Comcast and Disney have partnered to make ESPN live streaming available to Xfinity TV customers through the Watch ESPN app.
This will include the ability to watch basketball games, baseball games, soccer games and tennis games, using the app. Here is more from the press release: “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 the convenience of their iPads, iPhones and iPod touch devices, as well as online.”
The streaming service on the app is already available to Bright House Networks, Time Warner Cable & Verizon FiOS TV customers who have ESPN as part of their package.
Disney also said that it has plans to expand its line of “Watch” products available to Comcast’s Xfinity TV subscribers. Later this year, the company will debut similar access to streaming via app for the Disney Channel, DisneyXD and Disney Junior.
