Badgers sports streaming service
Yosemite High School has partnered with online streaming service NFHS Network to provide fans with the ability to watch Badger sports teams live online. All events are taped and produced by students, Athletic Director Rusty Oetinger said, giving them real world experience.
“Fans will have the ability to watch games online whenever and wherever you are with your smart phone, tablet computer, and the Apple TV app,” Oetinger said. “Friends and family members who can’t make the game will never miss a play again.”
For one month of access, fans will be charged $9.95. For an entire year, the cost is $60, and a portion of proceeds from both options goes directly to Yosemite High School.
To register, go to NFHSnetwork.com, search for Yosemite High School, then select the “follow” feature to watch Badger sports.
