KFVE's UH broadcasts available on Internet

An agreement between Hawaiian Telcom, KFVE-TV and the Hawaii athletics department will result in the Internet webcasts of K5 coverage of UH sports, the university announced yesterday.

The K5 telecasts of 70 UH sports events this school year will be available live via computer, then also archived on the Internet for possible later viewing, on a pay-per-view or season-pass subscriber basis.

Events will include K5 broadcasts of UH sports such as football, men's and women's volleyball, men's basketball, baseball and soccer.

"Video streaming of UH sports is one more way that we're enhancing Hawaii's ability to reach out to the world," Hawaiian Telcom CEO Mike Ruley said in a release.

"This provides UH outstanding exposure on a global scale," UH athletics director Herman Frazier said.

"iTickets" for a single game broadcasts will run $9.95, while full-season packages for each individual sport will run $39.95. All-season passes good for any and all K5 UH games are available for $69.95, UH said. Packages are for sale at www.hawaiiantelmedia.com and hawaiiathletics.com.

"We're excited to be taking our coverage of UH athletics to a global audience," KHNL/KFVE general manager John Fink said. "Now, K5 can be your home team anywhere you are in the world."
