A-Sun teams with NeuLion
The Atlantic Sun Conference will re-launch as ASun.TV in a partnership with
NeuLion and JumpTV. ASun.TV will webcast a minimum of 660 regular-season and
championship games across a variety of A-Sun sports, including men’s and
women’s basketball, soccer and volleyball, as well as baseball and softball
throughout the 2008-09 academic year.
“Last year’s debut of ASun.TV received rave reviews from all
sides,” Atlantic Sun Commissioner Ted Gumbart said. “We’ve learned
more about what fans use and want and this arrangement with NeuLion will allow
us to deliver the best in service, quality and cutting-edge features for
viewers. We look forward to a great year with ASun.TV.”
“College sports programming is more in-demand and competitive than ever
before. NeuLion is pleased to deliver an end-to-end service that caters to this
audience and remains committed to providing the highest quality user
experience. As rich new media evolves, this online service keeps the Atlantic Sun
Conference at the forefront,” said Chris Wagner, NeuLion’s executive vice
president and co-founder.
Marketing efforts for the service will led by Rights Marketing Group (RMG),
the A-Sun’s exclusive marketing and media partner.
“We are excited about our partnership with NeuLion, whose experience in the
industry and technical acumen, will undoubtedly aid in delivering a first class
video streaming service, to our member schools and ultimately for our
subscribers,” RMG’s president John Zarzycki, said.
