VUit Will be the Exclusive Home of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race
VUit has announced it will be the exclusive streaming home of the Iditarod Sled Dog race, and the only place to stream the event for free outside of Alaska. The race begins March 7th in Willow Alaska where the teams will race to the historic gold-rush town of Iditarod and back, with the winner expected to cross the finish line on March 15th. The race is being produced by Gray Television-owned KTUU in Anchorage, Alaska, in collaboration with Iditarod.com.
Today, VUit is launching a special Iditarod channel dedicated to the race with highlights from previous years and more leading up to the 2021 kick-off.
“This year’s Iditarod is a bit different due to the pandemic,” said Nancy Johnson, General Manager of KTUU, adding “but there are always incredible stories to tell of the mushers and canine athletes and the challenges of the trail through Alaska’s rugged wilderness. We’re excited to share all of our coverage on VUit!”
“The Iditarod is exactly the kind of event we wanted to bring to viewers through VUit,” said Jack Perry, founder and CEO of VUit’s parent company, Syncbak. “It’s one of those exciting, hyperlocal sports competitions that fans outside of the local community rarely have the opportunity to watch. Through our platform, and our local partner KTUU’s fine work on the ground, viewers in the U.S., and even beyond will have the opportunity to enjoy every twist and turn of this exciting race.”
VUit is available on all major streaming platforms, including iOS and Android devices, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, AppleTV, and more.
