The Sanford Pentagon has partnered with Hudl Focus and Stretch Internet to  provide live-streamed video and audio at select events.

Production details and costs will vary by event and will continue to expand over time. All offerings will be available through this portal. 

The first events to go live with the new system will be the Sanford Pentagon Basketball Classic on Dec. 30 and the Sanford Pentagon Heritage Classic on Jan. 2. 

Stay tuned to the Pentagon's social media channels for the latest schedule and live-stream details.

Also, completed events will be available on-demand through the same portal for a limited time.

FAQ: 

Will there only be live video? What about live audio or live stats?

The production level will vary by event based on a number of factors. All events will have live video, while some may also have live play-by-play or live stats. That will be identified in advance of the event by a variety of factors.

How much will it cost to watch these live streams?

The price will vary based on the type of event. The minimum cost for an event will be $7.95. Typically, streams will be set up by event - so there should just be one charge to watch an entire tournament, for example, rather than creating game-by-game charges within a single event. 

Will the costs be recurring?

No. You'll only be charged once.

Can I buy a subscription?

At this time, we are not offering subscriptions.

Why are you charging for live streaming?

There are costs associated with the equipment, services and people-power required to create this capability. 

Will schools or media outlets be allowed to stream these same events?

School live streams will be handled on a situation-by-situation basis. But media outlets will not be allowed to live stream events that are being live streamed by the Pentagon.
