California-based Internet radio streamer TuneIn announced today that it has extended its partnership with the college radio sports network IMG in order to deliver hundreds of college football games to TuneIn’s 50 million-plus monthly active users.
The enhanced alliance between TuneIn and IMG bolsters the distribution of IMG radio content, enabling TuneIn to carry every play-by-play broadcast, along with additional college football content from more than 60 IMG College teams. According to TuneIn, last year more than 1 million unique listeners used the radio network to listen to live broadcasts of every Pac-12 game, and this year the duo is extending the content partnership beyond the west-coast conference by adding 57 additional schools to TuneIn. The list includes defending national champions Florida State, and a litany of 0ther top programs such as Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Kansas, Texas, Virginia Tech, Ohio State, South Carolina, Ole Miss, and Nebraska.
Each of the IMG College teams will have its own uniquely branded, 24/7 channel on TuneIn, with live play-by-play, pre-game and post-game shows, live weekly coaches shows, and in-season game replays. Fans will also be able to search broadcast network names on TuneIn to discover 24/7 team channels such as Oregon IME Sports Network, the Mountaineer IMG Sports Network, and the Seminole IMG Sports Network.
In addition to football, TuneIn will also carry basketball coverage for participating IMG schools when the season begins in November. Fans will be able to tune in and hear play-by-play coverage of programs including defending national champion UConn, preseason number-one ranked Duke, and other big names in the NCAA like Kentucky, Kansas, Gonzaga, and Pittsburgh.
