Watch the Ones You Love On Fall Xfinity On Demand–High School Sports

When it comes to high school sports On Demand, admit it: as a parent, it’s all about your child. Or, if you are a high school athlete, it’s all about seeing you and your friends up on the small screen, just like the pros.

That’s really the best part of our Fall XFINITY® On Demand — High School Sports Schedule football, volleyball and girls soccer games: you get to see your child, your relatives, your friends, your alma mater or even yourself on television. You can fast forward, rewind and pause all their greatest plays.

All of the games will appear on Xfinity On Demand within 72 hours after they are played.

Even if we can watch the game in person, there is something about watching ourselves or people we know on television. How else can you explain otherwise normal people at a sporting event waving like maniacs the moment a television camera is aimed in their direction?

As a sports fan, I’m interested in watching high school powerhouses like Bellevue, Skyline, O’Dea or Lakes for the fun of watching the next Jake Locker or Kasen Williams play. All those teams, plus playoff games in girls volleyball and soccer will be shown. However, the game I’m looking forward to more than any other will take place on September 26th when Holy Names takes on their rivals, Seattle Prep, in girls’ soccer.

My daughter plays for Holy Names. I’ve watched her play dozens of soccer games. I’ve stood on the sidelines in the blazing sun and in the freezing cold when the rain falls sideways. In fact, I intend to be on the sidelines for the Sept. 26th game.

But I know there will be something special about reliving the best moments of the game a few days later with my daughter as we watch the game from the comfort of our family room. We also can share the experience with her relatives in Spokane, many of whom have never seen my daughter play.

Who knows, this could be the game where my daughter scores the winning goal or makes a fantastic play that will live on in our collective memories long after she has hung up her cleats?

I can’t help thinking that with high school sports on Xfinity On Demand, there will be hundreds of parents and relatives who will relive similar special moments during this fall sports season.

The reality is high school sports on Xfinity On Demand may not garner the greatest ratings, but when it comes to creating special memories among young athletes and their families there may be few things that are more meaningful.

I can’t wait for the season to start. Go (Holy Names) Cougars!

The following is a complete list of fall high school games available on Xfinity On Demand. All games will be available within 72 hours after they are played.

The path to find these games is simple. Go to On Demand, then Get Local, then Sports. Look for High School Sports, and you’ll find the list of available games there.

    Is it possible to convert an on demand high school game to a DVD for long term keepsake? I have a son on one of the teams playing on some of the games?

      This is a good question. Some of the folks here who work directly with the vendor who films the games are discussing this now with the vendor. If the service becomes available, there’ll be information shown during the game telecasts and then we’ll include the information here too.

    It’s a good question, and a fair one. We already have some Skyline games scheduled, and our goal is to have a wide distribution of games. With a limited number of games that we are able to broadcast, we’ve taken the approach this year of trying to provide “something for everyone” by offering a variety of interesting games between schools with strong followings from across the region.

    I am wondering why you are not planning on televising the 4A football game in October between #1 Skyline and #2 Eastlake. On paper, it appears to be the game of the year for 4A regular season football?
