Boston, MA - Eagle fans now have a new way to see the Boston College sports they love thanks to a new broadband network called ACC Select. The ACC Select network will stream Eagle sports like men's and women's soccer, women's basketball, baseball, volleyball, field hockey, track and ice hockey that are not available through traditional broadcast and cable television distribution. Never before have such a large number of events been streamed in their entirety, giving fans the opportunity to see home and away games live or on-demand whenever and wherever they want.
The Atlantic Coast Conference, in partnership with Raycom Sports and Lincoln Financial Sports, will offer online video streaming of Boston College and all 12 ACC conference school sports during the 2006-2007 school year. All ACC Championship events not currently televised will also be available on the network. The new network is made possible with the production and technical capabilities of Turner Broadcasting.
Eagle fans can visit www.bceagles.com to sign up or view a schedule of events. Fans can watch events live or on-demand on a per-event basis ($3.99 per event) or with an all-event pass which will allow unlimited access to Boston College games and will also allow Eagle fans to check out the competition throughout the ACC. The all-event pass will premiere at a charter price of $5.99 per month.
ACC Select is a new broadband experience that delivers to ACC fans the teams they care about and the games not available anywhere else. With full-screen video delivered right to the computer, ACC Select will provide access to events whenever fans want--live or on-demand. Go to www.accselect.com for complete details and see sports in a whole new way.
