BALTIMORE - Beginning with Monday night's women's soccer game against the University of Maryland, Loyola University Maryland will offer free video of most home athletic events for the 2011-2012 season.
"We are very excited to offer free video streaming for our fans, parents, alumni and friends of Loyola athletics," Assistant Vice President/Director of Athletics Jim Paquette said. "We have offered a great product in the past, and this is the next step in increasing our viewership. This allows a wider group of fans to watch our games as we continue to expand the brand of Loyola athletics."
Loyola will partner with Stretch Internet to provide the content. In addition to free streaming video, the department will continue to offer free audio of games, and it will provide live stats through the Stretch Internet portal.
Stretch Internet's video player will show the contest's live stats in a window next to the action, thus eliminating the need to open multiple links to obtain information.
In addition to the free video, all Loyola games that are being broadcast will be available on a variety of smart phones including iPhone, Android and select Blackberry devices. Video, audio and live stats will be available on phone browsers.
Loyola will broadcast all non-televised home contests of men's and women's soccer, basketball and lacrosse, and select volleyball matches.
As in the past, links to games will be available for the live content on www.LoyolaGreyhounds.com. Visit the schedule on the lower-right side of the home page, the sports' home pages or game preview stories for the links.
