FARGO — Forum Communications is upping its game in the distribution of North Dakota State University football games this season. Subscribers to WDAY Sports+, which can be accessed on the InForum.com website, will be able to livestream games if they are in the WDAY-TV broadcast coverage area.

The new offering is part of Forum Communication’s contract with Learfield, which handles NDSU’s media rights.

“We’re expanding our distribution platforms as people change the way they consume content,” said Josh Rohrer, WDAY general manager and vice president of broadcast. “We want to be on the forefront of distributing that content in places people want it.”

The streamed games are in addition to that offering on ESPN-Plus and GoBison.com sites. WDAY Sports+ is available for $9.99 per month or $100 per year and also includes access to weekly high school games in North Dakota and western Minnesota and games involving Minnesota State University Moorhead. Subscribers outside of the WDAY-TV broadcast footprint will not be able to access Bison games live but can watch them on the site after they conclude.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
