Fans of Johns Hopkins athletics will soon have more opportunities to catch the Blue Jays in action, thanks to an agreement that will provide live online video streaming and statistics for 13 JHU varsity sports..

Johns Hopkins has signed a three-year agreement with Stretch Internet, an Arizona-based company that will offer a variety of viewing options, including high definition broadcasts of events steamed from JHU's Homewood Field. Events can be viewed at Today's men's soccer game between Johns Hopkins and Gettysburg at 7 p.m. will be the first JHU athletics event broadcast under the new agreement.

Fans will have multiple screen layouts (including full screen) to choose from, access to a DVR function to review specific plays or watch the broadcast from any point, a picture-in-picture function that makes it possible to watch multiple events at one time, and access to an interactive area where they can engage with other fans via Twitter.

Live video will be provided for football, men's soccer, women's soccer, field hockey, volleyball, water polo, men's basketball, women's basketball, men's swimming, women's swimming, wrestling, women's lacrosse, and baseball, though not every event for every sport will be available.

Live broadcasts of men's lacrosse games will not be available because Johns Hopkins has an existing agreement with ESPNU. All JHU home games are broadcast on ESPNU or WatchESPN.

Johns Hopkins is the 10th Centennial Conference school to partner with Stretch Internet, which was founded in 2003 and provides services for more than 500 colleges and universities, high schools, professional sports organizations, and non-sports entities.
