Some local prep teams available live on the NFHS Network/MHSAA.TV
EAST LANSING — The excitement of high school sports hits living rooms this fall as the NFHS Network has released a Roku channel, joining the availability of games on computers and handheld devices.
Once on the Roku channel, typing “Michigan” into the search box will display lists of live, on-demand and upcoming events involving MHSAA member schools. You can also bookmark your favorite schools.
Nearly 600 events fill the coming week’s schedule for the NFHS Network and MHSAA.TV, as football joins the boys soccer and girls volleyball activity.
More games than ever before will be available online beginning this season, with approximately 270 MHSAA member schools taking part in the School Broadcast Program with Pixellots units being installed at their athletic facilities or schools still producing games using traditional hands-on student crews.
Pixellot is the NFHS Network’s automated production solution. Nearly 500 Pixellot units are already installed or about to be installed in high school stadiums and gymnasiums around the state. The NFHS Network has been offering schools up to two free Pixellot units since early July; with the schools only needing to cover the installation costs.
Several U.P. schools have Pixellot units installed at their school. The schools that do are: Calumet, Chassell, Dollar Bay, Escanaba, Gladstone, North Dickinson, Ishpeming, Kingsford, Marquette, Munising, Negaunee, Norway and St. Ignace.
Additionally, MHSAA regulations regarding live video broadcasts and streaming have been relaxed during the pandemic to allow schools to use their choice of means to distribute games to fans who are unable to attend because of government-imposed spectator limits.
Nearly 275 varsity events will be available on the NFHS Network/MHSAA.TV, this week. Monthly subscriptions are $10.99.
Fans can also type their school name into the search field on the MHSAA.TV page to search for events.
