LOS ANGELES (AP) ' WatchESPN, the online and mobile version of Disney's popular sports TV network, is being activated for most of Comcast's 22 million video subscribers.
It's one of the perks being offered to cable subscribers to convince them to keep paying for TV.
WatchESPN offers live feeds of four pay TV networks: ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3 and ESPNU. It also offers on-the-go access to feeds of ESPN Goal Line when college football is underway or ESPN Buzzer Beater during college basketball season.
For now, the online and mobile versions come with few or no ads as the subsidiary of The Walt Disney Co. experiments with interactive advertising.
Users must prove they are subscribers to use the website or the mobile apps. WatchESPN is also viewable on Comcast's XfinityTV service.
