The first weekend of action of the new year on MHSAA.tv will feature the five games of the 2019 GottaGetIt Hoops Boys Basketball Classic at Grand Blanc High School on Saturday (Jan. 5) beginning at noon.
Here’s the complete schedule at Grand Blanc:
Benton Harbor won the Class B title last year. Flint Powers, Grand Blanc and Saginaw all drew mention in media preseason rankings this winter.
In its 10th 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. Pixellot – the NFHS Network’s automated streaming solution – is used by schools wishing to live stream games but lacking the ability to staff events. The SBP also gives schools the opportunity to raise money through advertising and viewing subscriptions.
Here’s the upcoming MHSAA.tv schedule of video streams being produced by School Broadcast Program members and the NFHS Network:
Thursday - January 3
Friday - January 4
Saturday - January 5
Monday - January 7
Tuesday - January 8
Check the online schedule throughout the week for late changes.
All sporting events – live or delayed - 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.
NFHS Network subscriptions begin at $9.95 a month. 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. School Broadcast Program participants also are selling Season and Annual Passes at a discounted rate. A portion of every subscription sold by a school goes to benefit its program.
