HALIFAX — Halifax County prep athletics is going digital.

Per a press release on Monday, the district has partnered with the National Federation of High Schools to begin live-steaming football, basketball and volleyball games at Northwest Collegiate and Technical Academy and Southeast Collegiate Prep Academy.

“The ability to stream events is an absolute game-changer for us,” Halifax County Superintendent Eric Cunningham said of the venture. “We are now on an even playing field with the other surrounding schools. I personally am absolutely thrilled to be able to bring this option to our fans and give our student-athletes the opportunity to showcase their skills before a wider audience.”

Fans can subscribe to their team’s channel by visiting nfhsnetwork.com and searching for the Southeast Halifax or Northwest Halifax home page.

Once there, users may confirm their subscription plan — options include a $10.99 monthly pass, or a yearly commitment from $69.99.

The network, which took on prominence last winter during the initial rise of COVID-19, covers 27 sports from host schools across the United States.
