The self-titled "Sports Leader" works hard to keep its crown. With the ESPN app, you can watch everything from Monday Night Football to Sunday Night Baseball, with NBA, college football, cricket, ice hockey, tennis, and additional sports you have no idea the rules for filling the spaces in between.
Ton of content: At any time, you can watch any live broadcast from ESPN's collection of TV channels including ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, the SEC Network, and ESPN Desportes. Select sport event broadcasts on ABC are also available. You need to sign in with your supported TV or Internet provider credentials to view content.
You can also tune in to national and regional ESPN radio and more than 100 podcasts (including Katie Nolan's "Sports?" podcast!).
News, too: You can filter by sport, event, or league to see articles from ESPN reporters or from news services. You can set team and league favorites to have that news bubble at the top of your feed. And you can see scores, check the standings, and get alerts for teams or sports you follow as well as breaking news.
Confusion of apps: Along with its main app, ESPN has a WatchESPN app that seems to offer identical broadcasting feeds. And you can follow fantasy news with the ESPN app, but if you want to participate in a fantasy sports league, you need the separate ESPN Fantasy Sports app.
To watch sports on the go, the ESPN app is your one-stop spot to watch sporting events, SportsCenter, and other live shows, as well as tune into radio broadcasts. However, you need a second ESPN app to participate in a fantasy league hosted by ESPN.
