WatchESPN Android app released (video review)

May 9, 2011

Last month, we demoed ESPN’s live streaming application for iOS. Now, the WatchESPN app has been released for Android. It allows 24/7 live streaming of some of ESPN’s main channels: ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN 3 and ESPN U. It’s free for those who subscribe to ESPN through Time Warner Cable, Brighthouse Networks, or Verizon FIOS TV. Those of you who receive high-speed Internet service from Verizon will have access to ESPN 3. The good news is that they left a note saying, “please check back regularly as new TV providers are added.” If you qualify now, grab the free WatchESPN app from the Android Market.

Note: requires Adobe AIR and Android 2.2 or higher.

UPDATE: video demo of the Android version below.
