Abstract

A system and method for streaming video information to a user device includes an event server that provides restricted access to various types of event content information and services related to a particular event. A wireless portable user device may provide an access code to the event server at a particular event location through a wireless base station that is coupled to a local area network. A system user may thereby utilize the user device to access the event server for downloading appropriate event content information and related services. The event content information may include a direct broadcast of streaming video produced by a video service provider from local video cameras positioned at the particular event. In addition, the event content information may include a plurality of event broadcasts that may be generated by the event server after receiving and storing program information from the local video cameras, the Internet, and various external program sources. The system user may also request individual video-on-demand services for downloading specific requested information from the event server.
