ESPN has gone ahead and released its WatchESPN application for Android users which will allow for device owners to stream ESPN content on-the-go.
While the application is free, it unfortunately requires a cable provider to use. Worse yet, you have to be a customer at one of the service providers that have approved the application. As of right now, and this could definitely change, the app is only supported by these cable providers:
- Bright House Networks
- Time Warner Cable
- Verizon FIOS
- Verizon High Speed Internet
It should be noted that if you only have internet from Verizon and not the entire package, the only thing you’ll be able to stream is ESPN3. For the rest of you, you’ll be able to enjoy content from ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN 3 and ESPN U provided you have the latest version of Adobe Air installed.
So, if you’re a sports fanatic or an ESPN die hard and you meet the requirements, the application is available for consumption right now on the Android Market and if you’re interested, you can find it right here.
