Volleyball Win Over NAU Now Available on Big Sky TV

Sept. 15, 2006

GREELEY, Colo. - The Northern Colorado volleyball team started its inaugural season in the Big Sky Conference play with a 3-1 victory over Northern Arizona on Thursday night at the Campus Recreation Center. Tape delayed footage of that match is now available at BigSkyTV.org.

Due to the incomplete renovation of Butler-Hancock Sports Pavilion, Thursday's match was moved to the Campus Recreation Center and due to technical logistics the match was unavailable live on BigSkyTV.org. The match can now be accessed in its entirety at the subscription site.

The rest of the Bears schedule, including home matches that will be back Butler-Hancock Sports Pavilion starting on Sept. 28, can be viewed live with the service.

This season all Big Sky Conference games for football, volleyball, men's basketball and women's basketball in league venues will be available on demand through internet streaming on BigSkyTV.org. When watching the games, fans can listen to the radio audio from either home or visiting team.

For $99.99 per year, fans have access to events from all conference teams. If fans want to just watch Northern Colorado events for the year, they can choose the $59.99 package. If fans want access to a month's worth of events, they can pay $49.99 for conference-wide events or $39.99 for a single team's events. Individual events cost $6.99. Revenues from subscriptions to the Northern Colorado feed go to the athletic department.
