HOPE – An exciting new chapter for the Hope Public Schools is set to debut Friday night with the first broadcast of BobcatVision community television and live streaming services.
HHS BobcatVision Sports is the first viewing platform for the HPS which will broadcast and live stream all 10 Hope High School Bobcat football games this season.
“We had the opportunity to partner with Community Channel 16 and the City of Hope to take on this project,” Hope Superintendent Bobby Hart said Monday.
Hart said the intent is for the project to become a student-based program of the HPS.
“We feel it is a great opportunity to showcase our students and further demonstrate the support of all our local merchants for the Hope Public Schools,” he said.
Financial support for BobcatVision is currently provided by the Hope Public Schools, but the new capability to provide original content also gives the HPS the capability to produce sponsored content, Hart said.
Local supporters who wish to purchase a sponsorship should contact HPS Communications Director Ken McLemore at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 501-519-0530 during business hours.
HPS will have dedicated rights to broadcast on Hope Community Channel 16, and will also live stream the games directly to the internet via Facebook and other online platforms, as the project evolves.
“BobcatVision will be streamed live from all football games to Livestream and Facebook,” HPS Technology Coordinator Jeff Madlock said. “It can be viewed on any Android, iOS, Windows, Mac OSX, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon or Smart TV. The game will be rebroadcast on Hope Prescott Cable Channel 16 starting on Saturdays following the previous night’s game.”
Continuity to the Bobcat spirit in the broadcasts will be provided by Daulton Brewer and Doyle Brewer, of Hope, who will offer play-by-play commentary, analysis and color commentary for all 10 regular season games.
The project is to begin with the Hope/Nashville game Friday night. Game time in Nashville is 7:30 p.m.
