Hudl TV is partnering with the NCAA and NCAA Digital to stream more than 200 NCAA Division II championships in 2023-2024.
The partnership, managed by Warner Bros. Discovery Sports, will stream live and on-demand coverage of Division II Football and Women’s Volleyball Championships this fall. This winter, audiences can catch the Division II Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships on Hudl.
“The NCAA is excited to partner with Hudl to extend the reach of Division II championships,” said Chris Termini, NCAA managing director of championships external operations. “This collaboration, in partnership with WBD Sports, will allow fans to support their favorite Division II teams and student-athletes from anywhere across multiple platforms and integrates the championship streams with a broad range of Division II regular-season coverage available on the Hudl platform. Our aim is to make championship moments more accessible and memorable than ever before.”
The agreement will expand live championship coverage on ncaa.com, giving fans a chance to cheer on their favorite teams and student-athletes on Hudl-powered streaming.
The new NCAA Championships Pass app will be available on Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, and Google TV devices. Fans can pay to watch at $9.95 per contest or pay $19.95 to access all Division II football games through the quarterfinal round. For $29.95, members can watch all Division II women’s volleyball matches.
Hudl will release prices for basketball at a later date.
Included on the Hudl platform are all Division II football games not distributed by ESPN and doesn’t include the semifinals and championship game. Women’s basketball semifinals and finals will air on the CBS Sports Network, while men’s basketball will round out their season on CBS Sports and CBS.
Hudl’s live streaming platform hosts 16 Division II conferences live and on-demand through the regular season and conference championship contests on the web, mobile devices, and compatible smart TVs.
“We are excited to build upon our NCAA Division II regular-season and conference championship relationships to now incorporate Association tournaments,” said Ben Kant, head of streaming at Hudl. “With this partnership, we will enable fans to seamlessly stay connected with their teams and athletes throughout regular and postseasons, ensuring that they never miss a moment.”
