The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today a partnership with Frontier Communications, making it the team's official residential television and internet provider. As part of the multi-year agreement, the Buccaneers and Frontier will work together to engage fans through integrated marketing initiatives including product and services sweepstakes, Buccaneers-themed street team activations, product demonstrations and unique fan-focused contests.
"I am pleased to welcome Frontier as our newest Pewter Partner. FiOS is already the best home entertainment choice available in our market and Frontier's advanced use of mobile technology will separate them even further from the competition. We look forward to partnering with Frontier as they continue to grow and improve the television and streaming experience through innovation," said Buccaneers Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer.
Along with FiOS TV and Internet services, Frontier will introduce fans to the TV Everywhere mobile app that allows fans with FiOS TV service to stream their favorite shows or games anywhere, anytime on a computer, tablet or mobile device. The app also makes it easy to manage customer accounts on-the-go, choose billing preferences and chat with a Frontier representative. Frontier will staff a hands-on booth at Raymond James Stadium on game day to share more with fans about the TV Everywhere mobile app and everything else Frontier has to offer.
"We are thrilled to be the official TV and internet provider of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Combining FiOS from Frontier with the Bucs creates the perfect combination of speed, reliability and performance," said Frontier Florida Senior Vice-President and General Manager Melanie Williams.
