Big Red fans can now access Denison Sports Network content through custom applications on Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV, thanks to a partnership with Stretch Internet.

The custom app will provide fans a seamless way to access content directly on their TVs through video streaming. You can watch Denison Big Red athletics on your television with one of these four streaming devices, or a “Smart TV” with one of the programs already installed.

The addition of the Denison Sports Network app is a game changer for fans of Big Red athletics,” said Assistant Athletic Director for Communications, Craig Hicks.

As consumers continue to cut the cord on traditional television viewing options, more and more people are turning to streaming devices for their content. Denison is one of the first colleges in the United States to debut its own custom app and we are thrilled that the Denison Sports Network will have a presence right next to your other favorite apps, on those devices.”

Users can access the content simply by searching for “Denison” on the app interfaces and then downloading the free app. Using the professionally designed, intuitive interface, fans can easily view a schedule of live, upcoming and on-demand broadcasts.

I think the first thing users will notice is just how easy the app is to navigate,” continued Hicks. “The live events are highlighted first but the cutting-edge developers at Stretch Internet have made the on-demand content much easier to access. If you miss the live broadcast, it will be there waiting for you to watch at your convenience.”

The Denison Sports Network streams over 150 live varsity athletic events per year in addition to providing additional content through the @DenisonSports social media channels and denisonbigred.com. Broadcasts are produced by Denison University students under the direction of the athletics communications staff.
