Men’s AVL Finals Live This Weekend

Posted by Robbo on December 5, 2009

Three games from the Final Round of the Men’s Australian Volleyball League Season will be streamed live on the OZ Volleyball Channel from the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre this weekend. The final 4 teams are QAS Pirates, AIS, UTSSU and Volleyball WA.

Update: Due to large costs at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre, the games might not be streamed Live on air. We will still be recording and commentating the games but might have to stream them onto the website at a later time (then they will be available to watch at anytime). DVD’s of the games should also be available in the coming weeks. We apologise for the change at the last minute.

Update #2: Thanks to the AVF getting on board and supporting us, we are now able to stream the 3 games Live.

The schedule is:

  • Preliminary Final – Saturday 5th December @ 6pm – Loser of Pirates vs AIS play winner of UTSSU vs WA
  • Bronze Medal Final – Sunday 6th December @ 12noon – Loser of UTSSU vs WA play loser of Prelim Final
  • Gold Medal Final – Sunday 6th December @ 2pm (maybe delayed depending on previous game) – Winner of Pirates vs AIS play winner of Prelim Final

The coverage will start 20 minutes prior to each match and will be run by a number of commentators, and will also feature some interviews of ex-national players, people involved with the current AVL season and also spectators.

If you like what you’ve seen on the channel or would like to see more games in the future, please show your support by donating. The more support that OZ Volleyball can get, the more games that can be streamed and the better equipment we can use. Donations can be made by clicking the donate button, which will take you to the Paypal site.

University Blues Vs Tian Jin Streaming Live

Posted by Robbo on August 4, 2009

oz-volleyball tvThe Exhibition Match this Saturday night (8th August) between the University Blues and Tian Jin Polytechnic University will be streamed live from the State Volleyball Centre on the OZ Volleyball Channel on USTREAM. The match is scheduled to start at 7:00pm but this will depend on the progress of the Victorian Schools Cup competition being played all weekend at the same location. The broadcast will be started 20 minutes before the match begins so if everything goes to schedule, we’ll be on at 6:40pm.

The broadcast will be hosted by Ryan Dunn and Liam Sketcher from Victoria and will feature interviews with various players and coaches involved with the tour.

A dedicated network connection for the broadcast has been secured, so there should not be any limit to the quality we can stream. Hope we see you all there!
