'WatchESPN' App Launches On iPad

ESPN's WatchESPN App, providing live access of ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and
ESPN3.com, is now available on the iPad, the worldwide sports leader
said.

The WatchESPN App gives Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks and Verizon
FiOS TV subscribers who receive ESPN's linear networks as part of their cable
subscription another screen from which to watch ESPN
content. ESPN declined to comment on how many consumers have downloaded the app since it launched in April.

After downloading the free WatchESPN from the iTunes App Store via Apple iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, they receive instructions to enter the appropriate
multichannel-video subscriber credentials to begin accessing ESPN content from their
Apple devices.

ESPN
first launched an online-accessible authenticated version of ESPN in October
2010. Authenticated versions of ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN Buzzer Beater/Goal Line
launched in January 2011. Consumers can access the channels through a
centralized website, ESPNnetworks.com.
