PackTV is the new name for NC State’s sports television station

Wolfpack Sports Television is out, and PackTV is in as the new name of NC State’s 24-hour sports television station onpacktvChannel 32.2.

OIT Media and Student Services plans to launch PackTV on Apple TV and Roku this fall to reach even more viewers and renamed the channel to alleviate confusion between Wolfpack Sports Television and Wolfpack Sports Properties, which manages broadcast rights for NC State Athletics. On demand events and live programming will be offered this fall.

In mid April, Wolfpack Sports Television employees conducted a Twitter poll to allow its followers to vote on the channel’s new name from four possible choices. PackTV won 79% of the votes. PackTV also has a new channel logo that features three wolves, symbolizing varsity, club and intramural sports coverage on the cable channel. For more information, visit PackTV.
