After a successful first PRO TV broadcast at Plantation Field International Horse Trials last month, we’re excited to announce that PRO and EN have teamed up as partners to further the goal of bringing live streams of major U.S. events to eventing fans everywhere. The next broadcast is scheduled for Galway Downs this weekend, with a full schedule in the works for 2015.
Spencer Sturmey and Samantha Clark will continue to lead the commentary team, and new feature segments with our own Jenni Autry will be introduced. Live Twitter feeds will also become part of the broadcast so that eventing fans can interact with the broadcast.
“This is a solid partnership for PRO TV,” Buck Davidson, Vice President of the Professional Rider’s Organization, said. “Each of the partners brings their strengths to the table and we believe that we complement each other very well.” We’re very excited about the new partnership and can’t wait to get started at Galway Downs. Maybe Chinch will make an on-camera appearance too!
The PRO TV broadcast from Galway Downs will feature the CCI3* division, which is part of the PRO Tour Series, with the live stream set to begin at 2 p.m. PDT/5 p.m. EDT on Sunday, Nov. 2.
PRO TV is broadcast on the PRO TV Livestream channel, and the live stream will also be embedded here on EN. A Livestream app for TV, iPhone, iPad and Android can also be downloaded from the iTunes Store and Google Play. Just follow the PRO TV channel to receive automatic updates on any schedule changes.
There are sponsorship opportunities available for segments and in-stream video advertising for the PRO TV 2015 broadcast schedule. Anyone interested in these opportunities can contact either PRO or Eventing Nation.
