Bridgeport Sound Tigers Launch Video Portal

The Bridgeport
Sound Tigers have launched their own interactive video portal, “Sound
TigersTV,” the first of its kind in the American Hockey League. Following
in the footsteps of their National Hockey League affiliate, the New York
Islanders, the Sound Tigers will have various types of video available to their
fans any time of day.

NeuLion’s cutting edge technology, fans have the opportunity to interact with
their favorite players like never before,” Sound Tigers president Howard
Saffan said. “Our goal as a team is to increase the one-on-one interaction
with our players and fans and by instilling Sound TigersTV, we are one step
closer to achieving that.”

On the
video portal, fans can view game highlights, interviews, the players’ reel,
community relations events and this season’s MasterCard “Season of Dreams”
videos. All of the highlights from Sound Tiger home games are available for
viewing under the “Game Highlights” tab. Fans can also watch to pre
and post-game interviews with the players and coaches. The players have their
own section where they are “mic’d up” for practices and games to give
the fans an inside view of exactly what goes on in the heat of competition.

There is also a section for the numerous community relations events that the
Sound Tigers go to, in an effort to give back to the local community. The last
section of Sound Tigers TV is the MasterCard “Season of Dreams” tab.
Throughout the season, fans have the opportunity to submit their wish to the
Sound Tigers and have it granted. Thus far, several lucky fans have been
selected with on receiving a private goalie lesson with Islanders’ goaltender
Wade Dubielewicz and another a skating lesson with Drew Fata.
