“Our programs are host based, taped live in the studio or on location at all major sporting events such as the: The World Series, Super Bowl, PGA, NASCAR, All Star Games, NBA and NCAA Finals just to name a few. Sports celebrities are a common feature during our programming day thus giving major names the opportunity to sell product. SSTV will go behind the scenes at major sporting events giving viewers a chance to speak directly to their favorite player, coaches, sportscasters and writers,” said Wiggins.
The show is expected to reach more than 90 million households and the company is planning international distribution through its major collaborators across the globe.

On the web site, customers can actively seek and buy specific items of interest, including travel packages. In addition, SSTV will conduct interviews with many of the top athletes and former sports legends.
