You can watch a lot of FCIAC playoffs on the HAN Network over the next two weeks. Starting with the boys soccer quarterfinals on Friday, Oct. 28, HAN Network will feature live coverage of nine playoff games — plus two big regular season contests — by Saturday, Nov. 5, in boys and girls soccer, field hockey and volleyball.
Along with all games streaming for free at HAN.Network, you can now watch all the games live (and on-demand) on the HAN Network app, available in the App Store for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, as well as in the Google Play Store for Android devices. The app also includes HAN Network’s news, arts and lifestyle programs, the latest scores around the FCIAC, photos and much more.
Many of the games are also broadcast live on Frontier Communications’ Vantage Sports Network (Ch. 600/1600HD) in Connecticut.
While HAN won’t have any of the early round girls volleyball tournament, we will be at Brien McMahon High School on Friday, Oct. 28, when the Senators host the Greenwich Cardinals. It should be a playoff-like atmosphere as the winner of that match gets the No. 1 seed in the FCIAC postseason tournament.
Here is the HAN Network sports schedule over the next 10 days. Note: Times are subject to change, you can see the latest schedule at live.HAN.Network/schedule/.
