SAN DIEGO, CA – April 30, 2007 – The National Lacrosse League (NLL), North America's professional indoor lacrosse league, has teamed up with Veoh Networks (www.veoh.com), the leading pioneer in Internet Television, to launch an exclusive and dedicated channel on Veoh.com that will feature select full-length regular season games, the All-Star Game, and the highly anticipated 2007 National Lacrosse League Championship Game.
The National Lacrosse League channel at Veoh.com launches on Friday, April 27, 2007 and is the only official place on the Web to access full length National Lacrosse League games. The channel also allows fans access to NLL video highlights, interviews and behind the scenes content.
"We are very pleased to partner with VEOH, a leader in internet television," said NLL Commissioner Jim Jennings. "This partnership will allow fans access to full length NLL games online and help bring NLL action to an even greater audience. Through VEOH's innovative technology, fans can download and watch their favorite NLL games at their leisure, and relive some of their favorite NLL moments in full screen and at a high quality."
All video clips will be archived on the National Lacrosse League channel at Veoh.com, at www.veoh.com/channels/nll, but fans will want to get the Veoh Player and Home Delivery System to automatically download full-screen, DVD-quality versions of games and other content as they become available.
"We are excited to be the first Internet TV company to offer National Lacrosse League content online to fans while exposing the game to a wider audience," said Dmitry Shapiro, CEO of Veoh Networks. "Combined with Veoh's peer-to-peer technology, the easy-to-use Veoh Player, and our Home Delivery System, Lacrosse fans will now be able to watch games both on- and offline at their leisure."
The Veoh Player is a free, quick-to-download desktop application that can turn any fan's hard drive into a virtual DVR, allowing users to download and save episodes of their favorite NLL games to watch at their leisure with or without an Internet connection. Its unique technology also allows users to subscribe to the series and have new episodes sent directly to their Player as soon as they are posted.
For those on the go, the Veoh Home Delivery System is a brand new feature that goes one step further by allowing users to browse and select content from any computer with an Internet connection, while at work or traveling, to send directly to your home computer with a Veoh Player. This allows users to enjoy their favorite videos in a full-screen, DVD-quality format as soon as they arrive home without any additional downloading time. To access Home Delivery, users need to simply log on to their Veoh account from any computer and enable the Home Delivery feature.
