We’ve seen the Windows Phone Store fill out with some really nice apps this past year, but the Window Store hasn’t been doing too shabby either. In fact, higher profile apps have been coming to Windows 8.1 on a more frequent basis. Today a highly anticipated app joins the Windows Store. WatchESPN is now available for Windows 8.[embedyt]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xd2ELscUD1M[/embedyt]
WatchESPN (www.watchespn.com) is a website where you can legally watch content from ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU, ESPNEWS, ESPN Deportes and ESPN Buzzer Beater. You know, sports!
The new app for Windows 8 is pretty awesome. We’re quite impressed with the app after just firing it up on our Surface 2, Surface Pro and Lumia 2520. You get access to live games, programming and video on-demand from all the above mentioned sport networks. You’ll never be out of the loop with the latest sport news and video highlights.
You’ll need to be a telco, satellite or cable customer if you want to access the live streaming. We signed in with our Verizon FiOS account and were able to catch the Michigan vs. Ohio State basketball game live! We’re digging how we can browse the various channels and sports to find things to watch. It’s also great having access to all the ESPN Originals programming.
Want to watch ESPN on your Surface and other Windows 8.1 devices? Then grab the app from the Windows Store!
