Samsung has announced that an update is coming to its Samsung Milk Music streaming application that will allow users to stream live audio broadcasts from their favorite college football and basketball teams. Starting on September 3, users will find a new sports section in the genre dial that will allow them to browse the different live broadcasts.
Users will be able to stream over 900 different football games and championships from 122 universities. The exact colleges were not announced but it does sound like most of the NCAA will be included in this new feature in Samsung Milk Music. Additionally, come basketball season in November, you will also be able to stream over 3000 games from 137 NCAA teams. All of the different broadcasts will be found in the sports genre on the dial and will allow you to browse through live and future games. Also on the dial will be live scores for the game you are streaming.
From what we are being told, you will be able to stream from wherever you are which means there shouldn't be any issues with content blackouts based on your location. Later this year, Samsung plans to stream pre and post shows for each game as well as adding sports talk content from CBS Radio National Sports Talk shows. Unfortunately, the Samsung Milk Music application is still only available for Samsung phones and tablets, but the service is free if you do happen to own one.
