Sports network ESPN has launched a new app called [itunes link=”http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/watchespn/id429009175?mt=8&uo=4″ title=”watchespn” text=”WatchESPN”] which lets users watch live programming from ESPN, EPN2, EPNU, and ESPN.com on an iPhone or iPod touch. An iPad version is also in the works, but it’s not due out until next month.
The full WatchESPN experience is currently only available for Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS TV, and Bright House Networks customers. Verizon High Speed Internet customers can access ESPN3 content as well.
The app features a program guide and search function, but the main feature is live streaming of sporting events and news programs.
ESPN says it’s working on apps for other smartphones and tablets as well.
