Emerson, IA- The Iowa High School Sports Network (IHSSN) has been providing live coverage of boys’ state championship games since 2005 and starting with this year’s state baseball championships they will be introducing a pay-per-view platform for streaming devices.
The IHSSN has added nearly 30 live events these past two years according to Alan DeBolt, the Executive Director at IHSSN. DeBolt believes this new platform will allow the IHSSN to evolve its product,
“Our goal is to continue to expand and improve the quality of our offerings. This business decision will allow us to keep moving down that path.”
An important note is that the broadcasts will still be available for free and still live through its Iowa cable and broadcast television affiliates. The change will occur with the streaming devices (i.e., phone desktop, iPad, etc.) as they will now require a fee for single games/matches or the entire championship tournament.
There will be no monthly or yearly subscriptions and the user controls what sporting events they would like to purchase.
You can download the free “Watch IHSSN” app on iOS and Android devices along with Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Roku. You can watch on up to two devices with your IHSSN account, which you can create on www.ihssn.com. The price for a single game/match will be $9.99 and a tournament pass will cost $18.99, which gives you access to all of the championship games or matches.
