TUNEIN is offering what it calls "the most comprehensive, free college football coverage available," with free access to hundreds of game broadcasts, including all PAC-12 games. The games are being streamed through deals with IMG COLLEGE, LEARFIELD SPORTS, ESPN RADIO, and SPARTAN SPORTS NETWORK.
“TUNEIN connects people with the places and things that mean the most to them,” said TUNEIN CEO JOHN DONHAM. “By giving college football fans a way to listen to hundreds of live games, TUNEIN is bringing the passion of live sporting events to the world in a way that has not been done before.”
“Until now, it has been difficult for fans to catch a free, live game outside of the school’s network area,” said CHAD CLEVELAND, Assistant Vice President, Digital Content and Strategic Partnerships, IMG COLLEGE. “This collaborative effort among our partner schools and TUNEIN is a great compliment to our terrestrial radio affiliates in bringing fans free audio broadcasts on a variety of platforms. Fans can enjoy their favorite team’s home radio call from anywhere in the world – on their computer, in the car, or on their smart phone.”
“We are always looking for innovative ways for fans to connect with the universities they are so passionate about,” said JOE FERREIRA, Senior Vice President, Chief Content Officer, LEARFIELD SPORTS. “Having cross-platform access to live game coverage provides that connection fans demand.”
