    Are any of these matches televised?

    Congrats to the Shoji brothers. I know it’s still too early but I’m looking forward to seeing both as starters come 2016.

    rayson — your best bet would probably be to catch the live streams of the matches on sportlemon.tv. you’ll need to look up the times of the matches on the fivb.org site, and then go find links to the live streaming on sportlemon.tv.

    alternatively, i think this user on youtube has been posting some extended clips of the matches (in some cases, the entire match): https://www.youtube.com/user/volleyvids?feature=watch

    lastly, if you’re just looking for the matches on television … that will be harder to come by. i think replays of the World League matches are being aired on a tape delay basis on the NBC Sports Network. (I believe it’s channel 210 on Oceanic.) I don’t have this channel in my subscription though. I just saw the listing for the matches just scrolling through the TV Guide on my cable box. And i’m not sure how “delayed” the airings are.

    Good luck! (The best option for me ended up being watching the youtube clips.)

    Thanks, Cubicle1126. I’ll have to check if I get that channel.
