The Horizon League and WebStream Productions are pleased to announce the launch of the completely redesigned Horizon League Network website. The site, which can be found at ???www.HorizonLeagueNetwork.tv, serves as a portal to hundreds of live and on-demand videos while giving its users the ability to interact on an array of social media platforms.

"We are very excited to announce the release of the new site," said Nate Flannery, WebStream Productions Vice President. "This site will change the way Horizon League fans watch and interact with HLN's video content. With a simple click, visitors will be chatting with their friends on Facebook or posting to their Twitter account. Obviously the video content will still be the focal point of the site, but visitors will never have to leave the site to access their favorite social media platforms. At this point, we feel that is vital to the success of any collegiate sports property."

In addition to the incorporation of Facebook and Twitter, the new HLN also features hundreds of photos, an integrated blog and a news aggregator. The Horizon League will allow fans to view, download and share photos from each of its 19 championships via the photo management application Flickr. The HLN Blog increases its role on the new site with student-athletes blogging alongside the HLN staff. Finally, staying current with League news is now easy with a news aggregator pulling in stories from various outlets that cover Horizon League teams.
