WatchESPN app hits the market, only available to select cable customers

Android Central

ESPN has finally released an Android version of their WatchESPN app, which allows users to watch ESPN on their mobile device wherever they are.

The app allows consumers to watch content from ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN 3 and ESPN U. In order to use the app, you must download the latest version of Adobe Air.

This is perfect for the  ultimate sports fan that must have access to ESPN all the time. There is a caveat however: this app is completely dependent on the approval of the cable companies.

Here is a list of cable companies who have approved it thus far:

  • Bright House Networks
  • Time Warner Cable
  • Verizon FIOS
  • Verizon High Speed Internet (If you only buy Internet from Verizon and not the entire package, you will only have access to ESPN3)

Unfortunately, this leaves a lot of consumers in the dust and out of luck. Hopefully either the rest of the cable companies will be quick to approve it or ESPN will just release it universally. For those who have the above providers, the app link and press release is after the break.
