NEW YORK (September 4, 2013) -- Livestream, the internet-based live streaming service, announced today its launch on the Roku® streaming platform, enabling millions of viewers to access free live sports, news, web chats, red carpets, concerts and more directly on their televisions. Additionally, existing Livestream customers can now watch their favorite events on the big screen in HD with the purchase of a Roku streaming device for as little as $49.99.
The announcement means that fans around the globe will now have the ability to watch John Brown home games in a more comfortable setting.
“This is an exciting time for Golden Eagle athletics,” director of sports information Nicholas Robinson said. “We’re always looking for ways to bring live events to our fans, and this allows us to engage with our fans in a new and exciting way.
