LEXINGTON, Ky. - BlueFrame Technology and the East Coast Conference announced a five-year partnership extension through June 30, 2025. With this extension, BlueFrame continues to be the association-wide streaming partner of the East Coast Conference Network.

"BlueFrame has really enjoyed working with the ECC and its member schools to provide the ECC Network," said Josh Braun, Director of Sales. "We are excited to continue to provide a great technology platform for ECC viewers and we're looking forward to five more years of a fantastic partnership."
