The work they do is some of the best I have seen,” Breakers General Manager Lee Billiard said. “Watching Boston Breakers live streamed games will be like watching a soccer game on ESPN. The HD stream is great. The people over at MediaBoss TV have been a pleasure to work with. They want to put out a high-quality product that will offer our fans the best viewing when you cannot make it to Dilboy Stadium. We have turned this around in a very short time, and I am excited to launch this stream and build on it over the season.”
