March 6, 2009
INDIANAPOLIS- The Horizon League announced late Thursday, March 6 that Friday's 2009 Speedway Horizon League Men's Basketball Championship quarterfinal games, including the UIC men's basketball team's contest against Cleveland State at Butler's Hinkle Fieldhouse, will now be shown on the Horizon League Network on a pay-per-view basis.
Each game will cost $5 (five dollars) to view online. The Horizon League Network has been free of charge since its inception four seasons ago.
Here is the official announcement from the Horizon League that was released on Thursday:
The Horizon League Network (HLN) will debut a new product on Friday, March 6 as the network will feature a pay-per-view system for the two second round games of the 2009 Speedway Horizon League Mens Basketball Championship.
The games will feature an increased level of production quality, including a five-camera shoot complete with TV graphics, instant replay and more.
"We have provided free content on HLN for the past four years and we feel it is time to test the market with a pay-per-view product," said Jonathan B. LeCrone, Horizon League Commissioner. "We certainly believe our production standards have improved to a point that will continue to attract customers to the Horizon League Network on a paid basis."
The games will be available to registered users of HLN for $5/each.
