OT: NLL to broadcast games on YouTube

This is certainly groundbreaking! I wonder if any other leagues will follow suit.

Quote:
The National Lacrosse League, in partnership with The Lacrosse Network, has announced that the league’s online game broadcasts will air on YouTube during the 2013 season.

The entire 2013 NLL season will be broadcast worldwide and live on YouTube (subject to territorial blackout restrictions for some games). NLL’s YouTube broadcasts will begin with the season opener on January 5 when the defending champion Rochester Knighthawks take on the Washington Stealth.

“We’re excited to announce our dynamic partnership with The Lacrosse Network to bring NLL games to YouTube,” said NLL Commissioner George Daniel. “YouTube's worldwide audience will be a great platform for us to showcase exciting NLL action.”

“This is another win for sports fans around the world. By adding its live games to YouTube, the NLL will put its sport in front of millions, connecting and building deep relationships with its fans. We’re thrilled to help NLL grow and prosper,” said Frank Golding, YouTube Director of Sport for North America.

“The Lacrosse Network is proud to present NLL games on a platform that is international, accessible and interactive,” said The Lacrosse Network President Samir Chaudry. “Our partnership with the NLL is a major step forward in our mission to grow the game of lacrosse through the power of media.”

NLL games on YouTube will be available for mobile viewing live and on demand via iPad, iPhone and most Android devices.

NLL is fun -- but that sumo-style goalie gear is ridiculous.

How so? You can view sports matches online already.

The AHL should do this, but they also should use cameras made within the past decade.

I don't really see this as anything new. The NLL has had online streaming of games for awhile now. The only games that were not on the online streaming were the games shown on TSN or their American partner.

Quite honestly, I don't see this as a big deal. The NLL should really have been trying to capitalize on the lack of the NHL by getting games on national television. During the last lockout, the NLL All-Star game and the NLL Champions Cup Final were on NBC nationally.

lol! You should watch some Junior hockey broadcasts. Unless it's the Friday Night CHL game on Sportsnet, the quality and camera work is crap. But its still watchable.

Not on Youtube. The platform makes a massive difference.

I've never really seen an entire Lacrosse game, but I would definitely check this out. Could replace some of the time where I'm just streaming random stuff from Netflix I don't care about.

Awesome! I was getting into lacrosse when NLL was being shown fairly regularly on ESPN and TheScore. So nice to see that it'll be happening again.

This. I've seen my cousin's novice games shot on a cell phone that had better quality then a WHL playoff game.

CBC's stream during the playoffs for the Bruins/Capitals was awful too. 240p yo!!

It's a good watch. The action is somewhere between Hockey and Basketball, and it's good fun live (and not too expensive!) if you can make it out.

I'll definitely watch all the Rock games I can this year, both for entertainment and to show support for a sports league having some understanding of the modern entertainment landscape.

I played it in high school (albeit in the US Midwest, not exactly a hotbed), and it was a very fun sport to play. Not sure it is the greatest spectator sport though, granted you get some pretty goals almost every game.
