Relative newcomer Pluto TV just got a huge boost in its sports offerings thanks to a deal with the Big Sky Conference. Pluto TV now has exclusive rights to stream over 700 Big Sky Conference sporting events ranging from football to volleyball, while the Big Sky Conference now has a full-time network for its Division I NCAA sporting events, highlights, and news. The streaming service currently boasts around 6 million monthly active users, but the new deal will likely draw in many more viewers who are loyal to their Big Sky alma mater.
According to Big Sky Conference Commissioner Andrea Williams, the deal is part of the athletic conference’s attempt to remain relevant in the midst of the current cord cutting revolution:
We’re extremely excited to announce our new partnership with Pluto TV. With the changing media landscape and the rise of cord-cutting, it’s important that the Big Sky adapt in order to allow our fans to stay connected to us. With our new partnership with Pluto TV, Big Sky fans can have access to video content at home or on their mobile device. As long as you have an internet connection, you’ll have Big Sky Conference content.
The Pluto TV app is available on iOS and Android devices, Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, PlayStation and Xbox game consoles, and on most smart TVs. Pluto TV can be streamed over a web browser at pluto.tv/watch. Big Sky Conference athletic events will stream live on channel 230 on Pluto TV.
The Big Sky Conference includes twelve full-time member schools: the University of Idaho, Eastern Washington University, Idaho State University, University of Montana, Montana State University, University of North Dakota, Northern Arizona University, University of Northern Colorado, Portland State University, California State University Sacramento, Southern Utah University, and Weber State University.
