Live Streaming in Nevada's Mobile App

app-icon.jpgNevada Athletics' digital technology has caught up. A few weeks ago, we launched a new version of our mobile app for Android and iPhone. The app features what you'd expect--news updates, schedules, rosters and all of the basic information about your favorite Wolf pack teams.

What's new, and most exciting, is that the app also features live streaming. From inside the app itself, you can subscribe to get live feeds of Wolf Pack games at home or on the road.

When the Pack is away from home, any game that has a radio broadcast will also be fed to the app. That includes football, men's and women's basketball, baseball and some softball games.

When Nevada is playing at home, in addition to any radio broadcasts, there will be live video attached to those sports. There will also be video feeds of any home soccer and volleyball matches.

Subscription prices are $4.99/month or $19.99/year. These are separate from any subscriptions purchased on our website.

Here's how to get to the video and audio within the apps. Once you open the app, navigate to the schedule page, either for the individual sport or the master list. The schedule should open up to the current date, showing any in-progress or upcoming games. Select the game you wish to view or hear. That will open up the live stats feed of the game. One of the icons near the top of the page will be that of a speaker or a television. Click that and the audio or video will load.

It's that simple. One word of caution. As of right now, it's not possible to select a game that hasn't yet begun or is on a stats system that is not compatible with ours. This isn't a common problem, but it did present itself while the football team played at Texas State. All Mountain West schools with the exception of Hawai`i use the same system as Nevada. If the system is different, you will not be able to get to the video or audio link. This issue is being addressed and will be fixed in an upcoming version of the app.

We hope you get a chance to check out the Wolf Pack on your phone or iPad soon.
