NBC Sports Live Extra to Begin Live-Streaming NBCSN's THE DAN PATRICK SHOW
NBC Sports Live Extra, the NBC Sports Group's live streaming product for digital, mobile and tablets, will begin live streaming NBCSN's The Dan Patrick Show tomorrow to participating cable, satellite and telco providers via "TV Everywhere." The Dan Patrick Show -- the renowned sports television show and Syndicated radio program starring Football Night in America co-host Dan Patrick -- is the first NBCSN original program to join NBC Sports and NBCSN live-event programming in NBC Sports Live Extra's robust live streaming portfolio.
Through NBC Sports Live Extra, sports fans can stream The Following properties and events live: the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games; Sunday Night Football; the NHL regular season, Stanley Cup Playoffs and Stanley Cup Final; Premier League and Major League Soccer matches; Formula One and IndyCar races; Triple Crown horse racing and Breeders' Cup; and much more. NBC Sports Live Extra will begin live streaming select NBCSN outdoor programming tomorrow as well. The vast majority of live streaming will only be available to authenticated cable, satellite or telco customers via "TV Everywhere," the media industry's effort to make quality content available to authenticated customers both in and out of the home, and on multiple platforms.
"NBC Sports Live Extra is pleased to expand its offerings beyond live events to original programming, and The Dan Patrick Show, which anchors the NBCSN morning block, is the perfect show to launch this new initiative," said Rick Cordella, SVP & GM, Digital Media, NBC Sports Group. "Sports fans can now watch the interviews, commentary and shenanigans of Dan and The Danettes wherever they go."
"Our TV show about a radio show on TV is now on the web," said Patrick. "We're no longer just in your home, now we're with you wherever you go. Streaming is step one. Next we come to your town to perform the show with the local theatre group and then we just go door to door in your neighborhood. Your resistance is futile."
Content on NBCSN, including all live-event content, The Dan Patrick Show and outdoor programming, streams live to PCs, mobile devices and tablets through NBC Sports Live Extra, and to the digital platforms of participating cable, satellite, and telco services, via "TV Everywhere," which is available on an authenticated basis to subscribers of participating MVPDs. Currently, nine of the 10 largest cable, satellite, and telco providers offer NBC Sports Live Extra to their customers.
