Ravens fans will have access to a number of Ravens Productions videos and live-streamed programming, including Ravens Report, Ravens Wired, Ravens Unscripted and Final Drive. Live press conferences, historical content and behind-the-scene videos will also be available.
“The ability to distribute our Emmy Award-winning video content via an over-the-top platform is an important step forward in reaching Ravens fans in their home no matter where they live,” Senior Vice President of Ravens Media Michelle Andres said in a statement. “The availability of our programming on-demand from the living room couch is an entertainment and convenience play for our fans.”
