ESPN Launches New Apple App For Live Access To Networks

Get ready to watch ESPN on-the-go as the network announced Thursday a new app for select cable subscribers called “WatchESPN.”

The free app for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is available to Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks and Verizon FiOS TV subscribers who receive the linear networks as part of their cable subscription. Users will have live access to ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN3.com.

“Innovation continues to drive ESPN,” said George Bodenheimer, president, ESPN, Inc. and ABC Sports. “When we launched in 1979, nobody envisioned a day when people would carry ESPN in their pockets. But here we are. And we’ve reached this watershed moment for the industry through tremendous collaboration with forward-thinking partners.”
