BRISTOL, Tenn. – King University, along with Conference Carolinas partnered with BlueFrame Technology. BlueFrame Technology will be home to the Conference Carolinas Digital network where King and the other 10 member schools will live stream their contests, starting with the 2018-19 season.
Conference Carolinas, in partnership with BlueFrame Technology, is pleased to announce the brand new Conference Carolinas Digital Network. The Conference Carolinas Digital Network will feature content from the conference office and all 11 Conference Carolinas members.
"This is a great partnership for King and Conference Carolinas," Director of Athletic Communications Travis Chell said. "The ease of access for fans is really important for King, and this will help fans access the live streams in many different avenues."
Starting August 30 fans can find all the action on www.conferencecarolinasdn.com and on The Conference Carolinas Digital Network apps for Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, and Roku. The live-first app design provides fans of Conference Carolinas easy access to the timeliest content from across the entire network. Each member has its own channel in the app, and the app's user-configurable interface allows viewers to efficiently search through archived broadcasts.
"We are extremely proud about offering the new Conference Carolinas Digital Network to fans," said Assistant Commissioner Sharod Williams. "As a Conference, we wanted to provide all of our content in one centralized place and BlueFrame allowed us that opportunity. We also understand the new generation of streaming, so we knew providing the four OTT apps was going to be important in making our content consumable anywhere by anyone."
In addition to the live sporting events, The Conference Carolinas Digital Network will work to develop programming focused on highlighting community service, as well as athletic and academic success of its student-athletes and member institutions. The use of social media platforms in addition to the Conference Carolinas portals will be utilized to promote and distribute this content.
"We are excited to partner with Conference Carolinas to build its new digital network," said Josh Braun, Director of Sales at BlueFrame Technology. "The feedback from the conference as a whole was that they wanted a platform that could provide the OTT apps and a centralized platform for all member schools. BlueFrame's technology met perfectly with these needs and became the right choice for their network."
