B/R Live to Offer Companion Digital Experience Exclusively Using “Skycam” View
TNT’s coverage of The Alliance of American Football’s inaugural season has expanded and will include the addition of a late-season game between the league-leading Orlando Apollos vs. Memphis Express with newly-signed quarterback Johnny Manziel. Live game coverage will begin Saturday, March 30, at 2 p.m. ET on TNT.
In addition to the TNT presentation, B/R Live – the premium live sports streaming service – will provide a live companion experience exclusively offering unique “Skycam” views of the action. This complementary presentation of the live action will allow audiences to see top-down and 360-degree panoramic perspectives of both games.
TNT will then continue its live AAF game coverage when it exclusively televises one Alliance playoff game – Sunday, April 21, at 3 p.m. – as per the previously announced agreement.
