 teams that were featured in the 2017 NCAA Tournament, including Vanderbilt, Dayton, Saint Mary’s, Middle Tennessee, Nevada, Bucknell, Florida Gulf Coast, Wake Forest, Rhode Island, U.C. Davis, VCU, and New Mexico State. It also includes a long list of well-regarded programs such as Pittsburgh, UNLV, San Diego State, Washington State, Boise State, Ole Miss, Memphis, George Washington, Georgetown, and UMass, among others.
Viewers will have free access to the live games distributed nationally via broadcast television and local-market syndication. They also will be available on digital platforms including WatchStadium.com, the Stadium iOS and tvOS apps, Twitter (@WatchStadium) and Pluto TV on Channel 207. An Android app as well as additional connected devices such as Roku and Amazon Fire TV will be available in the coming weeks.
“We are extremely excited to play such an important role in the upcoming college basketball season, and we believe that the breadth and quality of the package combined with our extensive distribution reach will provide a unique and first-class experience for our fans, conference partners, distribution partners, and of course our advertisers,” says Stadium CEO Jason Coyle.
