Would you like to see more of the University of Victoria Vikes and their various teams play in the Canada West division of the CIS? Would you like to see the Vikes on the road too? You are about to have access to an expanded live stream schedule thanks to Canadawest.tv.
From UVic’s media release, “Canada West Universities Athletic Association (CWUAA) will now make available an expanded webcasting schedule on Canadawest.tv – the official home of web-based broadcasting for all 17 Canada West member institutions – for the 2015-16 season. The University of Victoria Vikes will continue to live stream all soccer and basketball home games via CanadaWest.tv.”
Canadawest.tv has been webcasting to CWUAA fans since the 2011-12 season. They have streamed 1,000s of Canada West events.
This season you will have access to every conference regular season and playoff game in football, basketball, volleyball, and for the first time hockey. In total, more than 900 Canada West regular season games are scheduled to be webcast in 2015-16, along with over 50 conference playoff games/events.
This is the good news, however, not everything is free. You will have to pay to watch, however, all funds will be kept with Canadawest.tv, to run the webcast service.
This is a great opportunity to provide game viewing experiences to former Vikes athletes, students, family and any varsity level sports fan.
“The purpose of Canada West TV is to make all of our great events available to our fans anywhere in the world, which is something that regular television simply can’t do,” said Canada West President Ian Reade. “We believe the development of Canadawest.tv is the foundation of our marketing platform for the future.”
The rates are as follows:
$33.75 USD will provide a CW multi-sport pass, which will give subscribers access to every regular season and playoff game/event, including the conference’s football championship the Hardy Cup
$22.50 will provide single sport access all season, both men’s and women’s. So for example, if a viewer only wants to watch basketball, they can take the single sport pass and get access to all basketball games.
$3.75 USD grants viewers access a single game on a given day. This viewing option allows fans the ability to enjoy a specific game, or event at an affordable price.
