With the college football season just around the corner, the satellite radio company has entered into a new five-year broadcasting agreement with Learfield and IMG, for both streaming and satellite radio rights. The result for fans? A greatly expanded number of college games available to subscribers on the SiriusXM app, in addition to those now available via satellite. The new agreement provides listeners with college football and basketball games from conferences across the country, including the ACC, AAC, Big Ten, Big 12, Big East, and Pac-12.
In addition, SiriusXM listeners will get SEC football and basketball on their satellite radios. Games from Notre Dame, Texas and USC have been available on both satellite radios and the SiriusXM app since 2012. For opening week of the 2016 college football season, SiriusXM will air 60 live games September 1-5, featuring every team from the Associated Press Top 25 poll.
Steve Cohen, SiriusXM’s SVP of Sports Programming said, “We’re very pleased to extend our agreements with Learfield and IMG, who have extraordinarily extensive portfolios of colleges and universities, to further enhance what college sports fans get with SiriusXM. The SiriusXM app continues to get bigger and better, with more live games and more options for fans who want to follow their favorite teams from anywhere. It supplements our robust lineup of games and talk on satellite radios, and continues to make SiriusXM an outstanding medium for college sports fans to connect with their teams.”
