NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Norwich University announced a new partnership with BlueFrame Technology on Monday to enable Norwich University to live video stream over 100 athletic events during the 2019-20 season.
The new portal link to watch your favorite Cadet athletic teams in action for home contests will be www.norwichathletics.com/livestream. You can also find video links for all games, home or away, through each team's individual schedule page on www.norwichathletics.com.
"We're extremely proud to partner with BlueFrame Technology for the upcoming academic year," said Norwich University Director of Athletic Communications Derek Dunning. "BlueFrame's product is customized for sports streaming and meets the needs of our office and the athletic department to enable our fan base to virtually support our student-athletes."
For the last 10 years, Norwich has worked with Northeast Sports Network (NSN) as its exclusive streaming provider. Although Norwich will no longer be partnering with NSN for athletic video streaming, NSN will provide coverage of select campus events throughout the course of the year.
"I'd like to thank everyone at NSN, including Eric Berry, Ryan McDonald, Adam Largess and Jordan Royer for a very successful partnership over the last decade," Dunning said. "We were one of their first clients when they started out back in 2009 and they have provided us with first-class service. The streaming market is dynamic and BlueFrame meets our requirements today. The Athletic Communications team is excited to expand our role and athletic video-streaming coverage."
