rp_primary_Video_Streaming_BasketballNORFOLK, Va. – Season streaming packages for both men’s and women’s basketball are now available through the Norfolk State Athletics website. Every home game for both teams during the 2015-16 season can be seen live on computers, tablets and smartphones.

The season pass for the men goes for $45, a savings of $10 off the collective game-by-game price. It gives fans access to all 11 home games for the Spartan men’s team during the year.

The women’s season pass goes for $50, also a savings of $10 off the collective game-by-game price. The NSU women will play 12 games at home during the year, including the exhibition on Nov. 9 against Virginia Union.

All games will be available through the Spartan Showcase Video Streaming link, which can be found at www.nsuspartans.com/watch and on the main athletics page or either sport’s home page under the Multimedia tab at the top. The link is also available among the social ads in the top right above the website’s main navigation, or in the Spartans All-Access ad to the right of the main story pictures.

Along with desktop and laptop computers, the Spartan Showcase Video Streaming webpage is also accessible via all Android and Apple tablets and smartphones. Fans can watch any live or on-demand Norfolk State athletics event while on-the-go.

Sidearm Sports, the host of NSU’s athletics website, also announced new features to its video streaming services that began this year. Each broadcast will now have a desktop DVR function, allowing fans to pause, rewind and fast forward at their convenience within the live event.

In addition, each contest will automatically be available in the on-demand video section of the Spartan Showcase Video Streaming webpage immediately after the conclusion of the event.

Instead of a season pass, fans can also purchase single-game and doubleheader passes for basketball through the athletics website. Single game passes go for $5 for each men’s or women’s game, while doubleheader passes cost $8. A doubleheader pass gives fans access to both games during each of the eight MEAC twinbills throughout the year.

Fans must purchase game-day or doubleheader passes the day of the actual contest(s). All subscribers must create a user name and password prior to making a season, doubleheader or single-game purchase.

In addition, for all home games that are broadcast on the NSU Sports Network, the video stream will carry the live audio commentary.

The Spartan women will officially kick off their season at home on Nov. 13 against USC Upstate. The home opener for the men’s team will take place on Nov. 17 against Washington Adventist
