Sling TV is to launch Campus Insiders, expanding its college sports programming.

The channel will provide access to hundreds of live college sporting events, including the inaugural NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl. Campus Insiders will be accessible on all devices supported by Sling TV as part of the $5 per month Sports Extra pack, available to customers who subscribe to the Best of Live TV core package.

"People flock to Sling TV for live sports and we have seen incredible viewership on sports channels every Saturday, as college football ramps up. Campus Insiders deepens our college sports offering with conferences that, until today, have been underserved when it comes to watching games live," said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. "Everyone deserves the chance to root for their favourite team on the big screen, and we are proud to be the first to offer these fans that premium experience with Sling TV."

Featured live and on-demand, content will include programmes such as the Seth Davis Show, studio shows covered with highlights and footage from all major conferences and hundreds of live sporting events including American football, basketball, baseball, volleyball, soccer and more from college conferences including the Mountain West Conference, Patriot League, West Coast Conference and the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA).

Subscribers to the Sports Extra pack will also be able to watch the inaugural NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl, an event slated for 29 December, featuring two teams from among the Mountain West Conference, Conference USA and the Sun Belt Conference.
