Why is McGill charging to watch Redbird and Martlet action?
There are various costs associated with the streaming of university sports (to buy cameras, encoders, audio/video switchers, hire production crews, etc.) These costs typically come out of university sports budgets. These budgets were originally designed to cover uniforms, coaching costs, travel, equipment, medical supplies, scholarships, etc. For years many universities have had to “find” streaming dollars somewhere in their budgets. The sad reality is that streaming costs money.  With constrained university budgets, new models need to be entertained.

McGill has made the decision to apply sports budget monies to sports and to cover production and streaming costs by charging fans a streaming fee.  We believe this to be an effective alternative to help universities manage their limited budgets and enable fans to enjoy watching the sports they love at a fair price.

What devices can I watch the service on?

The service is designed and supported for viewing on PC, Android phones and tablets, and iOS phones and tablets. The site is responsively designed and can be viewed on a variety of screen sizes. You may cast to a TV using an Android device for Google Chromecast, or an Apple device for Apple TV.

What kind of Internet connection do I need?

Our live internet video streams are delivered via adaptive streaming technologies. We currently deliver video at bitrates ranging from 400kbps to 4,500kbps. Most commercially available ADSL and cable connections should provide sufficient bandwidth for a quality viewing experience.

In order to view a video cast to a large screen TV, a minimum of 5Mbps download speed is recommended. Note that streaming via mobile connections consumes a lot of bandwidth. It is recommended that you consume video content over wired or WIFI connections. Shared hotspots may not provide you with sufficient bandwidth to have a reliable streaming experience.

How do I Cast the video to my TV?

There are there are a few ways to get the content onto a large screen TV:

  1. In order to Chromecast, you need to have a Google Chromecast dongle connected to your TV. Once the Chromecast device is connected to your local home network, you will see a "casting" icon in the player. Press the icon and the video will be displayed on your connect TV. For further information on how to Chromecast visit https://support.google.com/chromecast/answer/6006232?hl=en-CA
  2. To use AirPlay, you will require an Apple TV device connect to your TV and local network. Once this is set up, you will see the option on your iOS device (iPhone, IPad or Mac) to Airplay. For further information visit https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT204289
  3. If you do not have a wireless device that supports Chromecast or Airplay, you can use an HDMI (or similar connection) on your PC or laptop to display on a TV. For further information visit http://www.techadvisor.co.uk/how-to/laptop/how-connect-laptop-tv-3280787/

New casting technologies are evolving at a rapid pace. Your devices may have their own propriety casting capabilities. Please be advised that due to the rapid changes in technology we are unable to warrant that third -party casting technologies will work with the system.

Casting is supported in Google Chrome (Android and Desktop) via Chromecast and in Safari (iOS and mac OS) via Airplay. At present, no other Casting configurations are officially supported in any other browsers.
