SAINT LEO, Fla. – Tonight's season-opening men's and women's games will signal the start of the Lions' newest partnership with Stretch Internet as the Lions' Game Central Portal debuts out at University Field.
Fans can access the portal here – http://client.stretchinternet.com/client/saintleo.portal#
Links will go live with Eddie 'The Eagle' Kenny approximately five minutes before kickoff of each game.
Stretch Internet is a familiar name to fans of the Lions as they helped launch the Saint Leo Lions AudioCast Network with audio-only broadcasts back in 2005. The original agreement allowed Saint Leo to expose a developing competitive product to a national audience through broadcasts using landline and cellular telephone technology. Since the original partnership, Stretch has expanded their offering into live video streaming featuring the Game Central portal, a place where Lions' fans can access any and all game information within a single, polished Saint Leo-branded interface complete with on-screen graphics.
As has been the case since the first broadcast in 2005, all video and audio streaming content will continue to be free of charge with added usability via mobile streaming to the Apple iOS platform - which includes iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices - and to Android and other mobile devices that support Flash. For the first time ever, archived versions of select sporting events will also be available, allowing DVR-style functionality to fans that can't watch or listen live.
