LSUsports.net Home to All 2000-01 Broadcasts
BATON ROUGE — LSUsports.net, The Official Web Site of LSU Athletics, is proud to announce that it will be the exclusive site for FREE live streaming audio broadcasts of all LSU football, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball and SEC softball games for the 2000-01 season.
With the addition of audio of all press conferences and talkshows, the 2000-01 season will be the first in school history that all broadcasts of the LSU Sports Network are available live, free and worldwide on the Internet.
LSUsports.net also features a “members only area” called the eTigers Den. Membership features include live streaming video of non-televised home men’s and women’s basketball games, as well as LSU baseball games. Members may also listen to archived broadcasts from past LSU events and Great Moments in Tiger History.
Due to an agreement between the Southeastern Conference and ESPN, LSUsports.net will not be allowed to provide steaming video of LSU football games in the 2000 season.
LSUsports.net was launched by EATEL and the LSU Athletic Deaprtment in November of 1999 to serve the as the home of the LSU Athletic Department on the Internet. It replaced the former Official Site, sports.lsu.edu, which was maintained exclusively by the LSU Sports Information Department.
