Highlands Athletics Going Live Across the Country
As of now, Highlands plans to broadcast all the home varsity football games, some away football games and select games from other sports such as basketball and volleyball for an annual pass of $30. It must be purchased through the Highlands High School Athletic Department at (859) 815-2608 by August 31. Highlands High teacher Bill Poff will guide the broadcasts by Highlands High students.
"This is geared toward students," said Matt Haskamp, Highlands Director of Athletics. "It gets them real-world experience."
The regular price for an annual pass purchased through the NFHS Network (www.nfhsnetwork.com) are $60. One can also purchase a monthly pass for $9.95 and a four-month Season Pass for $40. A portion of the fees go back to Highlands High School.
The subscription includes access to NFHS Network broadcasts across the country including the Kentucky High School Athletic Association state football championships in December. Fans were not able to see the game live on the Internet without subscribing to the network unlike 2014.
All subscriptions are able to have up to three logins and games can also be seen "on demand" using devices that connect to the Internet such as smartphones. The only catch is some games may be blacked out for a time by the school.
