With MHSAA winter postseason tournaments beginning this week, MHSAA.tv will provide live video streams of selected events produced by members of the School Broadcast Program.
Team Wrestling takes to the screen on Wednesday and Thursday (Feb. 8-9), with District tournaments being streamed at Comstock Park, East Lansing and Lake Orion.
In its eighth year, the School Broadcast Program gives members an opportunity to showcase excellence in their schools by creating video programming of athletic and non-athletic events, with students gaining skills in announcing, camera operation, directing/producing and graphics.
The program also gives schools the opportunity to raise money through advertising and viewing subscriptions.
All sporting events – Live or On-Demand – are available on a subscription basis only for their first 72 hours online. They become available for free, on-demand viewing approximately 72 hours following their completion.
Here’s the schedule of events School Broadcast Program members plan to stream over the next week for broadcast at MHSAA.tv. (All times Eastern Standard):
Wednesday, Feb. 8
Thursday, Feb. 9
Friday, Feb. 10
Saturday, Feb. 11
Monday, Feb. 13
Tuesday, Feb. 14
Be sure to check the Upcoming Events page at MHSAA.tv for schedule additions every day.
The NFHS Network has announced new pricing for 2016-17, eliminating the Day Pass and lowering the cost of a Month Pass to $9.95. Subscribers will have access to all live video and streaming statistics across the country. All content becomes available for free, on-demand viewing 72 hours after being shown live. Some schools also will be selling Annual Passes at a discounted rate. A portion of every subscription sold by a school goes to benefit its program.
A complete list of participating schools can be found on the School Broadcast Program page of the MHSAA website.
Fans also can access scores of games in-progress on the NFHS Network website via ScoreStream. Click on the Scores button in the upper right corner.
A weekly staple on the MHSAA.tv website and the MHSAASports Channel on YouTube is back for another year with highlights of selected games last week produced by members of the Association’s School Broadcast Program.
This week’s highlights package consists of clips from last week’s boys basketball game Grayling at Charlevoix, a girls basketball game pitting Williamston at East Lansing and a boys basketball game Lowell at Cedar Springs.
