by Gianmarc Manzione 0

New package offers up to 15 months of access for the price of 12 months

The Professional Bowlers Association’s exclusive online video-streaming service, Xtra Frame, is now offering PBA fans around the world a front row seat to an expanded 2015 season through a new Xtra Frame Season Ticket, which will provide subscribers with up to 15 months of access for the price of 12 months, plus a copy of the new 2015 PBA Yearbook.

The Xtra Frame Season Ticket will provide fans with more than 60 hours of live coverage of the PBA World Series of Bowling VI, similar coverage of WSOB VII in 2015, and a 24/7 package of more than 300 hours of live “online television” at a subscription price of $64.99 at the cost of a 12-month subscription. Everyone who enrolls in the XF Season Ticket program by no later November 30 will receive access to Xtra Frame through December 31, 2015.

Beyond PBA’s packages of ESPN and CBS Sports Network television programs, which are available to cable television viewers in the United States, Xtra Frame will expand coverage of the stars of the PBA in action in a new series of seven exclusive PBA Tour Xtra Frame tournaments, full coverage of the PBA50 Tour plus the PBA’s first live coverage of an event from Japan, the DHC PBA Japan Invitational, January 13-18.

“I always tell our fans they can see all of the action more than ever, from anywhere in the world, on Xtra Frame,” said PBA Hall of Famer Norm Duke, “and my mother is the biggest Xtra Frame fan. She never misses a shot.”

Xtra Frame, which is an integral part of the comprehensive PBA Network, also allows fans an opportunity to watch historic PBA Tour telecasts from previous seasons through its extensive archive of more than 100 telecasts, new product videos from PBA’s Product Registered partners, instructional videos, interviews with PBA stars and more.

“Xtra Frame has grown in popularity every year as we have expanded live coverage of PBA competition at all levels,” said PBA Commissioner Tom Clark. “Xtra Frame has become a cornerstone of the PBA, giving PBA fans around the world unique access to the best of the PBA, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

As a special bonus, XF Season Ticket subscribers who enroll by the November 30 deadline will receive a copy of the new 2015 PBA Yearbook by mail when it is published in January.
