WatchESPN Now Available for Comcast Xfinity TV Subscribers

Comcast and The Walt Disney Company announced that Xfinity TV subscribers can now access ESPN live streaming content via the award-winning WatchESPN app, WatchESPN.com and soon on Comcast’s XfinityTV.com at home or on-the-go.

In time for the NBA postseason, MLB’s regular season, Euro 2012, and the Tennis Grand Slams, customers who receive ESPN’s linear networks as part of their Xfinity video subscription can now stream these events and associated coverage live from ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, and ESPNU from iPads, iPhones and iPod touch devices, as well as online.

The free WatchESPN app includes a simple user interface that takes the current online viewing experience to the high-resolution, multi-touch displays of iPads, iPhones, and iPod touch devices. Once a user downloads WatchESPN, they will receive instructions to enter their Comcast Xfinity credentials to access ESPN content on their device. The WatchESPN app is available free on the iTunes Store. Access on Android devices will follow in the coming months.

Xfinity TV will also integrate all of the content available through WatchESPN on XfinityTV.com and soon to the Xfinity app with tens of thousands of other entertainment choices.
