BowlTV.com is the website and video streaming service of the United States Bowling Congress.
USBC has delivered live events, along with additional video content, for more than a decade but the BowlTV.com platform expands the capabilities of USBC and is the place for bowlers to watch, learn and live the sport they love.
What does the latest iteration of BowlTV offer?
Live coverage of events at every level
USBC has livestreamed the biggest bowling events from across the globe and will continue to bring coverage of major events at every level, from youth to senior competition and everything in between.
The overlap of events on the bowling schedule, and the fact events such as the Junior Gold Championships and Intercollegiate Team Championships Sectional Qualifiers not only are held in numerous centers, but different cities, too, no longer is an issue with BowlTV’s multiple channels.
Professional Women’s Bowling Association events, including the USBC Queens and U.S. Women's Open, also will benefit from having numerous channels. BowlTV will be able to cover additional pairs at the events and fans will be able to easily navigate the channels to follow their favorite bowlers.
In addition to a chat feature available for every live event, BowlTV also offers more viewer interaction with the ability to have live polls and interactive contests.
Providing behind-the-scenes content, including expanded video features, make BowlTV the perfect place to tell the stories about the athletes, coaches and other personalities in the sport. We’ll expand our list of contributors to BowlTV and will look to bring fresh ideas to our video content, including video blogs.
Learning the sport
With a world-renowned training and research center at the International Bowling Campus, and access to many of the best coaches in the world, BowlTV will provide coaching tips to help everyone from the beginning bowler to the advanced competitor.
Bowling has a long and storied history and USBC has hundreds of hours of television shows and films that go back more than 50 years. We’ll continue to digitize these historic telecasts, including shows from PWBA broadcasts along with Team USA and World Team Challenge classics, so we can showcase the greatest bowlers in the sport’s history.
Flexibility for viewers
BowlTV.com has a great mix of free and premium subscriber content. Premium subscriptions – 9.95 per month or $79.95 per year (plus transaction fees) – gives consumers the flexibility when it comes to what they want to watch. And all premium subscriptions have a four-day trial period, so customers can check it out and, if they don’t love what BowlTV has to offer, they easily can cancel within the four days with no obligation.
