Scots’, Prairie Fire Basketball Free on the Web

From WGIL radio:

Midwest Conference commissioner Chris Graham informed the member schools this week of Webcast provider Penn Atlantic’s decision to offer free access to the conference’s men’s and women’s basketball games. Previously, fans paid a nominal fee to watch their team on the Web.

“When we first entered into live video Webcasting two years ago, we did so with the hope we could provide the service free of charge someday to our families, alumni and loyal fans,” said Graham. “While we are only in the early stages of testing the response to free Webcasts, I am confident that the results will allow us to continue the service indefinitely. We are in the midst of an exciting time for the Midwest Conference and media technology.”

Game availability will include all league games, although non-conference games may be available on a school-by-school basis.
