PLAINVIEW, NY and ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/12/13 -- NeuLion, Inc. (TSX: NLN), the leading enabler and provider of live and on-demand content to Internet-connected devices, and Bright House Networks today announced at The Cable Show in Washington D.C. the signing of a new multi-year partnership agreement that will provide local high school sports fans with an immersive and professionally delivered digital sports network. Powered by the NeuLion TV Everywhere Platform, the new online destination will offer fans access to their favorite Florida high school sports content like never before on multiple devices including PCs, smartphones and tablets.
Beginning in August 2013, Bright House Sports Network will stream its "Game of the Week" broadcasts on www.bhsn.com. This exciting new addition to www.bhsn.com will change the way fans, students and parents interact with high school sporting events. With every video available in real-time HD quality, viewers will feel like they are live at the event. Additionally, the NeuLion player will allow viewers to 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 will now be able to 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. After NeuLion receives the live feed of the game from Bright House Sports Network, it will be reformatted to work on the appropriate device and promptly delivered to PC, smartphone and tablets.
"Bright House Sports Network is devoted to everything high school sports and we are looking forward to giving our subscribers this incredible, interactive high school sports experiences," said Elliott Wiser, Vice President, News and Local Programming, Bright House Networks. "High school students have always been early adopters of new technology, and working with NeuLion gives us the opportunity to play off of that as we provide athletes and parents an all new way to experience the game anytime, anywhere."
"The gap between professional sports, college sports and high school sports is closing," said Chris Wagner, Executive Vice President of NeuLion. "High schools can now produce quality video commonly seen in professional sports and deliver it across multiple devices to their fans in local areas. Our partnership with Bright House presents a great opportunity to really take off with high school sports. It's a really exciting time to be a high school student athlete and a parent."
