By Posted 10 May 2011, 14:42

We have some rather interesting news now for all you Android users out there that thought they were missing out when the WatchESPN application was released onto the Apple App Store for iOS devices, as the popular app is now available for Android devices too.

As Dakota Torres over at unwiredview.com recently noted, the WatchESPN app will enable users to watch a live stream of many of the popular sports network’s channels including ESPNU, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3, allowing them to keep up to date with their favorite sporting events.

This means they can watch sporting events such as the NBA Playoffs, Major League Baseball and even all four of the tennis Grand Slams, direct on their Android device. Users can also watch Mike and Mike in the Morning, SportsCenter or any other ESPN original show.

The WatchESPN application does require users to be running Android 2.2 or above, as well as have the Adobe Air app installed. The biggest downside of the WatchESPN app is the fact that you can only watch content if you are a customer of a specific list of cable providers.

These include Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS TV and Bright House Networks. However, ESPN has mentioned that it intends to have more cable providers added in the future. You can read more about the WatchESPN app over on the Android Market.
