PRINCETON, N.J. -- The Princeton University Department of Athletics today announced a partnership with Verizon's FiOS TV and its FiOS1 channel. The channel will present telecasts of several Princeton contests throughout the year, beginning this fall with three football games, three soccer games and two water polo games.
FiOS1 will televise the Princeton football games against The Citadel, Columbia and Cornell live and will then provide tape-delayed coverage of the women's soccer games against Hofstra and Rutgers, the men's soccer game against Columbia and the men's water polo games against Harvard and Santa Clara. Air times will be announced soon. In addition to the tape-delayed broadcasts, all games will be available for free on video-on-demand in the FiOS1 Local Zone folder.
