  1. Does the Trackstream allow you to go to all 6 mats at the same time like ihsa does?

    When are the ihsa archives available? Is it after the tourney, or the next day?
    Well thats good two years ago I bought a years subscription. It ran out last year, just as our kid was starting his third place match. Had to quickly purscase another to watch. Apparently year subscriptions have to be renewed.
    Very good point. The stream itself will be exactly the same between Trackcast and IHSA.tv

    Also a follow up on the audio. There will be no audio on any of the feeds until the finals at which point they will have one commentator per mat. They chose to not have audio since the matside cameras pick up sound in all directions and they are worried about what might make it onto the stream.
    Thanks for the follow up.

    With track streaming live, it seems like the better deal at $14.95. for the extra $5 the matches are individually archived and linked to the brackets. If wanting to watch a match later it's a lot easier than the long archived streams on each match for each day that we used to get with ihsatv.
    Just paid for the track stream... Use code IHSAFAN and its only $14.99.

    Loaded the stream to mat 1 and it currently is showing the kids coming down for weigh ins and has a match assigned, bout 1001 from 1A. So I would assume we will be able to watch all the matches live through track, but we will find out in about an hour.
    So will ihsa.tv (via nfhsnetwork) carry the finals? That subscription is only $9.95/mo (have to cancel recurring subscription).

    The trackwrestling schedule seems to include more than the finals:


    02/15/2018 (01:00 p.m. - 08:00 p.m. CT) Day 1

    02/16/2018 (08:30 a.m. - 04:00 p.m. CT) Day 2 - Session 1

    02/16/2018 (07:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. CT) Day 2 - Session 2

    02/17/2018 (09:00 a.m. - 03:30 p.m. CT) Day 3 - Session 1

    02/17/2018 (05:30 p.m. - 09:00 p.m. CT) Day 3 - Finals

    But what you get with the subscription is confusing:

    ($19.99) 2018 IHSA State Championships (Archived Video Only)

    This subscription includes all archived video only associated with the IHSA State Championships. Below is a complete list of what is included with this subscription.

    Live & Archived: 02/17/2018 - 2018 IHSA STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS

    So 2 questions:

    Will the ihsatv include the finals?

    Will trackwrestling include a live stream or just the archives?
