WAC DN worse than ever - SeattleVandals - 11-23-2018 04:33 PM

Three of four Seattle U games on the WAC Digital Network this year had broken streams and mostly wouldn't load any audio or video. The third time today against Denver is ridiculous. There is no information being put out by the WAC on this.

UMKCs game on the WAC DN was also aborted before the game even started and won't be streamed.

Are any other schools having these issues or just Seattle U? Jim Hayford commented on the issues after the SU-Bryant game, so SU is aware of how over half their games now have not been available to stream due to WAC DN technical difficulties. At this point, 3/4 failed streams, you'd think there'd be a lot more urgency and even an attempt to find a mid season alternative

Is this on the OTT Platform? Website? Both?

I tuned in for the NMSU vs. ENMU in the second half on the OTT. Picture was in SD, occasionally fluctuating to HD.

I look around at other conferences digital networks. Picture quality is good. Not sure why the WAC can't figure it out. Guess this what you get when you hire a guy who's biggest digital content accomplishment involves uploading videos to YouTube.

You can try emailing Eric Danner: edanner@wac.org

He's in charge of all things WAC DN. Good luck if you do. Still waiting on a response to an email from two years ago. I was cordial. Know of other fans who emailed him and he doesn't respond. At least his predecessor responded. Then again his predecessor knew how to run the WAC DN properly. But when you get a job with an NBA team, it sure beats working for the WAC.

I'll email him and see what he says. I'm trying to watch through chrome mobile on a Google Pixel 2 running Android 9. I'm going to try my PlayStation tomorrow and see if it's better through there. Not a good sample size of how others did today, most seemed to be at the game, but in past everyone has had some kind of issue, if not no picture)audio at all

On a side note, Longwood and Fairfield are playing each other right now on the WAC DN (can't get picture or audio) as part of the Elgin Baylor Classic at Seattle U. Don't remember two non WAC teams playing on the WDN

Sounds about right.

For the hell of it I tried to pull up the WAC DN app on my phone (Android). Says my device isn't compatible with this version. Just got this phone in June.

I think it would be better in the WAC DN did away with its own OTT platform and get with Stadium to act as the OTT platform. They would just pick up the feeds. But it could attract others to watch WAC games, as other conferences are signed with Stadium.

Also the WAC is the only D1 conference that uses BlueFrame for a DN.

At this point,I'd be fine if they scrapped the WAC DN and just put everything on ESPN+

If we get what we pay for and the WAC DN is free, what are we really complaining about here? If paying a nominal fee means receiving a better service, what is the problem?


RE: WAC DN worse than ever - SeattleVandals - 11-24-2018 04:50 AM

Another option is Pluto.TV. It's been good for the Big Sky conference. Stadium would be my preferred choice though

Stadium is on Pluto, so getting on Stadium would get you on Pluto too.

Because i'm already paying around 100 bucks in subscriptions. I'm getting tired of everyone having their own subscription service. I have directv with most of the sports packages already. Why would I pay for espn+.

This^^^

More than likely, ESPN would require each school to provide people to produce the games. With very little to none monetary compensation. GCU may like to burn money, but not everyone else in the WAC would.

The Pluto version of Stadium is different. Stadium has multiple games going on at once at times. Usually when I check to see what’s on the Pluto Stadium channel, it’s a talk show instead of their main live game
