Release Courtesy of Northeast-10 Conference
COLCHESTER, Vt. - The Northeast-10 Conference is excited to announce the inaugural season of NE10 NOW, a new high-quality streaming service for fans across the country to watch sporting events of the league's 15 member institutions throughout the academic year. Beginning on Nov. 9, NE10 NOW will be live for the start of the men's and women's basketball seasons before transitioning to men's and women's lacrosse in the spring. It is part of a three-year release plan that will eventually introduce all 24 NE10 sports to the network.
The NE10 has partnered with Stretch Internet, expanding its relationship with PrestoSports to include a comprehensive, conference-wide video streaming service for athletic and campus events - gaining the ability to broadcast each of the events on the custom-developed NE10 NOW. The network will be available for use on Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Roku. In addition, the NE10 will partner with BlueFrame Technology to provide production truck software to all 15 member schools. Each institution will utilize the software to more easily and professionally produce content for the league's new streaming platform. Once NE10 NOW is fully implemented, member schools will stream more than 1,500 productions annually across the wide spectrum of 24 varsity sports that the NE10 offers.
Through the new NE10 NOW service, Saint Michael's is partnering with Northeast Sports Network (NSN), which will produce the events for broadcast through the Stretch platform. Vermont-based NSN, which also enters its seventh school year as the exclusive streaming home for Saint Michael's men's ice hockey, webcasts high school and NCAA Division I, II and III college events throughout the state, and was founded in 2006 with the intent to provide local athletes the same coverage as that provided to top collegiate and professional athletes.
