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
