Hot New Sports Channel on Burgeoning Streamer Dedicated to Local News & Culture Takes to The Hardwood with 2020/21 Season in Review Packages for All Conference Teams and Features on Top Players Including Those Entering This Year’s NBA Draft
New Basketball Programming to Debut June 17th
VUit, (pronounced “view it”), a free, ad-supported national streaming service aiming to be the “Netflix of Live, Local, and Free,” and the ACC Digital Network announced today plans to greatly expand the recently launched ACCDN Confidential channel, which was the top viewed channel on VUit in May reaching viewers in 195 markets, with a wide range of ACC basketball content. Starting June 17th, the 24/7 channel shining the spotlight on the renowned Atlantic Coast Conference, will debut a wide range of basketball content. Leading the way will be dedicated 2020/21 season-in-review packages for each conference team, as well as highlight reels for the conference’s top stars in advance of the July NBA Draft.
This past season was a season like no other as teams played against the backdrop of a pandemic. But that adversity didn’t stop the amazing action in this highly competitive conference that saw its share of buzzer beaters, upsets, and jaw-dropping plays. Each team will get their own dedicated season highlight show taking fans from the season’s tip-off through to the surprising run to the conference championship by Georgia Tech. ACCDN Confidential will also take fans on the court with the Conference stars that will be among the most buzzed about leading up to the July 2021 NBA draft. Best of 2020 highlight packages will be released for such Conference standouts as Duke’s Jalen Johnson, Matthew Hurt, and D.J. Steward; Florida State’s RaiQuan Gray; North Carolina’s Day’Ron Sharpe, Caleb Love, Kerwin Walton, Garrison Brooks, Armando Bacot; NC State’s DJ Funderburk; Georgia Tech’s Moses Wright, Jordan Usher and Michael Devoe; Notre Dame’s Juwan Durham; Syracuse’s Marek Dolezaj; Virginia’s Sam Hauser and Jay Huff; Miami’s Kameron McGusty and Chris Lykes; Boston College’s Steffon Mitchell; Clemson’s Aamir Simms and Pittsburgh’s Justin Champagnie.
Jack Perry, CEO and Founder of Syncbak said, “The ACCDN Confidential channel has really resonated with our audience. Sports fans from across the country who have made VUit a destination for finding local sports content have gravitated to it and really enjoyed the deeper dive it has given to date into the 2020 Football season. Now by adding basketball content we are further able to super serve the interest of the channel’s rapidly growing audience.”
Doubling down on the power and potential appeal of hyperlocal live content to a national audience, VUit carries more than 200 local TV channels along with a range of themed curated feature channels across politics, sports, food, business, entertainment and culture. Overall, VUit expects to stream more than 3 million hours of live programming annually, featuring a wide range of local, regional and special interest programming produced by leading television stations from across the country, along with thousands of “VUit Originals.” Since its launch, many of VUit’s hyperlocal content have attracted viewers from across 100s of US DMAs.
VUit is available on all major streaming platforms and devices, including mobile and desktop web, iOS and Android devices, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, AppleTV, and more.
