an unmet demand for families and fans to view live sports on massive movie theater screens
and are thrilled to be selected as their livestreaming partner.”

are the next great frontier for live sporting events, and we are elated with this unprecedented
agreement with ESPN. We look forward to bringing these games to ACC football fans. We
believe that theaters have the ability to generate excitement around live sporting events. These
events will replicate the feel of a football stadium experience as fans gather and fill theaters to
watch the games on the big screen. As we move forward, we hope to add games from
additional college football conferences as well as other live sporting events.”

The ESPN and Theater Sports Network agreement covers the New Year’s Six Bowl games
including the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic, the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl,
