2. Our Next Steps

For four years, D3Playbook has strived to bring you all the news from around NCAA Division III. We started in August 2019 with just over 50 “subscribers” and have grown to over 2,400 with nearly 5,000 followers on ‘Twitter’ (I can’t call it X).

It has been a labor of love for the most part. I have been able to offset some of our costs with advertising and am grateful to those who have supported me through their generous donations. However, it is clear that I cannot continue along the same financial path.

Today we introduce a subscription model for D3Playbook. Beginning on August 29, the majority of our content will move behind a paywall for an early subscriber rate of $69 per year. After September 15, that rate will rise to $89. D3Playbook will continue to be free on Mondays as we recap the weekend past.

What will you receive with your subscription? We will be introducing new features, including more interviews with those who shape DIII as well as a new podcast. For just 33 cents per edition, that’s a great bargain.

I hope that you will continue to be a member of the D3Playbook community and support quality journalism. Thank you.


3. Introducing The MIAC Network

“The Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) announced the launch of the MIAC Sports Network powered by Hudl TV and BlueFrame Technology. The MIAC Sports Network will be the official streaming home of all MIAC events and championships.

The end-to-end digital streaming service is now available on the web (https://miacsportsnetwork.com/) along with streaming apps for television and mobile devices, including Android TV, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Roku (TV), iOS, Android (mobile), and Amazon Fire Tablet. The app can be found and installed free of charge by searching for the MIAC Sports Network.”

» What They’re Saying: “The MIAC is excited to begin this partnership with Hudl TV and BlueFrame Technology,” MIAC Associate Commissioner BJ Pickard said. “The MIAC Sports Network is going to provide fans with greater event access and video quality than ever before, making it easy to stream events and championships in one central location for all 13 member institutions across the conference.”

» Worth Noting: The MIAC joins the Atlantic East, Centennial, Landmark, Little East, MAC, NCAC, NEWMAC, NWC, ODAC, PAC, SCIAC and WIAC with conference networks on the Hudl/BlueFrame platform.
