Bright House Sports Network to offer streaming of 130 Florida high school games

Live and On Demand Content Available on Multiple Devices

Orlando, Fla. (August 5, 2013) –The high school sports season is about to kick into high gear, and Bright House Networks is making sure its customers don’t miss a second of their favorite Florida high school sports teams in action.  Bright House Sports Network will team with NeuLion this fall to offer live and on demand streaming of Florida high school games including select Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) state finals.  The content will be available online, as well as on iPhones, iPads, and select Android phones at no additional charge.

Bright House Sports Network will stream a total of sixty regular season and seventy state finals games during the 2013-2014 school year, including forty football games along with twenty other sports, including volleyball, basketball and baseball.  The network will feature top high schools from throughout both the Tampa and Central Florida viewing areas, including Jesuit, Freedom, Armwood, Apopka, Dr. Phillips and Bishop Moore.

Beginning in August, Bright House Sports Network will stream its football “Game of the Week” broadcasts on www.bhsn.com. With every video available in real-time HD quality, viewers will feel like they are live at the event. Additionally, viewers can pause, rewind and re-watch a game immediately after it is over and see instant highlights made possible by NeuLion’s live editing software. For parents of high school athletes, this new addition to www.bhsn.com serves as an immediate benefit, as they can now relive key moments and plays with interactive DVR controls, including slow motion, or watch a game they may have missed on-demand no matter where they are.

Following is the Bright House Sports Network Game of the Week schedule through early October:
