  • New WCHA TV - Will it be better then the last

    http://www.wcha.com/men/pres1415/201508/aug5wcm.php

    Does anyone know anything about Stretch Internet. Hopefully they are better than Eversport! I was not at all impressed with their performance (or lack of) last season!

    A lot of D-III teams use it. Works fine. But it all depends on bandwidth at the site and camera quality.

      It will all come down to cost for the fans. I can't imagine they'd make it much more expensive than other league streaming options.

        SCSU used stretch Internet their last season before nchc tv. It was AWFUL.

          BSU's D-II sports conference, the NSIC, has used Stretch Internet to show NSIC games for free. I have never had any problems when I have watched a game.

            Was it the Stretch feed that was awful or was the product SCSU gave to Stretch bad? Stretch doesn't hire announcers, producers, camera operators or any of the production crews. They simply provide a platform to enhance and retransmit the product they get from the client.

              UAA used Stretch for a couple of seasons (that was when it was free). It wasn't substantially better than anything else and suffered the same sort of awful buffering that puts you 5 mins or more behind by the end of the game.

                It's all a function of bandwidth and the # of users in the system. If your school does not allocate enough oompf to the stream, you get crap and lots of buffering. Then your provider has to have the capacity to handle a large # of viewers for big games.

                If there is one "No" in the system, then the whole thing falls apart. Plus, your location better have decent cameras with good / HD resolution. Otherwise, you look like you're getting a broadcast from Mars.

                  If their tech is better than "this is the game you watch", I'll be happy. I'm also really curious to see the package pricing, specifically the team-specific stuff. I may do UAH-only this year, as my new marriage and job are going to preclude me from spending as much time watching random league games.

                  I'm curious to see if production values go up around the league, and I'm looking at my alma mater when I say that. I'm aware that our data connection is strapped thanks to our landlords, but we're also running bare-bones on the production end while running zero advertising to make the product revenue-positive. At least our alcoholic incumbent is gone and we have a real announcer coming for 15-16.

                      I'm presuming that your man knows something about hockey. Chris Davis does not.

                        Hockey know how be ****ed, I'll just settle for a guy that doesn't yell at fans about penalty calls during the run of play...

                              I hate doing games, but when I saw just how bad it was, I offered to replace him. What a mess. But now we have a professional TV guy that's done some ACHA work coming in to do it. I'm hopeful.
