INDIANAPOLIS - The Horizon League Network, once again showing its prowess on the new media front, has launched HLN Mobile -- a streaming video application for iPhone and iPod Touch users.
Via the free application, Horizon League fans can access an array of video files, including game highlights, coach interviews and much more. HLN Mobile also pulls in the most recent news stories, up-to-date schedules and a community link that features ticket and alumni information. The application is available as a free download on the iTunes App Store.
"The Horizon League is always looking for ways to differentiate its new media offerings from other collegiate sports organizations," said Horizon League Director of New Media and Technology Nate Flannery. "With the amount of students, fans and alumni using these mobile devices, it seemed like a logical place to promote our brand and content."
