ESPN Player on iPad

December 7, 2012

ESPN Player, the sports media company’s broadband service across the EMEA region, is extending beyond desktop computers for the first time, launching as an app on Apple iPads.

The sports streaming service is how available today as a free application on the Apple iPad from the iTunes store.

The new app offers fans the same coverage that the ESPN Player service on desktop computers already provides – including NBA and NFL action – in a dynamic new interface that maximises the strength of the iPad.

Other features include:
– Integrated social media sharing functionality: users can share links to videos or comments around games they are watching using Facebook or Twitter
– Users can watch in full screen mode at the maximum size each device allows
– Fans can access a full schedule of current live and on-demand games
The new apps will allow ESPN to deliver targeted marketing to tailor messages and campaigns to subscribers
