Media report on UMaine’s free video stream of home games

The Bangor Daily News and Portland Press Herald reported University of Maine football and ice hockey fans will be able to watch free live video streams of all home games this season. The UMaine Athletics Department announcement means all home athletic events will have free live video streams for the 2015–16 season. “The more contact you can offer to your fans, the more affinity you can build will lead to an increase in loyalty,” Karlton Creech, UMaine’s director of athletics, told the BDN. “We’re taking an abundance mindset and want to get our product out to our fans as much as we can.” Fans interested in viewing sports outside of ice hockey and football will continue to have free access to UMaine’s America East teams through AmericaEast.TV.
