WIAC partners with Hudl to launch ‘WIAC Network’

The Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference announced that it has entered into an official partnership with Hudl, formerly known as BlueFrame Technology. Hudl will partner with the WIAC and its eight member institutions to launch the “WIAC Network,” an end-to-end digital network available online (www.wiacnetwork.com) and across custom WIAC streaming applications for TV and mobile devices.

Hudl will power the WIAC streaming network for the next three years.

“The conference is thrilled to partner with Hudl for the WIAC Network. Anyone interested in watching WIAC action will now have one location to access all of our streamed events,” said WIAC Commissioner Danielle Harris.

In addition to advanced distribution technology and streaming apps, the WIAC and its member schools will utilize Hudl’s Production Truck software to produce and stream broadcasts. Production Truck will allow schools and the conference to insert graphics and produce their broadcasts professionally and easily.

“We’re proud of being able to help schools bring their games to where their fans are,” said Ben Kant, head of streaming at Hudl. “We believe in making every moment count, and easy-to-use livestreaming creates more visibility for athletes and schools, no matter where or when they play.”

The WIAC Network is available and will provide fans the ability to watch all contests from around the conference via a custom network website, mobile apps (iOS and Android) and Apple TV. Additional streaming TV devices, including Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Roku will be available soon.
