HOUSTON - The University of Houston's official athletics website, www.uhcougars.com, has launched an enhanced and upgraded Cougar All-Access multimedia player in partnership with CBS College Sports.
The new Cougar All-Access is powered by Microsoft's Silverlight technology, providing increased web browser compatibility and a redesigned user-friendly, state-of-the-art interface. Those users whose computers do not have Silverlight, which was utilized by NBC during its internet coverage of the Olympics in Beijing, will be required to perform a quick one-time download of Silverlight before accessing the new video player.
The enhanced Cougar All-Access gives fans the highest-quality streaming experience and the most online video coverage of Houston Athletics. The new multimedia player also offers an improved search engine, which allows users to quickly locate videos they are interested in. Fans can search by sport, type of video and date to easily navigate to the newest content.
Cougar All-Access is a subscription online service that offers live and on-demand streaming video of Houston athletics and other features highlighting Cougar teams and student-athletes. Streaming video of live games across several sports will once again be available via Cougar All-Access throughout the 2008-09 academic year.
