Big Rapids, Mich. - For the fifth consecutive year, Ferris State
University fans around the world will have an opportunity to watch
selected Bulldog Athletics contests throughout the year live
Over the past four seasons, fans have been able to watch Bulldog events via a pay-per-view broadband agreement with B2 Networks. The company has recently announced several major changes that will provide better broadband broadcasting services.
In August, B2 merged with America One Television and the live broadband has been rebranded AmericaOne.com. This combination enables the company to reach more people by marketing the college broadband initiative to wider television audiences and future opportunities for nationally-televised games.
America One has teamed up with FSU to again provide live video streaming for all Bulldog home football, volleyball, hockey along with men's and women's basketball games during the 2010-11 athletics season.
Selected road events will be shown via America One if that opponent is part of the network family. America One currently has webcast agreements with a number of Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) and Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) institutions.
Presently, America One offers a FSU all-sports season pass for a cost of $125. A football-only season pass for Bulldog football games is $40 with other season packages to be announced. The single-game cost of a pay-per-view broadcast remains at $7.00 each.
Ferris State's broadband broadcasts feature video from the team's videographer along with audio from the team's official play-by-play broadcaster. Volleyball audio is carried from the public address system. Video from selected events is provided by Ferris Television for any contest they carry.
Broadcasts will be available for purchase from the school's official America One page (see below) with links provided for respective contests on the official FSU Athletics Website at www.ferrisstatebulldogs.com.
The first official FSU broadcasts via America One begin this weekend (Sept. 3-4) with all four Bulldog home volleyball matches in the Ferris State Invitational slated to be carried live in addition to the 2010 football season opener at Hillsdale on Friday evening.
