TOKYO -- Limelight Networks, Inc (NASDAQ: LLNW) today announced that the company will provide Live Event Services for online broadcasts of the Hiroshima Toyo Carp, the popular Japanese league baseball team, delivered by RCC Broadcasting Company.

The live online broadcasts will begin on Friday 11 April with a game between Hiroshima Toyo Carp and Chunichi Dragons. The company will broadcast 15 home games that are not planned for TV broadcast, and 10 additional games that have previously been edited for time to fit into traditional broadcast TV time slots. Plans are to also broadcast “Climax Series” and “Nippon Series” playoff games if the Hiroshima Toyo Carp advance to those tournaments. Details of the live broadcast schedule are available online at

The popular baseball games will be streamed in high definition at 768 kbps, using Windows Media Player and will be available for ADSL connections and faster in the hope that many more Carp fans will be able to enjoy their baseball games online as well. Limelight Networks has already supported a March 2nd trial online broadcast between Hiroshima Toyo Carp and Saitama Seibu Lions played at Hiroshima Municipal Baseball Stadium.

RCC Broadcasting will monitor program traffic in near real-time using the LimelightEXCHANGE Web-based reporting console. The company will also use Limelight MediaVault to provide viewers with a one-time URL after a valid registration on the RCC Broadcasting Website, allowing only authenticated viewers to view the games.
