Time to Capitalize on all the streamed Floorball TV?

Nope not just yet...
Well the sport is not big enough yet... But that day will come too..
But we must realize that TV as we know it does not look the same anymore... And it is changing in front of our eyes. When will we have an app - for Floorball with chromecast capabilities for instance?

What Floorball TV? Ok here is a cool listing - look at Floorball News listing and you can deep dive into national schedules - up in the right corner http://www.netvibes.com/floorballnews#news . Here U find scheduled streams indeed.
But yes there is a problem to know what is up even if Floorball News list games in one place - many other games jumps up with a very short notice... from different places... So maybe it is hard to have one general listing. But it should not be impossible.

So what to do? Well sites like this one, Club pages and even National federations must start to embed much more live video - some do - and that is good.

Then Floorball must attack all new on-line TV providers.. No not the bad ones since this is a business ugly and full of seriously odd stuff and strange websites. So U better be careful.

But there are good ones too. Why not read this article?

Then to sign up - with your Floorball content to Frequency TV - try this...

Here is Pluto TV's Baseball channel by the way
http://pluto.tv/#!&channel=baseball

It would not be bad to find Floorball on Waywire either - here is NHL
http://waywire.com/pages/nhl

OK, we do not say that frequency TV, Pluto and Waywire is perfect - we do not say that these are all the channels that Floorball can or must use.

But we say there must be a plan - a marketing plan for how to further extend Floorballs reach with live high quality footage - beyond the initial live streams we have available today ;-D

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
