PAWTUCKET, R.I. – The Little East Conference (LEC) Commissioner Cora H. Brumley announced that the league's live video streaming service will now be known as the LEC Network, which was developed in partnership with Skye Design Studios. The web address for the LEC Network will continue to be www.LittleEast.tv, and games will continue to be available for free to all viewers.
"The Little East Conference has a proud tradition of technological innovation for the benefit of the league's student-athletes. It was time to give our webcasting service a proper name and dynamic visual brand identity," said Commissioner Cora H. Brumley. "Skye Design Studios has a well-earned reputation for distinctive graphic design and all our expectations were exceeded."
The LEC Network provides a centralized home for the hundreds of live game brodcasts produced each year by the conference's nine member institutions – Castleton University, Eastern Connecticut State University, Keene State College, UMass Boston, UMass Dartmouth, Plymouth State University, Rhode Island College, University of Southern Maine and Western Connecticut State University.
The LEC Network will continue to be powered by Stretch Internet in a partnership that saw the LEC launch the first centralized live video streaming service of any NCAA Division I, II or III conference in New England in 2014. In addition, the LEC was the first conference in the region to debut on OTT apps such as Amazon Fire, Android TV, Apple TV and Roku.
