Every Play, Earn $5k

Hudl + Blueframe Technology

We’re bringing BlueFrame into the Hudl family to give athletic departments new revenue generation opportunities with the ability to earn $5k in the first year by strengthening ties with fans.

Why We Teamed Up

Coaches and athletic directors like you loved the ability of Hudl Focus to stream directly to YouTube, but we wanted to give you more. That’s where BlueFrame comes in. Combining the capabilities of Focus with the power and simplicity of BlueFrame gives you unmatched flexibility to monetize your livestream and rally your fans.

Every Play, Earn $5k

Livestreaming is an indispensable part of high school sports now, and we want to make it even easier for you.

With the Every Play, Earn $5k promotion, your school will earn a minimum of $5000 in your first-year streaming*. Our industry-leading revenue model offers new and existing Hudl customers at specific product package levels a 60/40 revenue share via pay-per-view, with 60% of the gross revenue going back to your school, meaning more money in your pocket. Helping you support more of your teams by connecting them with their fans.

How does it work?

  • Sign up for a three-year Athletic Department Package
  • Utilize a paywall for access to your livestreamed games
  • Livestream all your varsity events utilizing your installed Focus cameras within 30 days of receiving them.
  • Livestream at least 30 eligible games using BlueFrame before June 2023
  • Reach out to parents and your community weekly with your upcoming streaming schedule and easy-to-access links

FAQ

General

  • What will happen with my BlueFrame products?

    While we work to integrate our products and companies, BlueFrame’s products will see no immediate changes. We’ll continue offering the great service and support BlueFrame customers have always had with BlueFrame.

    In the future, we’ll integrate BlueFrame’s tools more directly with Hudl’s and continue to grow the broadcasting and fan engagement capabilities.

    Nothing will be removed from current Hudl offerings; in fact, we’re excited for the new offerings and capabilities this will bring to our product set.

Support & Billing

For Hudl Customers

  • Do I have to stream to BlueFrame?

    You will not be required to stream to BlueFrame’s livestreaming destination (currently Team1Prep.com). If you’re using Focus, you can continue streaming directly to YouTube, BlueFrame’s livestreaming destinations, or another destination.

    If you’re already using another broadcasting software, you can continue using that with Hudl Focus.

  • What are the benefits of using BlueFrame over my current livestreaming platform?

    Flexibility and reliability are what make BlueFrame the premier livestream provider in the industry. Their suite of powerful and easy-to-use production tools offers anyone the opportunity to create professional broadcasts. These tools become even better when paired with Hudl Focus. Distributing your broadcasts with BlueFrame comes with the flexibility of choosing where you stream your games, and the option to monetize that content.

  • Will my existing camera work with BlueFrame?

    Any camera can be used with BlueFrame streaming or Production Truck. Using Hudl Focus? Improve your streaming setup by using Production Truck™ to add additional camera angles, graphics, and play-by-play audio. Blueframe streaming is also capable of receiving video from most mounted and automated cameras.

For BlueFrame Customers

  • Do I have to use Hudl Focus to stream with BlueFrame?

    No, you do not. You can use BlueFrame with existing tools you have. While we believe in the power of Hudl Focus to simplify the process for schools and provide an outstanding experience for coaches and fans, we want to give you the choice of the best option for your program.

  • Will Team1Prep / existing livestream destinations continue to exist?

    Yes. We will keep all existing livestream destinations available.

  • Will we still have the option for branded apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon?

    BlueFrame’s livestreaming destination, Team1prep.com (and other customized sites for customers), will continue to exist and are already available on those branded apps. We plan to maintain that capability.

  • Will I need to create a new account or can I use my existing account?

    As of now, BlueFrame and Hudl will operate as separate products, so you’ll have two separate logins.
