PAWTUCKET, R.I. – The Little East Conference (LEC), in conjunction with official video streaming partner Stretch Internet, announced that fans can now access live or on demand LEC games from all eight primary member institutions through custom applications on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV. Using the professionally-designed, intuitive interface, fans can easily view a conference-wide schedule of live, upcoming, and on-demand broadcasts – or filter by a specific institution.
A leader in digital content, the LEC is the first to launch these free, league-wide services in New England. The LEC's Roku channel was successfully launched this past spring, while desktop and mobile viewers can still stream live at www.LittleEast.tv.
"The Little East Conference continues to innovate with our strategic partners to provide our membership a comparative advantage in the student-athlete experience, institutional recruitment, and parent and alumni engagement.", said Cora H. Brumley, Commissioner. "These platforms provide additional viewing options for the LEC's fan base to have the best possible remote viewing experience."
"We're excited to help the Little East Conference continue to innovate and provide dynamic ways for their fans to engage with content," said Stretch Internet President & CEO Ryan Ermeling. "These apps will create a TV-like experience with high-quality video that will rival content even from traditional linear channels. It's a great time to be a fan of the Little East!"
Through these devices and their custom built apps, fans can seamless access content directly on their TVs – with no need to "relay" or "cast" the stream from tablets, phones, or desktop computers.
