Sports fans could always look to the ESPN app for information on their favorite teams, but watching live games required a separate app. Earlier this month, ESPN updated the official ESPN app for iOS, adding live video feeds. While at this time the separate WatchESPN app is still available on iTunes, its content is now available directly in the main ESPN app.
Starting today, Apple users can listen to the live ESPN Radio network stream on their iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 7.0 or later. ESPN Radio is the first sports provider on iTunes Radio, and it will stream the same content as its terrestrial radio counterparts.
Sports fans will be able to enjoy sports talk shows including Mike & Mike, The Herd with Colin Cowherd, SVP & Russillo, just to name a few, and live events like the 2014 FIFA World Cup and Major League Baseball, including the World Series. ESPN said they are also looking to "bring expanded local station content to its listeners in the future," and noted that its ESPN podcasts and on-demand content will still be available for download on iTunes.
