BlueWhiteTV To Launch As First Penn State Dedicated Streaming Service
Have you ever dreamt of a Penn State version of the Longhorn Network? Well, your dreams will come true this August with the launch of BlueWhiteTV, the first and only internet streaming service dedicated to providing Penn Staters with content specifically about Penn State.
The service is scheduled to launch on August 1 and is advertising a promotion with the first three months of your subscription free if you register before the launch date.
BlueWhiteTV compares itself to Netflix and Hulu, but specifically with a Penn State angle. Its promo video also mentioned athletic events on ESPN and Big Ten Network, so they likely plan to stream live sporting events through the service as well.
According to their website, the service is affiliated with The Porterfield Group, creators of films “The People’s Joe,” “365 Days: A Year in Happy Valley,” and “Sanctioned.”
These films will be available with your subscription, along with original programming like “The Bruce Clark Show” about football and other local musings, “Humphrey’s Waters” about fishing and stories with fishing legend Joe Humphreys, “In the Mural with Michael Pilato” about the Inspiration mural in downtown State College, and “Buck Wilde’s Wilderness” about the BBC star’s adventures as a wildlife photographer.
The website also includes the “BlueWhite MarketPlace,” which is an online classified ad section designed to reach a wide audience of Penn Staters.
Pricing for the service starts at $10.99 for a one-year subscription and gives options for up to a five-year subscription, which costs $49.99.
