Comcast subscribers now have access to WatchESPN
For sports fans, the WatchESPN app is like striking oil. With the software downloaded and installed on your iOS or Android flavored smartphone or tablet, you can stream ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3 and ESPNU right to your mobile devices. That means that highlight shows like SportsCenter and Baseball Tonight can be viewed wherever you are. A list of current programming can be found at the sourcelink, but to titillate you we can tell you that you will be able to watch live NBA regular season and playoff games, Baseball, The Masters, College Football and College Hoops, and all four Grand Slam breakfasts at Denny's Tennis events.

While the app is free, you do need to be a subscriber to one of a select few cable companies and have a plan that includes ESPN. Up until today, the group of cable providers allowing you to access WatchESPN did not include Comcast. But now, subscribers to that provider will be able to authenticate their service and receive the streaming video as well. The ESPNNetworks enabled providers are Bright House Networks, Comcast, Time Warner Cable & Verizon FiOS TV and if your service includes ESPN, you can watch all of the different ESPN channels on your mobile device. If you don't receive television service from any of those names, but do get high-speed internet from Verizon, you will have access to ESPN3.

The only downside to having ESPN wherever you go is the hit to your monthly data cap, and the hit from your girlfriend or wife who will have to schedule an appointment to have a conversation with you.
