On the VIZIO SmartCast 24-hour streaming TV platform, SportsGrid Network, the first and only 24-hour streaming network dedicated to the sports wagering audience, was launched in the US.

The switch would add to the extensive channel line-up of the service , providing audiences across America with more news, culture , lifestyle, DIY, sports, comedy, and music.

The live and original programme schedule of SportsGrid includes a team of on-air personalities, expert hosts, and guest experts, broadcasting live from its New York City television production facilities adjacent to Madison Square Garden and inside the FanDuel Sportsbook at the Meadowlands.

Real-time content by the network covers the daily odds, matchups, injury updates, headlines and more in the NFL , NBA, MLB, NHL, college sports, golf , tennis and soccer.

Lou Maione, SportsGrid Founder and President, said: “We are extremely pleased to provide the millions of VIZIO SmartCast TV users access to the SportsGrid Network’s programming. SportsGrid delivers exciting and compelling content that will entertain and inform our viewers 24/7. We value our relationship with VIZIO and look forward to engaging the massive sports audience with our comprehensive live sports wagering coverage.”

The line-up of SportsGrid is anchored by the “In Game Live “weekday primetime programme. Each night, with live coverage and analysis of in-play breaking news, point spreads, odds, and line movement across all major sports, its flagship programme exemplifies the sports wagering genre.

“In-Game Live” focuses on the popularity and emergence of in-play wagering that recognises opportunities for game-specific odds and lines. Combined with its real-time graphical overlay called The EDGE, the informative expert commentary of the network alerts the sports wagering audience with time-sensitive actionable opportunities during the evening, as there might only be a matter of a few seconds to take advantage of the point spreads, moneylines, and real-time in-play wagering odds.

The network’s pre-game programmes include “Ferrall Coast to Coast” hosted by Scott Ferrall, accompanied by Gabe Morency and Cam Stewart’s “Game Time Decisions.”

“Ferrall Coast to Coast” offers the “edge” for the viewer with the forthcoming primetime schedule of live games and special events going over the lines, totals, and props. With expert commentary and analysis, “Game Time Decisions” reviews last-minute breaking news, real-time data and intelligence.
