Pro Bull Riders RidePass Channel: ‘Western Sports. Anywhere. Anytime. No Limits’

By Barry Janoff

January 5, 2018: Even as they take over New York to launch their 25th anniversary tour, Pro Bull Riders has bigger plans: Bringing their nitty, gritty, hard-riding competitions to the masses.

Pro Bull Riders has unveiled details for RidePass, a streaming and on-demand channel scheduled launch in February, described as “Western Sports. Anywhere. Anytime. No Limits.”

RidePass will stream exclusive live and on-demand action from the PBR 25th Anniversary Tour and the Real Time Pain Velocity Tours, and will also be loaded with content to include premier rodeos, original series, news, behind-the-scenes features and opinion available via computer, tablet or smart phone.

The channel comes as Pro Bull Riders said its coverage on CBS Sports would be expanding this year to 52 telecasts from the PBR 25th Anniversary Tour that will be aired on either CBS or CBS Sports Network.

The PBR 25th Anniversary Tour launched this weekend (Jan. 5-7) with the Monster Energy Buck Off at the Garden in New York’s Madison Square Garden.

”Complementing our great TV offering on CBS and CBS Sports Network, we are excited to announce that our new digital streaming service, RidePass, will launch in February 2018,” PBR CEO Sean Gleason said during a recent news event.
 
“We have been working diligently to create a robust digital platform that will provide fans with more live bull riding action, spanning multiple PBR tours, as well as original programming exclusive to RidePass.”

Not limited to PBR events, Gleason said that RidePass would also bring “other live western lifestyle sports and original content to members.“

Marketing partners and sponsors will be integrated in to RidePass programming and events.

National partners include Bass Pro Shops, Caterpillar,Cooper Tires, Ford, Jack Daniel’s. Kawasaki, Visit Las Vegas, MGM Grand Las Vegas, Monster Energy and Wranger.

A preview spot offers highlights of action interspersed with some details of what RidePass will offer:

• Stay on top of the latest news, insight, and opinion from the top PBR and Rodeo personalities from around the world.

• Catch live action you can't get anywhere else: PBR 25th Anniversary Tour, Global Cup and Velocity and international tours!

• Dive deeper into the world of rodeo and western sports with new scripted and original series, as well as documentaries on your favorite riders and bulls.

According to Gleason, “RidePass is just one of many ways we continue to invest to ensure that PBR — and now other complementary western lifestyle sports — are accessible to our fans.

“While the first few events of the year will not be broadcast digitally as we prepare for the February launch, I am confident that you will be pleased with RidePass as a comprehensive experience for the most passionate fans in sports,” said Gleason.

PBR did not yet indicate which events would be the first to air exclusively on RidePass.

The PBR 25th Anniversary Tour upcoming schedule includes the Chicago Invitational (Jan. 13-14), The Express Employment Pro Invitational (Oklahoma City, Jan. 20-21), Wrangler Long Live Cowboys Classic (Sacramento, Jan. 26-28), the Anaheim Invitational (Feb. 2-3), the Caterpillar Classic (Kansas, Mo., Feb. 9-11), the St. Louis Invitational (Feb. 17-18), the Winstar World Casino and Resort Iron Cowboy Powered by Kawasaki (Arlington, Texas, Feb. 24-25) and the Pro Bull Riders Batboy Lowdown (North Little Rock, Ark., March 2-3).
