A new app has debuted on the Xbox – and it has been awaited with patience. WatchEPSN is now available with access to the ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3 and ESPN Goal Line / Buzzer Beater channels – but only for Xbox Gold members.
WatchESPN comes to Xbox Live
Owners of Microsoftâ€™s Xbox can now watch their favorite sports events directly over the internet on the big TV screen. WatchEPSN obviously still require the service from a cable operator but the move is exciting.
