ESPN’s live-streaming smartphone app, the WatchESPN app is now available in Android Market, which is compatible for Android devices, bringing the same live video streams of ESPN channels it featured at its debut on iPad, iPhone and iPOD touch last month. There is no word on future plans for Windows Phone 7 support. To enjoy the ESPN streaming for free, all you need to do is to be a cable subscriber with the right provider.
This app will enable users to watch live streams of ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN3 on their Android mobile devices over Wi-Fi or cellular data connections, by subscribing to partner cable providers (Time Warner Cable, Bright House or Verizon FiOS TV).
Android users will also get access to various video clips and highlights from the day’s sports news, including the ESPN’s Buzzer Beater and Goal Line, once the season gets started. Bear in mind that this app will require the installation of Adobe AIR on your Android device.
You can download the WatchESPN app for Android here at Android Market (hit the link) for free. The target Android devices should be running on 2.2 or higher versions.
