Streaming of Games

Our football and soccer games are using the new Pixellot cameras. Because of this, the games are being streamed through the NFHS Network. We will have a feed running through our website and app during the games (www.glenwoodtitans.org/broadcasts). Nonetheless, viewers will have to have a subscription to view the games. To set up a subscription, viewers can go to https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/schools/glenwood-high-school-chatham-il. There is an app that users can download as well.

From there, they will be able to buy a monthly or annual subscription. They will be able to watch home and away games whenever a game is broadcast through the NFHS network. The games are also on demand afterwards. Many schools in our conference and area are using the NFHS network, so getting it to watch some away games would most likely be worth it.

Our volleyball games will still be broadcast through our Hudl Focus camera in the gym. There is no cost to watch our home volleyball games. But, as stated, a lot of our opponents are using NFHS in their gyms, so having the subscription would still be beneficial.
