What a great age we live in when it comes to technology. With smart phone technology today many great things are available at our finger tips.

This season for the Express games I will be broadcasting can be accessed through a smart phone. So you can listen to their games anywhere you go. No more just being locked down to sitting at the computer to listen to games.

This season for the games I will be broadcasting, the games will be streamed using the Mixlr software.  Click here for Coquitlam Express Mixlr broadcast link

This program has been in use by a few BCHL broadcasters last year. And it's an upgrade over the system most guys used last year with Ustream. The biggest improvement is no more random interuptions for ads during the middle of a game.

A big advantage of using Mixlr is the ability to listen to games on a smart phone whether it's an Iphone or an Android phone.

For an Iphone or iPad, just download the Mixlr app in the Itunes App store. Click here for Mixlr Itunes download information


On an android device to get started there is some work to be done, but once you followed the steps it's as simple as finding the link on an internet browser. Click here for Android listening information

Here's what you need to do to download the Flash player for android devices then install it to be able to listen to games broadcast on Mixlr.

First look up what operating system your android device runs by going to settings, then opening up "about device" and there it should tell you which version of Andriod software your device is running. Whether it's 2.x or 3.x or 4.0 or greater.

Then on your internet browser google "Archived flash player versions" or  Click here for a list of Flash player downloads there's a lengthy list of Flash player downloads for various platforms available. Scroll down to find Flash player for Android archives for 4.0 or greater or 2.x and 3.x. Download the most recent version that matches your most recent version of your android operating system.

Once you decide which plugin best suits your android, download it then install it.

You may have to enable plugin settings on your phone. That can be found in the above link for Android listening information.

Now sit back and enjoy the wonders of technology. If you have any questions or are able to listen to games while in the go using your mobile device I would love to hear from you. This is a great technology and I hope people use it.
