Source: iHigh.com news release
On July 15-21, more than 55 million fans of High School Rodeo will be able to watch all of the excitement in person or on television, computers and mobile devices.
Due to the partnership between RFD-TV, iHigh.com, and Alltech, wall to wall coverage of the National High School Finals will be broadcast on MyRuralTV.com and NHSRA's site on iHigh.com, while a highlight show will be broadcast on RFD-TV. Fans that would like periodic updates can also visit the NHSRA Facebook page.
For live coverage, every performance of the High School Finals Rodeo will be broadcast live from Rock Springs, Wyoming on MyRuralTV.com. Each broadcast will be archived after each event for on demand viewing.
"There's nothing better than seeing rodeo in person. However, since that's not feasible for everyone, we're pleased that rodeo fans now can watch the High School Finals on a variety of platforms," said NHSRA Marketing Director Austin White. "From the weekly updates on RFD-TV to the wall to wall coverage on iHigh.com, anyone that wants to watch rodeo, can."
For highlights, viewers can tune into RFD-TV. Additionally, for more rodeo action, viewers can tune in every Wednesday at 9 pm EDT for Cinchtown NHSRA Tour.
Along with the live broadcast, the site will feature photos from all the exciting additional activities that take place as part of the High School Finals. Live broadcasts will be available beginning at 7 p.m. on July 15th and at 7 p.m. and 9 a.m. July 15th through July 21st.
