If you live in the United States and purchase a subscription you will have to wait 12 hours after the Wrangler NFR airs on the CBS Sports Network in order to watch the event. But, if you live anywhere else in the world you can watch the 2019 NFR in real-time from Las Vegas every single night from December 5th to the 14th. The PRCA is trying to grow their international audience and make it easy for fans from New Zealand to Mexico to be able to tune into the WNFR.
We can effectively reach our fan base with unique, live programming in a way that’s never been done before,” PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman said. “And that’s pretty cool.”
The PRCA made a great decision to create their own entity to stream their content so that they could retain the rights to all of their content. Owning their own content is vital in 2019 because then they can monetize it in any way they see fit.
Creating their own service allows the PRCA to put more money back into its organization and continue to grow the sport of rodeo for all future cowboys and rodeo fans. The PRCA is dedicated to continuing to grow the Las Vegas NFR and creating ProRodeoTV is a great way to increase their viewership numbers to entice more sponsors.
“This is not only an opportunity to put more rodeo content at the disposal of our fans, but also a way to bring more money into the PRCA, which benefits the hard-working members of our association,” Stressman said. “ProRodeoTV is the future, and the future is now.”
The Pro Rodeo TV is not just great for watching the current rodeos, you can watch old clips as well. The PRCA has used a lot of resources and time to digitize old rodeo videos that subscribers to Rodeo TV channel can watch. The Pro Rodeo TV has footage and clips dating back to the 1959 National Finals Rodeo. If you are a fan of rodeo then you have to get the subscription so you can check out all of the incredible historical footage.
ProRodeo TV even airs events such as the Canadian National Finals Rodeo (CFR), which takes place from October 30 – November 4, 2019, in Alberta, Canada. This is the only place that you can watch the event unless you live in Canada. If the rodeo is not being aired on the CBS Sports Network and you live in the United States then you can watch the event live and you do not have to wait the mandatory 12 hour period.
Everyone in rodeo is excited about the NFR TV channel and it will continue to help grow the sport of rodeo and ensure that all of the Cowboys will be well taken care of. The subscription-based service is the best way to watch all of the PRCA sanctioned rodeos all over the US and it only costs $80 a year which is incredibly cheap. Make sure that you subscribe as soon as possible so you can start watching the PRCA’s next rodeo!
