Bearkat Vision Will Broadcast 26 Basketball Games This Season

By  | 

HUNTSVILLE -- The Sam Houston State athletic department has announced 26 men's and women's basketball games will be broadcast on Bearkat Vision this season with the potential for more games to be added to the schedule.

The schedule will get started Friday afternoon with a free preview of both the men's and women's games. The SHSU women will host Southern Mississippi at noon and the men will take on Schreiner at 3 p.m. No registration will be required to watch either of these two games.

"With both of these games being played during the afternoon, we thought this was a perfect opportunity for people to check in a see the product we will be offering this season," said Director of Athletics Bobby Williams. "The free preview will give all of our fans the chance to watch our games and hopefully purchase the video package."

Of the games on the schedule, 21 will be home games. Through our partnership with Jumptv Sports, at least five other road games will be available to Bearkat Vision subscribers as well. The men's game on Dec. 21 at Louisiana-Lafayette and the women's game on Nov. 16 at Arkansas-Little Rock will be available. Both teams' road games at Texas-San Antonio will air on Bearkat Vision, as well as the men's game on Feb. 25 at McNeese State.

Media Services Coordinator Jason Barfield, along with Charlie Farris of the Bearkat Sports Network and Cody Stark with The Huntsville Item will provide play-by-play and color analysis for all home games this season. Also, select games will be broadcast by TV78, the new cable station in Huntsville, on a tape delay basis with the games airing live on Bearkat Vision.

"With the help of TV78, our broadcasts will have a completely different,
professional look," Barfield said. "They will bring more cameras and a
production element into the broadcast that we are not currently equipped to do on our own."

The games that will be broadcast as a partnership with TV78 will be
determined at a later date. Subscriptions to Bearkat Vision are available
for $7.95 a month and an annual subscription to Bearkat Vision is $69.95.
