If you like watching TV shows and Sports on your mobile device, then you must be familiar with ESPN’s WatchESPN app that was released exactly a month back on April 10, 2011 for iOS. And today, ESPN has launched this application for Android devices as well.
As for all free live video streaming applications, WatchESPN app has it’s limitations too, rather stingy ones just like the iOS app. Watching TV shows, movies and sports on a mobile device or a tablet has become somewhat of a trend these days. Advantages of such mobile TV apps include the freedom to travel and watch your favorite shows, channels and sports and the ability to view them anywhere, anytime. They don’t cost any extra money either, everything is included under the cable operators service.
To watch ESPN on your Android device, you’ll need to subscribe to one of the following cable networks: Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks or Verizon FiOS TV. If you’re not subscribed to any of the those, then you won’t be able to stream any of those NASCAR races that you’ve been looking forward to watch on your Nexus S.

The Android app is quite similar to the WatchESPN iOS app and has the same look and feel, but is more optimized for Android devices. The WatchESPN app is freely available in the Android Market, but remember that you’ll need to be subscribed to those cable services to enjoy free live streaming of ESPN shows on your Android phones and tablets.You can also use Verizon’s High-speed Internet Service to view ESPN3.com on your device if you aren’t subscribed to any cable services.
