"Our agreement with FASTHockey not only provides us with the tools we need to raise the profile of our league but ensures our fans will have a first-rate experience watching games at home," said BCHL commissioner John Grisdale. "We'll continue to allow users to not only see live BCHL games but also get caught up on the latest highlights from around the league."
Viewers will be treated to a world-class platform boasting breathtaking video, instant game archival for Video-On-Demand playback, advanced player features like pause, rewind, and fast-forward for live games, user-generated instant replays, and full social integration. Also, they will be able to choose from home and away broadcasts so they can truly have a professional viewing experience.
"We are incredibly excited to partner with the BCHL," said Marc Ruskin, President of FASTHockey, "Providing BCHL fans with a high quality experience, from video delivery through an array of interactive tools, will help support the league's digital media initiatives and provide the teams and players with some great tools for promotion and advancement."
FASTHockey will have each BCHL rink outfitted with up-to-date streaming video hardware and in addition to the regular season and playoffs, will carry all 16 games at the inaugural Showcase event in Chilliwack September 7 to 9, 2012. The BCHL League Office and its member teams will take advantage of FASTHockey's Content Editing and Syndication Suite empowering users to cut, share, and syndicate clips to their websites, blogs, and popular social media platforms.
