ESPN Reboots Xbox 'TV Everywhere' App
Sports programmer's full TV Everywhere lineup now available on game console

The app now provides content from all of ESPN's networks, including ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3 and ESPN Goal Line/Buzzer Beater, through to subscribers of Microsoft's Xbox Live Gold subscription service ($60 per year). The companies announced plans to launch WatchESPN on Xbox in June.
Currently, WatchESPN is available to about 40 million households that receive ESPN's linear networks as part of their video subscription from Comcast Xfinity TV, Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks, Verizon FiOS TV and Midcontinent Communications. Users also can access the service online at WatchESPN.com and on smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app.
Xbox Live Gold members who aren't subscribers of those five TV operators have access to ESPN.com video-on-demand clips and highlights, but not the live games.
