Press Release Summary: Sports fans now have a more convenient way to watch sports
and stay current with sports news. The Internet is providing sports enthusiasts
with the means to stay informed and be entertained, in some cases, more than TV.

Press Release Body: There\'s no shortage of college sports in the United States. At
any given time on television, there\'s likely to be some university playing another
on the football field or basketball court. College sports are big business in the
U.S. and they have the fan base to support it. For example, College Sports
Television which was the first 24-hour network devoted exclusively to collegiate
athletics reaches more than 52 million homes nationwide.

With so many people showing interest in college sports, football and basketball
dominate the headlines, leaving other less popular sports, such as lacrosse and
soccer, in the dust. Colleges and Universities now have the opportunity to announce
certain sporting events that hadn\'t typically received as much exposure in the past.
The Internet is now becoming the new distribution platform for sports. With the
ability to watch from anywhere and chat with others while watching, sports fans are
going online more often to catch their favorite games.

For sports enthusiasts hoping to see the latest track and field or swimming event
from their alma mater, the Internet provides a convenient way for not only watching
these types of sporting events but also interacting with other fans, placing bets
with sportsbooks, buying tickets or even customizing their viewing experiences.
Some media players even allow schools to provide their fans with a variety of camera
angles to choose from and allow for viewer participation with polls and surveys.

With these kinds of features as well as the ability to broadcast whatever sporting
events they like, Universities may soon be giving fans their own virtual stadiums
where seating is always front row and the weather is always clear.
