How to Watch


The NCCAA Network is available on both your desktop and mobile/tablet devices at www.nccaanetwork.com, as well as over-the-top (OTT) platforms, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, and Apple TV. In addition, the NCCAA Network is available on the NCCAA App for iOS in the App Store and Android on Google Play. Mobile devices including iPhone, iPad, and Android will work with the default web browser. Devices should be kept up to date and connected to a reliable data connection for optimal playback. Apple users and owners of an AppleTV device can simply 'throw' the webcast from their iPhone or iPad using the AirPlay feature. See How to Use Airplay. Computer users can output their display directly to an HDMI signal if supported, otherwise a converter may be required. These options may require advance setup and we suggest using an 'On Demand' archive to test prior to watching a live event.

NCCAA Network Schedule


The NCCAA Network will be providing live streaming broadcasts from select NCCAA National Championships and Invitationals. For the 2021-22 season, the NCCAA Network is scheduled to feature 14 championship events. All games/matches of the championship will be broadcasted unless otherwise noted on the championship page.

Cost to Watch


A single game broadcast costs $6.95. Tournament passes are available which gives access to every game in that tournament.

NCCAA member institutions may purchase a member pass for a cost of $100 per championship. Contact Brandon Gilmore at bgilmore@thenccaa.org if interested.

A member pass includes the following:

  • Watch party access to stream to large groups
  • Two additional logins for viewing the selected championship
  • Access to every game of the selected championship

Can I watch regular season games in addition to NCCAA National Championships and Invitationals?


In addition to live and on-demand video of NCCAA Championships, fans can access broadcasts of regular season contests on the NCCAA Network from member institutions that also partner with BlueFrame Technology.

Is a certain internet browser required to watch online?


We recommend to use an updated version of Google Chrome for optimal viewing and compatibility. If your browser is older or outdated, there is a chance that it will not correctly load the website. Also, be sure to update to the most recent version of Adobe Flash. Flash is required for optimal playback on desktop computers.

What kind of Internet connection do I need to view a live streaming video?


We recommend viewing from a wired connection with a download bandwidth of at least 1000-2000Kbps (1-2Mbps). However, the stream may require higher speeds if the stream is being encoded at a higher bitrate. To test your speed, go to http://www.speedtest.net. Bandwidth fluctuates constantly (especially on WiFi and mobile internet), so running three (3) tests is recommended. As a general rule, your download bandwidth must be greater than the bitrate of the stream you are trying to view.

Can I download a broadcast of a specific NCCAA Championship game/match?


Yes, digital downloads of any NCCAA Championship broadcast are available for $9.99. Simply click on the 'download' icon of the desired broadcast.
