MAJORS REACH DEAL WITH STRETCH INTERNET
JACKSON- The Millsaps Majors have joined Stretch Internet for the 2013-14 sports season and beyond, offering high-quality video and live stats for the Majors' home events.
The Southern Athletic Association will be making a conference wide commitment to Stretch Internet starting next season, but the Majors are making the move a year early.
Stretch Internet will allow the athletics staff to offer live stats for each of the Majors' home events, even if live video is not provided. Fans will also be able to interact throughout the broadcasts with selected games offering live chats and blogs for the fans. The Millsaps Video Portal also gives the Majors a custom designed interface unique to the College.
Broadcasts start at 7.99 per game for the video and there are many season, combo and all-access options for fans to choose from. The live stats will be available at no charge to the user. Fans can find links to the video in the sports schedules, as well as the video links on the GoMajors.com home page.
Stretch Internet, based in Mesa, AZ, was founded in 2003 by a former college athletics media relations professional who saw a need to provide affordable, high-quality streaming to college and university athletic departments. Stretch Internet now works with nearly 300 colleges and universities, high schools and professional sports organizations. A devotion to utilizing the best streaming technology possible and providing a first-class presentation – backed by the best customer support in the business – have helped Stretch Internet become one of the largest streaming media specialists in the sports industry.
