Grambling State University First Live Internet Broadcast of Tigers Football Game

GRAMBLING, LA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2009) - Last Saturday's game between Grambling State University (GSU), and conference rival Northwestern State University (NSU), was broadcast live on the Internet through GSU's "GSU-TV" online broadcasting network.

This was the first live online broadcast of any GSU game, which saw the GSU Tigers defeat the NSU Demons 38-17, for their 500th football victory overall. The broadcast attracted online viewers from over 30 states and other countries, including Germany and the Bahamas. Two-thirds of the viewers were outside of GSU's home state of Louisiana.

In partnership with Network Foundation Technologies (NiFTy), which pioneered the "FREE-for-View" live Internet broadcast model using its patented NiFTyTV Online Player product, GSU-TV is a globally available, 24/7 broadcast service, showcasing GSU produced content and events, from sports to performing arts.

GSU fully intends to broadcast their home football games live on GSU-TV this season. The next home game is October 10th against Alabama A&M. Viewers can download the GSU-TV player at
