If you’re a Windows Phone 8.1 user and a huge sports fan as well, you’ll be happy to know that the sports authority, ESPN, now has its WatchESPN app available to use now.
It allows you to watch live games, studio shows, and access ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU, ESPNEWS – you can also watch on-demand clips to see the latest sports highlights. You will need to log in with your cable provider username and password to use it.
Access to the streaming video is available in the US only and might not include your cable provider. Most of the big guys like AT&T Universe, Comcast, and COX are said to work with it. I live out in the sticks in rural MN and I didn’t see my local guys logo listed, but if you tap More Providers, it brings up a list of several other providers.
It’s also worth mentioning that WatchESPN is also available computers and other devices that are running Windows 8.1 from the Windows Store.
I just downloaded the app so I could get this news out to you. I will start playing around with it over the next few days and provide more details.
