It may be long overdue, but the ESPN sports network just released its official WatchESPN application to the Windows Phone store, bringing the network's live sports broadcasting to the Windows Phone platform.
When downloaded, the free mobile app will enable Windows Phone users the ability to stream live sporting events covered by ESPN and its affiliates from the various ESPN networks. Live games from major sporting associations, which includes the NBA, NFL, MLB, The Master, U.S. Open, and more will be available from the following channels under the ESPN broadcasting umbrella:
- ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU, ESPN Deportes, ESPNews
- SEC Network Plus
- Longhorn Network
It is important to note that you must have a current subscription to a partnered television network, such as Comcast, Time Warner, Dish Network, Cox, etc., to stream sporting events from the ESPN networks on the app. The arrival of the WatchESPN follows just a few months after the DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket application was launched on Windows Phone.
