The Women’s Sports Network has launched a free channel on Roku to stream original shows and programming from partners such as the Athletes Unlimited, the WNBA, LPGA Tour, Street League Skateboarding, U.S. Ski & Snowboard, USGA, Women’s Football Alliance, and World Surf League. The new channel for Roku TVs and devices expands WSN’s streaming distribution partners that already includes Amazon Freevee, FuboTV, LG Channels on LG Smart TVs, Local Now, Plex, Sports.tv, Tubi and Xumo.
L.A.-based streaming company FAST Studios launched the Women’s Sports Network in early November. Its programming includes documentaries and a daily studio show called “Game On” that discusses the latest trending topics across women’s sports. The Women’s Sports Network has not secured rights to livestream full games but plans to eventually be involved in rights for live games.
“I’d love to be able to get in the sandbox and play with the big boys and girls and be able to acquire some live rights,” former ESPN exec and Women’s Sports Network advisor Carol Stiff previously told SBJ in November.
