The Halifax County School System has invested in technology in which fans of the Northwest Vikings and Southeast Trojans can follow their teams through live streaming.
The NFHS Network will air games of Northwest Collegiate Technical Academy and Southeast Collegiate Prep Academy.
The network also brings sporting events from across the nation to popular streaming devices for an annual pass of $69.99 or a monthly pass of $10.99.
“The ability to stream events is an absolute game-changer for us,” said Superintendent Eric Cunningham. “We are now on an even playing field with the other surrounding schools. I personally am absolutely thrilled to be able to bring this option to our fans and give our student-athletes the opportunity to showcase their skills before a wider audience.”
Chris Beneck, director of technology, said, “Having the ability to live stream our sporting events is an awesome step forward for Halifax County athletics. We are so proud of our athletes and coaches and excited to allow fans from anywhere access to games from their own homes.”
Current plans call for football, volleyball, and basketball home games to be broadcast, with the possibility of streaming select games from other outdoor sports based on weather and other considerations.
Scheduling conflicts will be resolved by reviewing several factors, including
whether an event is against a conference opponent, postseason implications, and available bandwidth.
