FRONTIER LEAGUE & FLOSPORTS PARTNERSHIP TALKING POINTS
What is the partnership between FloSports and the Frontier League?
The Frontier League has entered into a partnership with FloSports to exclusively broadcast all regular season league games, the Frontier League All-Star game, and league Playoffs on a digital only, OTT streaming service.
Why is this important?
The Frontier League now has a place to call home. Frontier League games can be viewed on ONE platform making it easier for fans to experience the best of Frontier League baseball anywhere, anytime and on any device.
The Frontier League and its teams believe live streaming sports on OTT platforms is the new way of media consumption, which is how the Frontier League’s fans and younger demographics are already consuming media. So we wanted to distribute our events to align with their viewing habits and the current viewership trends. In addition, FloSports can guarantee international distribution.
Why are we making this change and is it better than what we had before?
The Frontier League strives to give fans the best overall viewing experience and the FloSports platform takes us to the next level. In addition to game broadcasts FloSports will be the place where fans will have access to news and curated content around the Frontier League.
Fans can just log-in to FloSports and they’ll be able to watch a game live or on-demand anytime, anywhere. They can watch on their phones, TVs, desktops or through the app. This partnership allows us to reach fans where they are.
That’s great, but how much does this cost our fans?
FloSports offers both MONTHLY and ANNUAL subscriptions.
The monthly rate is $29.99 a month, billed monthly.
The annual subscription is a better value and saves you money in the long term. That subscription is billed once and at $149.88 annually. The annual subscription equates to almost a 60% savings from the monthly subscription.
It’s important to stress the value of the offering. Both the monthly and the annual subscription gives you access to the ENTIRE FloSports network. All their available collegiate and summer league baseball programming as well as football, motorsports, cycling, softball, wrestling, grappling, volleyball, cheerleading and other sports competitions, new and original films and documentaries, breaking news, exclusive interviews, training tips and more.
