Great to hear about NSN expanding to a new market/client. Hope they don't forget about little 'ole Norwich now that the Panthers are on board. :)

What about the other school rumored to be working with NSN this season?

Uh, it means done by professionals who know what they are doing ... how hard is that to understand?

Lou is commenting about Oswego's student run broadcast I believe which is also a top notch production.

As far as I have seen, NSN and Oswego's WTOP-TV lead the way by far in Division III hockey video streaming.

Uh, it means done by professionals who know what they are doing ... how hard is that to understand? Not hard to understand at all - but professional does not translate to quality... We call a live 30 min pre-game show with highlights and interviews, an 8 camera production with 3 slomo replay angles and a fully loaded 30 minute post game show streamed online and distributed to a half million Time Warner Cable homes a regular season student production...:D PS - I know a bunch of kids you can hire who can take your show up a notch or two.

IMO WTOP is #1. They make most Division 1 broadcasts look like something you'd find in Division III.

I think they were embarrassed by the difference in quality between what they were putting out and what Norwich and Castleton were providing

I'll be curious to see how this works. The first three games, men's soccer, women's soccer, and field hockey all take place at the same time on three different fields. Fall sports (men's and women's) tend to be all home or all away on the same weekend, so this scheduling conflict will be there every weekend. In the Winter season, women's hockey is usually away when men's hockey is home and vice versa, but the games are usually at the same time. There are often timing conflicts with men's and women's basketball as well.
I'm not a big fan of broadcasting D3 sports in general and home games in particular. People don't need an excuse to stay home. At a small school like Middlebury, it's nice to have a solid student turnout for games. Giving them a choice to watch on line takes away from the crowd support and depletes the spirit and involvement amongst the student body for their teams. I can understand away games, paricularly away playoff games, but broadcasting home games doesn't serve much of a purpose.

If locals can get to the games, they should, but I think you're forgetting some important people, like the parents of the athletes who fork over quite a bit of money for their kids to play. I think they deserve to see them play when they cannot make the trip up.
