"The Polo Life" will reach over 60 million households across a national audience and debut Labor Day weekend on the TVG Network, which focuses on equestrian sports. In addition to the national broadcast, the show will air on ThePalmBeaches.tv and be available in Palm Beach County hotels and resorts, as well as on content provider Roku. USPAGL will place the show in many of the 1,000 U.S. Polo Assn. retail stores that span 100 countries, as well as on multiple digital platforms including the company's website at www.uspolo.org, reaching millions of consumers and sports fans globally.
