HLN SUPPORT
Do I need to signup to view video content on HLN?
 There is no need to sign up to access content from the Horizon League Network.  Live content is available by going to the Live Broadcast Schedule and on-demand video is available in the Video Library.

HLN Viewing Requirements
 Horizon League Network live programming and archived video can only be utilized through a high-speed Internet connection of 1.25 Mbps, such as cable, DSL, or satellite. If your connection to the Internet is by dial-up modem or is slower than a DSL connection you will not be able to watch Horizon League Network media. A DSL, cable modem or other high-speed connection is highly recommended.

In addition to having a high-speed Internet connection, your computer should have the latest version of Flash Media Player.

What does it cost?
 Nothing. One of the key aspects of HLN is that all programming is completely free.  There are no per-game, monthly or annual subscription fees.  Just click on the live game or on-demand feature of your choice, and enjoy!

Can I record programming on HLN?
 While there is not an option to record live content on HLN, archives of all men's and women's basketball League games will be available for one week.

The video is freezing or skipping:
Freezing or skipping video is usually caused by a slow Internet connection on the user end.  Please make sure your connection meets the minimum requirements stated in the HLN Viewing Requirements section.

I attempt to watch a live broadcast but just get a black screen where the video player should be:
 Navigate to the Adobe Flash Player Settings Manager.  Go to the Global Storage Settings tab and make sure the “Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer” is checked.  If it was unchecked, click it, then click to another tab to “save it” and then refresh your page.

If this doesn’t fix your problem, please check your firewall settings if you’re still not getting video.
