Sports Organizations, like schools, school districts, private clubs, etc., can join SportsEngine Play and create their channel. An organization can also have team and/or tournament-specific channels.

A Channel can be specific to a sports organization, team, or tournament, grouping all their live streams and replays in one place. It can be private or public, listed or unlisted, and managed by the organization's admin. Click here to learn more about Channel Statuses. Follow a channel to keep up with all your favorite streams!

A Category functions as a channel, but instead of being organization, team, or tournament-specific, it focuses on a theme, like Basketball, Softball, Drills, etc. It automatically groups all available streamings within the theme. If you are viewing any game/event of a specific sport, follow the category to easily view all available videos.

Shows are managed by SportsEngine and are viewed live or on-demand (replay), having multiple episodes with a specific theme. Follow your favorite show, and don't miss any new episodes!
