What is NJCAA TV?
Launched in the fall of 2009, NJCAA TV begins its ninth year of live streaming coverage of select NJCAA Championships. NJCAA TV has proved to be one of the organization's most successful initiatives and has raised the profile of the organization, its member colleges and most importantly - its student-athletes.Since its inception, NJCAA TV has provided unprecedented access to NJCAA Championships with over 3,000 live and on-demand video broadcasts from the organization's top national championship tournaments.
The 2017-18 sports season marks NJCAA TV's third under a partnership with Blue Frame Technology. Based in Lexington, Kentucky, Blue Frame Technologies provides the NJCAA with end-to-end streaming capabilities, including its enhanced technology and proprietary software - Production Truck®.
How can I watch NJCAA TV?
NJCAA TV is available on both your desktop and mobile/tablet devices, as well as through NJCAA TV specifice over-the-top (OTT) streaming platforms, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Apple TV. In addition, the NJCAA TV app is available 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.

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.
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.
