The Eli Sports Network is pleased to announce we have become an affiliate of the NFHS (National Federation of High Schools) Network. This partnership will allow Eli Sports to continue our large coverage area of SW Washington and we will be able to add a video element to our broadcasting.
The video through the NFHS Network is a pay-per-view option. Eli Sports Network will continue to off our free audio broadcasts to most of our programming. The NFHS affiliation allows us to simply add a feature we don’t already have but have been working hard to provide.
Our first taste of presenting live Video Broadcasting will be at the 2A State Basketball Tournament in Yakima. We hope to have as many games as possible as we team with another affiliate for coverage from Yakima. Between the two of us our goal is to get every single game video streamed, but it is unlikely at this time. Our partnership literally has come together in less than a week and we are gearing up to learn and provide streams as quickly as possible.
We will still be offering live and free audio streams of several games or links to games that other radio stations will be doing. The affiliate opportunity with NFHS offers us additional opportunities during the regular season. We will be able to offer live video broadcasts of Games and Events of all kinds. Everything from an important Football Game to a large Invitational Track Meet.
We will continue to write our own stories, take large amounts of still photo’s, and the free live audio broadcasts. We hope to offer a new look website beginning next fall as well. We will be further simplifying our site but will continue to keep it free with no pay-wall, easy to use, no account sign-up, no passwords just click on and go at it. Our sponsors will continue to be a big part of what we do and without them there is no Eli Sports although we will continue to make sure our ads don’t attack you. We hope you notice this and we hope if and when you get a chance to please support our sponsors.
This is yet the next step ESN is taking in our journey to be one of the places you can rely on for great coverage of High School sports. We look forward in bringing you more coverage as we continue to grow.
