To give fans the ability to watch some athletic events, the athletics department will be video streaming for selected home games this year.

Assistant Athletic Director for Communication Trey Reed started the streaming network to give more friends and family a chance to watch the games.

“A lot of parents and family will not be able to attend all of their home game,” he said.

Some players said they were looking forward to the video streaming.

Destinee Williamson, criminal justice, sophomore, a starting forward for soccer team said, “This is cool. It gets people informed when they’re not going to be there, and I know my parents won’t be able to make all my games, so gives them a chance to catch the games at home. ”

Sirvell Ford, a criminal justice sophomore and starting strong safety said, “It’s a great thing, this’ll give us more exposure and be able to get more competition. I know that this will actually make me have to give more a full-out effort.”

The network will have a total of 64 web streams covering 56 home dates and will be broadcast over a new pay-per-view network  utilizing a high definition signal.

The all-sports pass will give all 64 games for $75. Season passes are available, men’s and women’s basketball will cost $30 for each, men’s and women’s soccer $25 each, for volleyball $25, $20 for softball and $20 for football. Single games will cost $9.

Andrew Power and Len Smith will be covering commentary for the men’s and women’s soccer games. Pete Stein (play-by-play) and Chris Kutter (color commentary) will be the announcers for all football and basketball games.
