When I moved to Montana, I knew it was going to be a little more country than any place I had ever lived before. But, one of the things that surprised me the most was how many people I know made the trek to Las Vegas for the rodeo finals. I didn't realize how big of a thing rodeos were, as far as being a sport that people would travel for! Of course, the popularity makes sense with the outdoors and way of life that I've come to know after living in Montana for a while.

Now, if you're a rodeo fan as we just discussed, you might be familiar with The Cowboy Channel. Again, that one is news to me, can't say I'm familiar. But, this is pretty cool news from an announcement they made today. They're launching The Cowboy Channel Plus app. You'll be able to watch shows that are offered on the regular channel, but it'll include a bunch of extra content as well. And, you guessed it, a lot of the extra features center around rodeo content.

New content, archived footage, news, highlights and more! From the press release, here's some details of what will be available with the app

The Cowboy Channel Plus content will be available via the mobile app (available on Android and iOS), as well as via any browser, smart TV, or device. Viewers will be able to enjoy free access to up-to-the minute news, bios, rodeos, and highlights. Those with a subscription will unlock premium content such as up to 6-simultaneous live rodeo feeds, classic PRCA archived rodeos, The Cowboy Channel video-on-demand programming, and the only place viewers can stream the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (WNFR). The Cowboy Channel Plus is available for only $9.99 a month or save up to 25% and purchase the whole year for $89.99.
