Many Husky sports events now available via webcast

- September 24, 2007

A new multimedia Internet platform called Husky All-Access has been launched by the Division of Athletics, in conjunction with College Sports Television Inc.

The new service provides video webcasting of various UConn sporting events and press conferences. It is sponsored by AT&T.

The service is available via a link on UConnHuskies.com – the official website of the Division of Athletics. Each event shown live on Husky All-Access will also be archived for future viewing.

The subscription fee is $9.95 per month, and $79.95 for a 12-month subscription.

“We are very pleased to be adding this new service to our website offerings,” says Jeffrey Hathaway, director of athletics.

“Video webcasting is an ever-growing technology and we think UConn fans will enjoy seeing a variety of events.”

Coverage plans during the fall call for a number of live UConn games in the sports of men’s and women’s soccer, field hockey, and volleyball.

Head football coach Randy Edsall’s Tuesday press conference before each game will be webcast, as will his post-game press conference after home games.

Plans also call for the webcasting of men’s and women’s basketball post-game press conferences.

Entire game replays and game highlight packages for men’s basketball and football will be part of the offering as well, as part of the Big East Conference’s agreement with ESPN.

In the winter, there will be live women’s ice hockey, with baseball, softball, and women’s lacrosse offered in the spring.

Men’s ice hockey will not be part of the package, but will be webcast through a new agreement between the Atlantic Hockey Association and B2 Networks.
