WatchESPN app now available for Android
Android fans that are as much as a sports fans as myself will be excited to hear that the popular iOS app, WatchESPN, is now available for Android devices.
The app will allow users to watch a livestream of the many channels of the popular sports network. The supported channels include ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, and ESPNU. That means you’ll be able to watch tons of sporting events like the NBA Playoffs, all four tennis Grand-slams, or Major League Baseball on your Android device. You can also watch the SportsCenter as well as Mike and Mike in the Morning or any other ESPN original show as they stream live.
The app will require users to be running on Android 2.2 or later as well as having the Adobe Air app already installed if they haven’t already. The biggest downside of this app is that you can only watch the content on your phone if you are a customer of one of these cable providers(Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks and Verizon FiOS TV). If you only have Verizon high speed internet, but not cable, you will still have access to ESPN 3. ESPN did mention that they would have more cable providers in the future, so that is good news for those of us who use Comcast or AT&T.
WatchESPN is not available for Honeycomb tablets and ESPN has not said whether or not it will become available yet, but an iPad version is expected to hit the Appstore soon, so a Honeycomb version should follow imminently in the AndroidMarket. If you have one of the following cable providers, I highly suggest that you download the app.
